Summer is the perfect time of year to refresh the colors in your home. You may be looking for new accent pieces in your sitting room, a new paint finish in the kitchen or an easy DIY facelift to your powder room. Consider these clean, gorgeous colors ideal for your home’s summer refresh.
Crisp white to brighten any room
A clean, bright white can be so much more than boring. Consider repainting your kitchen white and adding a neutral backsplash to add pop to this room. If you already have white cabinetry, you may want to consider a light, muted grey instead. Add a metal or shiny white backsplash. A neutral kitchen can be adorned with fresh flowers, colorful window treatments or slate grey bar stools.
Sunny yellow for the perfect accent
Bright yellow is the most welcoming color in the home. It may seem overwhelming for a larger room, so instead try using the color as an accent focal point. Consider yellow throw pillows for the sitting room, a yellow accent wall in the kids’ bathroom and yellow side tables for the bedroom. A bright yellow is the perfect accent to white, any shades of grey and blue and navy shades.
Muted orchid to refresh a small bathroom
Radiant Orchid is the Pantone Color of the Year, and it’s beautiful hue is perfect to refresh areas in your home. Try wide, vertical stripes in a little girl’s bedroom, or paint a powder room and add bright white accents. It can also add the perfect small pop a room needs, try painted vases, frames and lamps.
Light sky blue adornments
A faint sky blue is the perfect calming color to decorate several rooms in your home. Paint exposed shelves in your kitchen or replace neutral colored lamps with light sky blue lamps and white lamp shades. Drape a sky blue throw over mustard yellow chairs to add warmth and coziness in the midst of summer. Or paint the dining room this light shade of blue and add a gallery wall of floral and green prints.
