More Beach-y and Less Straight Jacket......

We're trying to decide colors before the baby arrives and I am otherwise occupied.....

I'm going for a calm, serene beach-y look.  However, all that white may look like a psych ward instead of the seaside.  I'd love any suggestions.......

The kitchen cabinets are shaker style painted white:

With horizontal shiplap or paneling for the walls:

A fun little tidbit for you from Beauty And The Bulldog:

"For anyone that isn't familiar with the term "shiplap", it refers to wood planks that were typically used as interior walls of old homes and buildings by placing them horizontally from floor to ceiling over the 2 X 4 studs. When pine went into short supply, and all of the high quality Long Leaf Pine was gone, sheet rock was invented, and thus this method of constructing interior walls ended...(sadly)" - 

I am loving the painted ceiling on these last 2 images.  Maybe that is how I throw some color in there?  How do you spice up your home?
