Decorating with Island Inspired Aquas

Soft coastal aquas blend beautiful and calming colours with neutrals that can be used to create a serene and peaceful atmosphere in any room.

From Sea Glass hues and gentle wall paints, aqua inspiration is ideal for a Caribbean scheme.

When decorating with these tropical sea blues, it’s important to consider the overall look and feel you want to achieve in your space. Are you looking for a beachy vibe or a more sophisticated and contemporary look? Soft aquas can be incorporated for either decor direction.

Island inspired aqua hues

A good way to start is paint. Painting a room in a soft aqua tint can instantly transform the space and create a sense of tranquility. Soft aquas work well in bedrooms, bathrooms, and living rooms, where you want to create a relaxing and inviting atmosphere. Always remember that accent paint can be on the ceiling instead of the walls. When paired with white, this is a charming change up in use of colour.

In addition to paint, decorative accessories can also be used to incorporate a soft aqua color scheme in your home. Accessories such as throw pillows, curtains, rugs, and artwork can all be used to add pops of aqua to your space. These accessories can help tie the room together and create a cohesive look.

When choosing decorative accessories in soft aqua, it’s important to consider the other colors in the room. Soft aquas work well with neutrals such as white, beige, and gray, as well as other soft pastel hues like blush pink and mint green. By incorporating these colors into your decor, you will create a harmonious and balanced look in your space.

Rugs are also a fantastic way to add soft aqua to your decor. A soft aqua area rug can anchor the room and tie the color scheme together. You can choose a solid rug for a more subtle look, or opt for a patterned rug with aqua accents for a bolder statement. Note- be very careful however about making the rug AND walls both the same colour drenched hue. We suggest to either paint walls with the colour and decorate with a neutral rug or vice verse.

Artwork is another great way to incorporate aquas into your decor. A piece of aqua artwork can serve as a focal point in the room and add a pop of color to the space. You can choose a painting, photograph as seen below, or print in soft aqua tones to complement the rest of your decor.
