KEYS TO AN IS­LAND LOOK

Midwest Living - - Spaces -

BEACHY HUES

Em­brace a watery pal­ette: Pair minty green, turquoise, cobalt or even baby blue with bright white trim or walls.

RUGGED MA­TE­RI­ALS

Chan­nel the up­for-any-weather ar­chi­tec­ture of the coast with durable choices like gal­va­nized steel and con­crete. Weath­ered wood (real or faux) adds to the salty vibe.

AIR FLOW

Sky-high ceil­ings and open-air trusses let hot air rise and breezes pass. Ceil­ing fans work won­ders.

BOLD BLOOMS

Dial in a Mar­gar­i­taville mood with hues that lean a lit­tle flam­boy­ant, like coral, ma­genta and pur­ple. Bonus: You’ll lure lots of but­ter­flies and hum­ming­birds to your back­yard par­adise.
