Help choosing color(s) for small beach condo

We just had all the walls in our small beach condo repaired, and would like to start painting, but can't decide on color(s). The first floor is ~500 sq ft, containing a kitchen, a half-bath, and open dining and living area with a large sliding glass door overlooking the ocean. I originally thought about painting the entire level one color - a very light blue. I do not know what color(s) to paint the upstairs, which is also ~500 sq ft. There are 2 bedrooms, each has an attached full bath. I considered painting the entire 2nd floor the same color as the 1st floor, but I am not sure if painting the entire condo one color is a good idea. All trim and windows are white.

Hi Julianne Boise! Is the place already furnished? Is it possible for you to post some pictures?

The 'safe' route would be to paint the entire condo the same color throughout.

It is furnished, not in my taste, but I cannot afford to replace it yet. The living area has a rose print sofa & love seat, the master bedroom has natural color wicker headboard, dresser & nightstands. The second bedroom has twin white wicker headboards, dresser & nightstand. I would like to eventually sell it, so I think I should keep it somewhat neutral.

Would a very pale blush pink work? Pinks reflect the sunlight and add a warmer tint to a room, and since you have natural wicker and rose print, it would help to tie them in together rather than making a contrast.

Again, ASVInteriors has suggested something I really, really like. A pale blush pink. Why not!
