Coastal Living Magazine is a favorite along the Gulf Coast, and Fairhope has been featured several times in different stories about our beautiful area. I’m always excited to see what new coastal styles and travel tips the stylish magazine recommends.
And now I can stop staying up nights worrying and wondering. The final votes have been cast, and Coastal Living has announced the official, “Color of the Year.”
Drum roll please . . .
I’m digging through my vast stash of Crayolas to come up with a perfect match. Is Sea Glass a good color for nail polish too? Â Actually, my pup would look cute in a Sea Glass colored collar. Now I can’t stop thinking about it!
I was secretly hoping teal would be the winner. Bummer. Now I’ll have to change all my plans.

it just feels so fresh and cool. Love it.
Oh yaaayyyy!! I had heard the color of the year was emerald green, and while I love gree, not a big emerald green fan. But I luv, luv, luv sea glass!!!
I love the new color of the year. Very pretty!
Beautiful color! Surely your pup needs a new stylish collar and it would be a great color for summer nail polish! I’m still on the fence about pantone’s color of the year, even though emerald is my birthstone! 🙂
Thanks sooo much for sharing at Amaze Me Monday!!!
Sea Glass one of my absolute favorites color – the first one to run out when I am painting. Thank heavens that they did not choose that awful emerald green like Pantone. I noticed that Sherwin Williams chose a softer green, too.
I love this color!!!
Gorgeous! I have sea glass (or something similar) in my bedroom, and it’s just so peaceful!
It is one amazing color! Life to the full! Melissa
I love it, just reading the name Sea Glass takes me straight to summertime at the beach. Beautiful chairs in your top photograph, especially paired with the wood table.
Sea glass gets my vote! It is my new favorite color and has eased it’s way into my tradition Birmingham Al home as well as all over our Orange Beach getaway house! We love Fairhope, the best little town in the South and art center to the world!
Love this color! So pretty! I have a new weekly link party which is live now and I would love if you stop by and link up this wonderful post! Hope to see you there! http://mariaelenasdecor.blogspot.com/ Hugs, Maria
It’s such a pretty color and we do see it a lot in Florida decor! I love Coastal Living…what a great post you’ve put together!
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! I’ve been crushing on the many shades of turquoise for months now. I love the freshness of this color which looks beautiful with so many accent colors. It’s perfect!
I just love this color. I am a little concerned about “this year’s color”. If you commit to a color a year imagine the work involved to keep current. But they did a great job this year.
That’s it, in love! This is SO gonna be the color of my next buffet!
Those cabinets look so pretty.
Very calming. I like it! Thank you for sharing with the Clever Chicks Blog Hop this week!

Isn’t sea glass just a faded version of teal? I’m thinking you could leave your cushions in the garden for a couple of weeks and before the summer is over y’all will be trending with the rest of the coastal folks.
