If only vacations could last forever. While the fun eventually comes to an end, you can bring some of those good vibes to your home with “vacation paint colors.” We’ll explain how you can incorporate this into any interior room painting scheme.
Vacation colors are simply any colors that evoke the same sensation you feel at a favorite vacation spot. This could be an actual spot you visited once, or your idea of a dream vacation. Colors, after all, have a strong physiological and psychological effect. Many restaurants, for instance, have a red interior because the color is known to stimulate appetite.
If reminiscing about a past getaway makes you feel good, then our tip is to use a vacation color or two.
If you love coastal vacations, then we recommend light blue, which signifies the sky and sparkling water. You can also use white here as an accent color, which symbolizes white sand. This is a popular color combination even among homeowners who already live along the coast.
Perhaps you enjoy hiking in one of the Pacific Northwest’s many mountainous regions. In this case, we recommend a tone-on-tone color scheme of green with brown or blue as an accent. You can also incorporate rustic red and burnt orange, which represent common colors in the mountains during fall.
Maybe you prefer a desert oasis. Use earthy colors, such as that of terra cotta, bright red, and some sage greens. These are good color choices for the main living area, because they evoke a sense of being grounded.
