Today’s color trend has me longing for the beach. It’s a brilliant shade of blue called ‘Marina’ and it’s part of the Pantone Fashion Color Report for Fall 2017. I’m in love! This color could be described in many ways. French blue, sky blue, marine blue, electric blue, bright blue and denim blue. It even looks a lot like some shades of Santorini blue. It’s a very cheerful color that works especially well for coastal or beach style interiors. Let’s take a look at some great design ideas featuring this gorgeous color trend.

This would be a fantastic color for a spring wedding, don’t you think? Just look at these beautiful ‘Marina’ toned dresses and the bouquets are just gorgeous!

Now we’re talking. The simplicity of dark wood floors, white walls and ‘Marina’ blue accents. I love this look!

This shade of blue works well with bright red accents like with this red rose bouquet…

Or, combine it with darker blues and the greens of plants for a Moroccan feel like this…

‘Marina’ blue and white come together well in floral prints like this pretty dress by Milly…

This color just looks awesome as a floral print with white. These bridesmaid’s robes are another fine example of that…

For a bolder, more saturated look, go with ‘Marina’ blue on your walls. Pair it with a neutral tan floor and add some colorful accent pieces and you’re set!

This look really feeds my desire for a white kitchen. The blue accents and light brown accents really make this space amazing!

Just a tiny bit of this exciting shade of blue is all you need to liven up a room. Add it to a pale gray room with white trim for a relaxing evening retreat.

Gray and ivory with chartreuse and ‘Marina’ blue. So pretty!

This color trend plays nice with the beautiful blues of an ocean view. If you’re lucky enough to have one, that is. Isn’t this rug gorgeous?

This wedding must have been beautiful. I love the brilliant blue of the bridesmaid’s dresses against the white of the wedding dress. Throw in the greens and browns of the landscaping and the scene is just perfect!
