Beach House Paint Colors

I’ve been on vacation this week, spending most of my days sitting at the beach on the Gulf of Mexico.  And looking at all the bright beach houses in the beachfront neighborhood where we are staying in Seagrove Beach, Florida.  This is the beach house that we rented for the week:

I love how people seem to take more chances with the paint colors on beach homes, or any “second” home, for that matter.  Aren’t we all looking for something a little bit different than everyday when we vacation?  I love the dramatic, yet classic color combination on our house.

As a Paint Color Consultant, clients often show me photos and ask for similar color combinations for their interiors or exteriors.  So on my last day of vacation, I thought I’d share some photos I took in our beachfront neighborhood and reveal some of the colors I see here.

I favor houses with dark windows that really highlight the architecture.  The body of the one above is similar to Sherwin-Williams Resolute Blue SW6507, while the windows are Needlepoint Navy SW0032. Although these houses look nice, I always smile when I see beach houses in punchier colors and bolder color combinations. After this trip, I am really itching to create a custom palette for a fabulous beach house – inside and out.

So tell us, what color would YOU paint your beach house?

I would do a salmon color or a turquoise for a beach house.

Kristie, I LOVE , love, love this palette you made above. It is also great for a house with a blue swimming pool in a warm climate. You can do this in my house.

We are on our last day of vacation as well. I have really enjoyed looking at the cute beach houses. I actually dreamed last night that we decided to paint our house turquoise! In the dream I wondered what is Kristie going to think about this?

Seems like we are having the same lives right now. I also just got back from a week at the Florida Gulf coast. Miramar Beach is where I stayed which is right by Seagrove. A gorgeous place that I visit as much as possible. Decorating is always on my mind so I could not help but day dream about how I would pain the home if it were mine or mine to decorate. I must admit I kept going back to white. I do think it sounds kinda boring in words but if I had a home on the beach… Read more »

Seems like beach colors are mostly a neutral style that doesn’t overpower the senses. I like the all the colors of the homes you show here.
