We're highlighting five color trends from our House Tour and Fall Colors Contest archive that are stealing the show, and today it's all about light, airy colors—cool blues and minty greens— that call to mind crystal clear oceans and windswept walks on the beach. Get this look for yourself with our Valspar paint color picks below.

Kyle's mix of blues is the perfectly crisp and cool. Aim for a lighter hue to start like Valspar's Lyndhurst Celestial Blue 5003-9C and accent with Rolling Sea 5001-10B.





A fresh minty green like Stacey's Woodland-inspired room is clean and airy, and paired with naturals like cream and taupe, it's wonderfully soothing. Make it work for you by trying Valspar's Summer Sigh 6004-9C and Bistro White 7006-4.



Barely-there sea green, like that in Jennifer's living room, makes you think of a clear morning breathing in the salty sea breeze. Try Valspar's Sprinkle 5008-9A with Filoli Morning Glory 5003-10B.



Shades of green with a little blush of peach are all that's needed to create a pretty palette like Brett has in his room. Do it your way with Valspar's Garden Sprout 6004-9C and Peach Burst 1008-1C.



Light greys pair perfectly with watery blues, as evidenced in Elizabeth and Kevin's space. Start with Valspar's Woodlawn Silver Brook 5001-1B and pair it with Deep Blue Sea 5001-10C.
