7 Basic Plots. 3 Basic Palettes?
I have been looking at beachhouse decor. First, you need to be able to shake off a whole lot of Kitsch when you google that phrase, whew!
But it seems to me, that just as there are supposedly only seven plots in all of literature, there are only three palettes in beach decor.
1. Navy and white or cream. Stripes. Maps. Ships. Shells. Texture.
2. All neutrals. Stripes. Maps. Ships. Shells. Texture.
3. White and turquoise. Stripes. Maps. Ships. Shells. Texture.
I am most comfortable with option 2, but I've also been there and done that with my primary home
I just don't like #1.
I am very attracted to number 3. I think I could become a HOT junkie. (House of Turquoise). I can see aqua painted steps, aqua floors, aqua furniture, and all Hannah Andersson aqua striped onesies for the family and guests (have you ever seen those ads? Would you or DH ever ever wear that? Is it a Swedish thing with light deprivation? well anyway)
I am willing to move away from the first fold on the Farrow and Ball brochure. I am ready for color. Ideas? Or is it really just the three?
