The colors of summer are as beautiful a mix of bold and pastel hues as the season itself. As juicy and refreshing as the fruit, this pale sherbet hue brings life to any room. Walls have gone from navy’s deep blue to denim — the color of the perfect pair of old jeans. Jade green is a quieter version of the jeweled emerald tones we’ve seen the last few years.
This grayed-down green makes a quiet backdrop for a bedroom when paired with charcoal and white. Teal, the color of deep ocean waters, brings a sense of cool on even the hottest days.
This versatile hue warms any room and can go from traditional to Bohemian by its accent colors and furnishings. This bold, memorable red paint color enlivens a room (and your appetite — go easy using this in kitchens), giving it a look that’s both traditional and energetic.
While we’ve all seen (and painted) our share of greige and gray walls, this year, the color is slightly off-center.
So pair it with lots of white and an equally pale gray to make sure this pretty shade doesn’t get lost.
