It’s summer time and the best part of the season is bringing in the colors that make us reminisce over all of the wonderful elements that summer reminds us of. Whether you love the ripe fruits and vegetables that light up your meals, or you remember a great beach vacation years ago – these colors can be brought into your summer home. There is so much you can learn from adding summer hues into your interiors. Take a look at these creative ways to wake your home up like a fresh orange this season with awesome color!
Let your spirits get refreshed with soothing summer hues
There is nothing better than a warm day with a cool breeze whistling through your open windows to get you in a summer mood. Bring this feeling into your interiors with colors that brighten your spirits and entertaining mood. You can learn a lot from nature: green grass, soft aquamarine blue water, sandy tan beach sand and all the colors that remind you of a beach vacation can come into your living room. As nature changes its colors, so should your home. Add a colorful couch with accent pillows that becomes the star attraction of the room – or spread your color out throughout with a color palette that beckons you and your guests to slow down and enjoy the season. Soft pastel tones that remind you of your favorite ice cream flavors are a favorite of many homeowners!
Colorful finishes in your kitchen and bath are perfect for your summer mood!
In many adult homes the urge to want to make your interiors feel stodgy, mature and sophisticated can often stifle your personality and leave your home feeling lifeless. Bring summer colors into unexpected areas of your home. Kitchen cabinetry, appliances, laundry room appliances, and even countertop manufacturers are branching off from traditional colors with designer palettes. Look to your favorite kitchen and bath designer lines to see what new finishes are available. From hunter green sinks to chartreuse cabinet doors, you will have no excuse of why summer colors can’t make your interiors sing with childhood delight.
Why should you just settle for bland color finishes?
If you feel like you don’t have anything exciting to wake up to in your bedroom, think again. Summer colors can help you learn that your interiors shouldn’t be bland and colorful bedding; accent rugs, window treatments and accent pillows can enliven your sleeping experience. Start off with a dynamic accent color on your bed wall that will help set the tone as the focal point of your summer escape inspired bedroom. Don’t be afraid to bring fresh flowers by your bedside, add framed summer vacation photos above your bed and use lamps and bedside table decor to pull your bedroom together. Don’t like a lot of color? Instead, try using crisp whites and neutral colors for your bedding and then add a pop of color with a throw blanket at the base of your bed. It will add just enough summer color to enliven your mood in the morning and send you to bed with a smile every night.
