If you are currently building a home on Roatan or recently purchased land and are starting to dream of your island home, the bright and bold exterior colors Caribbean residences have probably crossed your mind. If you are looking for your home to have an authentic island look and style, tropical colors that command attention and blend with the turquoise oceans, vibrant flowers, and warm sunshine are a must.
Here are some colors to start considering for your exterior and interior decor of your Roatan home. When it comes to creativity, only the blue sky is the limit!
Purple or tropical blue are brave choices, even in the Caribbean but will stand out and command attention. If you have an oceanfront or beach home, these colors sparkle against the blue ocean. Other bold selections are coral pink, tangerine, bright yellow or salmon hues and these can add intensity when used as trim colors. When it comes to island style, don’t be afraid to mix and match!
If bold isn’t quite your style, a softer pastel might be more up your alley. Subtle pinks, power blues or muted yellows work well on Caribbean homes. White is a long-time favorite for beach houses, but when a pastel trim is added, will take on a more tropical flair.
The inviting colors of the island should adorn inside your home as well. Caribbean colors create a cheerful atmosphere and will transform your home into a sanctuary. Be brave with room colors, like tropical blues in the kitchen or corals in the dining room. Accent the walls, and furnishings with vibrant touches that will shimmer in the natural sunlight.
If you are not sure where to begin for decorating your home, Roatan has some fine furnishing stores to choose from that have a wide variety of tropical infused touches. Proimi Roatan is a great choice and is located in Coral Stone Plaza in Sandy Bay as well as the upscale Atocha store in French Harbour.
