I have yet to dip my toes in the ocean this summer. That’s just crazy talk, right? As I plot my escape to the coastline, I’m dialing the tone of Mood Board Monday back a llllot with a hue that’s synonymous with summer and crashing waves. It also has a cool, retro look that makes it that much more perfectly suited for the season. (Imagine riding in that vintage seafoam green convertible below.) It’s close to mint green but a little more subdued. Dive in.

      I love seaform green and in my minds eye I always see a loving lady wearing a seaform green dress with layers of chiffon flowing and blowing in the breeze on the beach. Just like the on in the picture provided.

    Lovely, peaceful color. It's always been a favorite since I can remember. I like the kitchen cabinets with the stainless appliances better than the sea foam fridge. The color reminds me of my grandmother's milk glass and my first(hand-me-down) bike which I painted with leftover wall paint from the living room in our new house.

    As my old Mary Kay director used to say "The hands that pull you up by the bootstraps are the ones at the end of your own arms." If you need to get out and get a place of your own, the first step is to make sure you have the funds to pay for a larger place. Then go to a real estate office for either rentals or sales and talk to an agent.

    Seafoam green – ahh, fabulous! It's the perfect accent color for a guest bedroom/bath at the beach — and what could be a more feminine, romantic yet sexy color than that of the gown above — like floating on a cloud. Who couldn't look manifique surrounded with such a color.

    In my 1950's bathroom the tub is sea foam formerly pistacio like the tiles that border the room. I suppose the sink and the toilet originally were also sea foam. Up until 4yrs ago I hated the color because it was so hard to find anything to coordinate. Now I have painted wide stripes of the shade on the walls and the ceiling is the lightest shade. I love it!

    Two of my Mom;s old chairs came out of storage, and they were upholstered Seafome color,probably 20 years ago Since they.are in good shape, i decided to incorporate the color into my livingroom. I was surprised to find some current decor items in that color to tie them into my living room. I really like the color!
