Beach Inspiration by Behr Paint

Nothing gets me ready for summer more than a beach inspired room and Behr Paint on Facebook has certainly helped me out.  The paint on the walls is their Country Beige 760C-2 highlighted by the brisk white trim, Ultra Pure White 1850.   The sheer white curtains, textural accents, white furniture seating and accents of blue, make me think the beach is right outside my back door.

A Room with Many Names

The single car garage in my ranch home had been converted into an extra room many years ago.  I am using it as a dining room/sitting room which I optimistically call my “sun room,”  although right now with only one window and a small window on the exterior door, there is not much “sun.”   The walls have been painted a subdued yellow to brighten things up.  The color picked was a no brainer since two old yellow and green club chairs make their home in front of a corner tv in this room (still looking for the right slipcovers).  The room houses family pictures and momentos from the annual family beach vacations.  Here is our newest acquisition.. a handcrafted white Amish cupboard or sideboard.

Purchased this gem at a nearby shop called “Serendipity.”  Love the clean lines and the beadboard back.

Fun things fill the shelves such as the jar of sand and shells from Gulf Shores and the picture of an Irish Currach, both presents from friends.   The little cupcake on the green vintage luncheon tray is actually a candle.  The white frame sadly still needs a family picture.. ah.. which to choose!

The newest acquisition for this room is a white farmhouse table picked up at a thrift store which will be added later.. as soon as we get some work done around this old house!!
