When we moved into our new home earlier this year, we knew we wanted to decorate with our favorite vacation spot, 30A, in mind. We didn’t want to go full-on beach house, but we did want the beachy color palette while keeping comfort in mind. We like to call our home decor style, “Coastal Americana.” I coined that term after visiting 30A back in April and it’s stuck with us as we continue to decorate our home.
The color palette in our house is very neutral, but I wanted to add a splash of color to my beauty room and the attached ensuite. We kept the walls in my studio neutral to allow for more flexibility with filming, but I had free range with the bathroom. Here’s a photo of what my studio bathroom looked like before:
I love the neutral tile paired with the white vanity and trim. But I wanted to work in a color that fit perfectly in line with my “Coastal Americana” style. After reviewing the BEHR® 2018 color trends, I chose the paint color In The Moment T18-15 because it felt like the perfect color choice to bring a coastal feel into my space. Coincidentally, In The Moment has been chosen as the 2018 Color of the Year and with good reason… It’s a gorgeous spruce blue shade with a green undertone that fits in line perfectly with our coastal design vision. The contrast of this paint color with our white vanity is so beautiful!
BEHR PREMIUM PLUS ULTRA® Interior Paint & Primer in One is available to purchase at Home Depot or you can even order this color online in sample size or by the gallon. How convenient is that? My husband painted our bathroom in one afternoon and commented several times on the quality of paint. Keep in mind, Matt used to paint professionally back in college, so he knows his paint. He loved the BEHR® formula, the ease of application and the finish.

Wow, Angela! That color is beautiful! We plan on redoing our bathroom and I know that I want a lot of white but I’m not sure of what color the walls I want. We do live near the water so I want something a little beachy. At first I was planning on a very pale green but now seeing that color, I may have changed my mind!
Thank you, Michelle! It’s such a beautiful coastal shade so it sounds like it could possibly be perfect for your bathroom too!
What does the floor look like? Just curious.
it was ceramic!
Thank you! The paint color was perfect!
I love that color! It’s very similar to the color we have in our living area and kitchen. I love the coastal vibe it has to it but we didn’t go too coastal. I like to call our style Country Chic haha. Also I LOVE the subway tile in the shower. That’s like my dream shower, one day haha!
Thank you, Emily! I’m such a coastal fan, so it’s hard to no overdo it!
Beautiful! It’s so soothing and fresh looking. We’re looking for the perfect color for our bedroom. It’s one of our last rooms to do and I want it to be perfect. I want something light and airy…if that makes sense lol
Thank you, Marina! I absolutely get what you’re saying, I always describe my home as light, bright and airy. Hop on Pinterest and look up Monika Hibbs paint colors, I think that’s exactly what you’re referring to. 🙂
