Resist the urge to be too theme y. For example, the Cape Cod look is a very popular request. You know the hallmarks, beadboard, a blue and white nautical palette, some sailboat paintings. But this has been done so many times, it lacks individuality. In this room the coastal vibe was achieved through a palette, artwork and materials that give the effect without drawing on the obvious clichés.
The secret? Working with various hues within each of these two complementary color families. The blue included cobalt, turquoise, delft, navy. Within the orange family, corals, tangerines, grapefruits. Really rich hues, not muted. Using a combo of blue and white is like wearing a white shirt with blue jeans, or a navy blue blazer and a white shirt.
