For a soft and refreshing summer look, we used Frazee CL2017W for the walls of this bedroom. The color is reminiscent of a nice, cool ocean breeze: subtle and calming. For a drink pairing, we went with a sparkling raspberry beverage

Bring the sunshine inside by using yellow! This room gives off a coastal vibe without being over-the-top. The wainscot wall, woven headboard, stripe duvet and reclaimed wood lamp are all reminders that the beach is never too far away! And what better to sip beachside than the perfect lemonade?

Looking to live on island time without the stresses of travel? With a beadboard bed and wood paneled wall, you're off to a great start. Add a few colorful, tropical plants, a quilted coverlet, and vintage table lamp and you've achieved the ultimate beachy vibe. Imagine you're lounging poolside while sipping on a delicious ocean float.

This look is exotic, sophisticated, and inviting–just like the perfect tropical resort. The interesting choice of Sherwin Williams 6356 Copper Mountain brings an undeniable warmth to the room, while the tall headboard supplies balance with its subtle texture. Mix in a weathered side table and some personalized elements from your travels and everyday will feel like vacation. We suggest sipping this iced ginger-peach tea that perfectly compliments the rich wall color.

You can never go wrong with crisp white walls, iron furniture, and wooden bedside tables. Add in a fun, coastal ticking stripe and a bright lamp with a burlap shade for a beachy, effortlessly chic look. Compliment the brighter hues with a fun drink, like this Hawaiian mocktail.
