If you are wistfully looking out the window right now wishing it were time for vacation, you are not alone. In fact, Sherwin-Williams just announced the 2018 color of the year, and it basically looks like vacation splattered all over your walls.
Sherwin-Williams has declared Oceanside their color of the year. It’s a deep blue-green hue that can’t help but make us think of travel. We want to be sitting by the ocean enjoying the breeze. Instead, we’re at work. Dreaming.
“People today have a growing sense of adventure, and it is making its way into even the coziest corners of our homes. We are craving things that remind us of bright folklore, like mermaids and expeditions across continents,” Sue Wadden, director of color marketing for Sherwin-Williams, told People. “Oceanside is the color of wanderlust right in our own homes.”
If a vacation isn’t on your horizon quite yet, then painting your house with the hues of the ocean is a great backup choice. And if you are looking to be part of the trend but painting your walls is not an option right now, there are lots of great accessories that give you the same vibe, but will also allow you to get your security deposit back. .
Here are some of our favorite accessories that closely resemble Oceanside and will give your home a nice burst of color.
This wall art found on Etsy is giving us all sorts of calming nature vibes.
We also love this fantastic hand-tufted rug, a great way to brighten even the most basic of room decor.
Or, finally, this blanket from Ikea is a fun way to brighten up your drab couch.
