Imagine sitting on a golden beach in Ibiza watching the sun go down. The sky is awash with shades of pinks and oranges which all come together to rest on the horizon of the glistening blue Mediterranean Sea. Ibiza’s sunsets are famous, and for good reason, so we’re here to help you recreate this moment at home using paint colours to prolong that holiday feeling.
To achieve that glowing Mediterranean sunset at home, opt for scorched oranges, burnt reds and fiery pinks coupled with vibrant blues that have a complementary warm undertone and represent the beautiful blue sea.
For a contemporary scheme keep décor light and airy by choosing a white base (we recommend Flutterby) then layer with elements of pastel hues based on this colour palette – pale peach, pinks and blues (like Peach Baby, Cupcake and Bo Peep) go well with our paint colour combo below.
Flower Pot, Polka Dot and Freckle are earthy tones that work beautifully together to help replicate the essence of an Ibizan sunset. (Side note – Flower Pot and Freckle are naturally occurring clay colours free from colourants!)
Synonymous with terracotta, Flower Pot adds a warm glow to any room, with its orange tones bringing the heat – perfect when designing an Ibiza themed interior.
Continuing the warm theme, orange hues such as Freckle radiate cheerful, positive energy into your home. Consider painting a feature wall in your bedroom to help kick start your day with a ray of sunshine.
Reminiscent of the Mediterranean Sea, Polka Dot is our easy going yet sophisticated blue. This colour is perfect to highlight wooden accents such as tables, door frames and skirting using Eggshell No.17. The warm undertones make it the perfect pairing when used with both Flower Pot and Freckle.
For a truly Ibiza sunset inspired interior, earthy materials should be incorporated into the space. Think wood, stone and natural materials as key to providing the perfect backdrop to your sunset scheme.
Be sure to incorporate elements such as pampas and seagrass into accessories like baskets and light fixtures.
Top everything off with some chic boho details like a macramé wall hanging and pom-pom accessories.
