The Colors of Florida Décor

Just as the sound of the waves can create a relaxing atmosphere, so can adding Florida colors to your décor. Soft tropical colors such as seafoam green, cream, sky blue, living coral, sandy brown, and gentle gray are often used in Florida décor. Deeper blues and bright citrus colors can be added to create impact. Against these colors, accents of coral patterns and decorative glass are especially striking.
