Summer style at home

The summer season is here and in full effect, which means it’s high time we changed up our interiors to reflect the season. This means putting away those drab colors and embracing hues that make us feel full of life.

When thinking about the home and summery colors, there are some that just get the job done — and others that can turn our interiors into seasonal retreats. If you are still looking for that perfect hue, here are three hot shades for you to try out in your home.


Everyone needs a little citrus in their life, and lime will definitely introduce pizzazz to your palette. It may be in the cool family, but boy, does it pack its own punch. Use it against white for a crisp contrast or together with other fun hues for an electric mix.

Keeping with the citrus trend, one color you can count on to heat things up (in a fun way) during summer is tangerine. Once chosen as a Pantone Color of the Year, tangerine has the excitement of a warm hue without going overboard. Use this color throughout your home to keep things vibrant.
