Colour by Region

Do you hear the ocean? Our coastal colour palette conjures driftwood grays, the glimmer of frosted sea glass, and briny waves of blue. Let colour help you capture the spirit and soul of the Southeast!

Crisp, clean colours that catch the light of day—and remain just as sharp in the shade—set the right tone for this laid back, lounge-ready part of the country.

The Allure of Coastal Paint Colours

The concept of coastal design spurs on thoughts of seashells and sandy-hued neutrals combined with happy colour accents like cerulean blues, coral pinks and bright yellows.

Coastal, however, doesn’t have to mean rustic. Modern style elements in this coastal cottage bedroom include a sleek lamp on the nightstand and a chevron-printed chair that adds contemporary playfulness against blush walls in Pristine OC-75. And with its slight pink undertone, White Opulence OC-69 on both ceiling and trim adds both continuity and contrast. Other soft, coastal paint colours to consider for your interiors include Rainforest Dew 2146-50 and Yarmouth Blue HC-150.

Exterior Colours: Cool Neutrals

Outdoor spaces in this region are every bit as important as interior ones…if not more so! A rich gray exterior backdrop, as seen here in Storm AF-700, is neutral enough for swapping cushions, pillows and curtains for an easy design update, while still making a meaningful colour statement on your home’s siding. White Dove OC-17 and Nimbus Gray 2131-50 are also much-loved Southeastern exterior paint choices.

Enliven neutral exteriors with saturated colours on shutters, doors and trim. Deep chocolate Night Horizon 2134-10, vibrant red Caliente AF-290, and one of our favourite classic coastal blue paints, Turquoise Powder 2057-50 are all eye-catching choices.
