Many colors uplift moods, reduce anxiety and make you happier. Much like colors, locations can do this too. Why not bring the colors of your favorite places into your home? 

You may love their colors or style if you have a dream vacation spot or a happy place, whether a tropical beach or a historical landmark. 

At Brush & Roll Painting in Omaha, NE, we have been helping our customers finish their dream homes since 1996. We work with expert color consultants to help bring your happy place to your space.


This article will discuss some common vacation spots and corresponding paint colors. This article will help you find ways to add your favorite traveling location to your home without adding wallpaper. 

Tropical Color Palette 

If you’re craving the colors of the ocean or warm sand, add some light blue or neutral shades to your home. An accent blue wall with beach-inspired decor will put you right in your happy place every day. 

Warm lighting will also pair well with the color palette. 

City Color Palette 

If you love exploring major cities like New York City, Los Angeles, or Chicago, consider adding dark colors to your space. Black, dark blue, or burnt orange. Lighter pinks and bright purples also can be incorporated into a city vibe. 

All of these colors can be illuminated with string lights or bold light fixtures to accentuate the color. 

Historical Color Palette 

Historical landmarks have architecture and detail unlike anything else. Bringing this into your home can be done with off shades of white, beige, or light yellow. A vintage vibe could also include light browns and earthy greens. For a pop of color, use a deep red, blue, or orange!

Nature Color Palette 

Mountains, rivers, lakes, and forests are easily expressed in colors as nature is where colors originated from. Almost any shade of blue and green perfectly represents nature. These colors are very calming, which guarantees the same feeling of serenity you experience in nature.

Bring your vacation color palette home
