The Sea Glass Home: In Perfect Color

Michelle Nettles has been decorating homes along the east coast for decades, which means she’s no stranger to her own brand of coastal elegance. Her MJN Interiors is helping us bring our sea glass into our home  using the colors of the glass.

“Color is one of the most important tools at your disposal when decorating your home, but choosing a palette can be challenging,” says Nettles.  About sea glass as inspiration, Nettles says, “It always helps to find an image or idea that can serve as a jumping off point.”

Nettles adds, “With summer dwindling, we can’t help thinking about the beach and the casual elegance of coastal interior design. Our color inspiration will help you impart some coastal beauty into your home decor.”

Nettles calls these colors a classic choice.  “The palette  is a lovely mix of neutrals and blues. Blue hues are not only hot in the interior design world, they are also great for creating a sense of peaceful calm.”

“If you’re looking for something a little more contemporary and bright, this palette could be perfect for your home,” advises Nettles. These lively and bright colors are a perfect inspiration to create a warm interior loaded with personality.

On the subdued palette, Nettles says, “For those who prefer a more minimalist aesthetic at home, this spare-yet-elegant palette is a great choice. The majority of the colors are desaturated enough to read as neutrals, allowing selected pops of bright aqua to take center stage.”
