KEYS TO AN ISLAND LOOK

-

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.
