Thank you for your question. That is a gorgeous wall color for a beach house. I would not suggest porcelain blue for an accent color. Your wall color has a bit of a green undertone, so putting another blue color in there would look as though you were trying to match the colors, but wasn't close enough.

Another approach would be to choose bed linens in a sand color, or another warm neutral. If the linens had a print or stripe, you could try to match a small detail of the stripe or print to your wall color, to really complement the colors. You can add accessories in your wall color, as well.

In a beach house, I'm fond of color schemes that reflect what you see outside on the beach. Colors like blue, aqua, blue/green, sand, driftwood, while, and pale yellow, are great choices.

Here are examples of the types of color that could be used to complement your wall color: Benjamin Moore Sand Dunes

or Benjamin Moore Everlasting

I hope this is helpful,
