But for homes that hug the shoreline with ocean views in winter (where the climate has more extreme seasonal temperature shifts), white intensifies the chill of the inhospitable sea beyond the windowpanes. One client opted for heavy drapes pulled all winter to shield her family from the million-dollar view, and the moodiness that comes with looking out to a forbidding ocean. Transference, the idea that we feel cold when we see something cold, explains why we identify colours by their coldness or warmth. White is considered the coldest colour (in a range of blues, greys and greens), because it reminds us of ice and snow. What we see is what we expect to see (this is a truism of vision and explains why we feel tricked by a magician’s illusions), and colour that is associated with something known to be hot or cold can make us feel it.White can still be a solution for a year-round shoreside house where the climate has extreme differences in air temperature and an ever-fascinating view. Select a creamy white that has a small amount of yellow-orange pigment, framing the coolness outside by bringing the architecture forward and visually keeping the ocean at bay. In the summer, when the family is outside more than inside, the soft vanilla will retain its cool in the evening when beachgoers return to relax.Look at more gorgeous living room images
