Hamptons Beach House Paint Color Consultation

When a friend requested a color consultation for her new beach house, I was elated. My love of the sea is as great as my passion for color.  It was a fun project, and together we created magic.

The architectural design of the house is brilliant.

Upon entering, you are immediately enchanted by the beauty of the boundless sea. Water is everywhere.

Most rooms has a lavish view of the sea.  Spellbinding.

The open plan, combined with continuous water-view windows, makes it feel like you're on a boat!

The wall colors were kept neutral in the main rooms.  The focus is the sea, sky, and scattered sea grass blowing in the wind.

Natural down to earth stone and rich woods anchor the home firmly into the ground.
(So no worries, the house can't float away.)

The wall color for the kitchen, dining, living room, and main hallway is Minced Onion (2145-60) Benjamin Moore.

Keeping these rooms one color emphasizes the open floor plan, and does not disturb the serenity of the views.

Minced Onion is a beautiful color that looks much lighter in the mid day, when the home is drenched with white sunlight.   (These pictures were taken close to the golden sunset)

The den wall color is Limesickle (2145-50) Benjamin Moore.

(Of course the den has its own set of windows looking out to the water, not shown)
