To conjure visions of tropical beaches, opt for a turquoise-leaning blue like Benjamin Moore’s Caribbean Blue Water.
It’s a saturated, deep hue that will make a bold statement in any room. For just a touch, try using it as an accent color on a wall or in the bathroom.
For a feminine-leaning hue that’s not too girlish, opt for a pinkish-gray. “Variating between a warm stone and a dawn summer sky, it’s an ultimately soft hue that’s harmonious for a den or a breakfast nook,” says Clement.
