We’re big fans of this ocean-inspired hue, especially when paired side-by-side with these sunny shades.

Mediterranean Blue (Pantone 2995 U) and Coral (2024 U)

Want a double dose of hot color in your home? Pair two of our trending shades together. This bright combo brings an island feel to a Bahamas entryway while still remaining welcoming and warm, thanks to a neutral backdrop and natural textures like grasscloth walls and a pair of rattan settees.

Valspar Sea Wave and Valspar Ultra White

Spruce up a garden shed or pool house with this easy breezy paint pairing. The playful, ocean-inspired turquoise shade doesn’t go overboard on brightness, so it’s perfect in small doses (like shutters or trim) for even those typically averse to color.

Aqua (3105 U) and Lime (2297 U)

Talk about eye candy. Blue and green are a natural pair in the outdoors, and these bright, cheerful takes feel equally at home in a beach house. Happy up an all-white palette in a living room with art and throw pillows in coordinating shades. (We also love this color combo on a porch.)
