Get a coastal cottage look with this beach-inspired color palette

Jess Chamberlain,  – September 6, 2007

The prime source for Susan Delurgio’s decor is her store, which she owns with friend and neighbor Alisha Peterson. The shop has an eclectic mix of pieces ― from sea-grass runners and frames made of recycled boat wood to vintage furnishings ― in creams, whites, pastels, and other seaside hues.

Susan’s core palette consists of three colors from Benjamin Moore Paints (800/672-4686), including a custom-blended formula (OY-2 blended into a gallon of pastel base) for the living room and bedroom walls.

The fabric is available at Beach House Style; sisal rugs provide a neutral base.
