Floor It

To set a coastal mood from the ground up, paint porch floors a cool blue shade that picks up colors from the sea. Benjamin Moore's Floor & Patio Paint is made specifically for outdoor use, with a latex enamel finish that resists grease and grime buildup—not to mention heat and humidity.

Buy it: Costa Rica Blue (2064-50); Clearest Ocean Blue (2064-40); Ol' Blue Eyes (2064-30)
