Color is a key part of any home design, and this year’s color of the year, according to Pantone, the global expert on color communication, is “Classic Blue.”

I love blue in all its shades, and it’s featured front and center in Lagnappe’s business as part of the logo. Coastal locations naturally lend themselves to blue hues because of the water, and you’ll see that we take this blue inspiration seriously when designing interiors for our clients. I love using blue as a neutral; just like a classic pair of jeans, blue interiors go with everything.

If you’re looking for ways to add blue to your beachside property without doing a total remodel, here are a few tips you can try:

  • Update your bedding, towels or other linens to blue hues.
  • Paint an accent wall. I recommend adding the accent wall to a large, significant space, like the wall behind your bed.
  • Change a key piece of furniture, like a sofa, to blue.
  • Paint your kitchen cabinetry a favorite shade of blue.
