Coastal Home With Gray Exterior and Bright White Trim
A cool color palette perfectly suits this beach home. Blue-gray siding is accented with thick white window frames, columns and trim. Covered porches on the first and second floor add depth to the exterior and create a space to enjoy the ocean air in any weather.
A framed painting of the beach provides the colorful palette in this guest bedroom with double bunk beds. Coral throw blankets on the bed compliment the navy tufted sofa with matching brass floor lamps.
A soft gray and white color palette creates a serene master bedroom design that makes it easy to relax and unwind. Crisp, white linens cover the bed, inviting you to lay back and get comfy. A white shiplap ceiling and coastal wall art complement the beach setting.
This sitting area is set up to maximize the home's sweeping bay views; the room can be instantly connected to the outdoors by sliding open the glass doors. Next to this space, a wet bar makes for very convenient cocktail hours.
In the nook between this home's kitchen and living room, the designers painted the walls and the ceiling dark gray to give more of a bright and open feeling when entering into the other spaces which are white.
Bold Art Brings the Shore to a Soft Gray Living Room
In this coastal living room, neutral walls and furnishings ground bold art and accessories that pop. Pillows in varying patterns echo the colors in an abstract diptych depicting a tropical cove complete with palm trees.
Built-In Media Center and Window Seat in Master Bedroom
Whether you want a built-in media center or extra drawer space, this master bedroom design has you covered. A built-in window seat turns into two separate spots on either side of the media center, so you have the option to be next to the window or in a cozy nook away from the natural light.
Coastal Bathroom With Fish-Patterned Gray Wallpaper
Blue and green fish swim around this bathroom on the gray striped wallpaper. Empty gold and silver frames arranged on the wall add some metallic flair and decorate the space without disrupting the wallpaper pattern. A mirror on the wall above the toilet reflects the wall design making the room appear larger.
Crisp, white linens and soft gray walls create a clean and serene look for the master bedroom. Framed coastal artwork above the headboard and a vase of yellow tulips on each nightstand bring in touches of color to the palette.
Designer Becki Owens set out to create a dining room with beautiful light that is formal and fresh. Soft gray walls are paired with white trim and a rustic table with tufted upholstered chairs to create a soft, elegant feel. A Capiz chandelier is a stunning focal point that is iridescent and beachy.
After white and natural wood, gray is the most popular finish for kitchen cabinets, but this is one trendy color that’s not at risk of going out of style. “Muted colors are soothing and easy to live with, and a signature of my work,” says designer Angela Free. “This home is located in the foggy San Francisco Marina district and the neutral yet rich palette allows for a seamless flow between the indoors and outdoors.”
