If you aren’t ready for a bold choice in a big room, designer Jeffrey Phillip recommends trying it in a small entryway or powder room.

Accent Colors

Because Oceanside is so bold and deep, accent colors that work great with this are subtle, in the tans oranges or yellows, such as HGTV Home’s 2018 color choice of Honeycomb. But, even the new sparkly or shimmering paints like a copper or silver would look completely flattering in any space.
