Summery Color Combos We Love!

Summery Color Combos We Love! @pintrest

How do you decorate? Do you choose colors emotionally or do you choose colors based on trends? Do you go with what works for your home or switch it up every six months based on a whim? Is your whole house white with pops of color? Do you have a base of grey and switch out accessories for each season? There are so many ways to go about it.

We thought we’d put together some inspiring color mixes to get your creative juices flowing! Summer feels like the perfect time to take on painting projects because you can open those windows. It also feels like the time to go for lighter accessories and clear out unneeded stuff to freshen up your space.

This soft palette is relaxing, on trend and cooling for summer. It evokes grass and pale pink peonies. It’s easy on the eyes and all those leafy plants are good for your well-being. This color combo makes home feel like an exotic getaway, especially if you use it for bathroom tiles. The bigger the leaves and more jungle-like it feels the better! Or choose velvets for the feel of a chic Parisian boutique hotel.

On trend colors are going darker this year. Cinnamon, dark rose and caviar with greyish blues are calming. A room painted in dark colors feels larger and evokes a cool cave.

Wild flowers in a field shine in this color combo. Shades of orange and rust were on catwalks for summer and evoke the feeling of your feet on sundrenched terracotta tiles. Hits of pink and grey provide a soft modern contrast to the fiery oranges.

From buttery yellows to bright sunshine yellow, some say this color is replacing Millennial pink. What says summertime more than this color combo? From sky blue to indigo, you can play with how bold you want your room to be. Paint a window or door in yellow, or choose wallpaper, art or curtains to add pops of this optimistic color combo.

Walking on the beach and finding treasures like sea glass is one of the joys of summer. If your home is a base of white or grey, swap out darker accessories and replace them with bedding, pillows and blankets in colors that remind you of your last vacation. Nothing cools us down during a heatwave like these watery pastel shades. 

Textured Blues & Greyish Greens

Cut-off jean shorts and your favorite shirt is the perfect summer BBQ look and this combo evokes that lazy vibe. Cooling sheets in simple stripes are instantly relaxing. Tropical prints and greyish greens add to this effortless look we want for the summer months where our attention moves outside.

What is it about wood that’s painted white that evokes vacation? Maybe it’s because it’s the best way to dress up all the second-hand furniture that ends up at the family cottage? Rattan, whicker and handmade details look so great against white and transport us to the beach. Try adding some burnt rust or pale pinks if you can’t live without some color.

 

Ultra-Violet & Turquoise or Yellow

Ultra-violet was the color of the year and is so relaxing for a bedroom. Shades of purple for a monochromatic palette are beautiful or add grey for a modern take. Pops of yellow make a bold choice or add turquoise with a boho hand-woven rug. Ombre your wall to add depth and to draw the eye upwards.

Bold Pink & Bright Turquoise

This combo may be too Miami for some but you can’t argue that it isn’t fun! From a hot pink Notting Hill front door to an exotic hotel bedroom; this combo is not for the mild at heart. Tone down the fuchsia with pops of coral or a softer pink. Think ice-cream and sorbet colors.

Pink & Grey & Gold

Pink is officially for adults and is gender neutral. Mix it with grey and gold. Cabinets can be painted, winter bedding updated or chairs reupholstered. From casual to sophisticated, this color combo is playfully modern. Add a muted ultra-violet for extra depth.

Navy Blue & Gold

There is something about this color that feels like a secret. The color of a cold oceans and starlit skies, it’s perfect for a room where you seek a sense of privacy. Touches of gold accessories or leather furniture create a sophisticated speakeasy feel. Tile or paint a wall. If you don’t want to commit, just hang a large-scale painting. (DIY anyone?) Kitchen cabinets in navy blue are a brighter take on the classic French bistro black kitchen cabinets. This color can be treated as a neutral so add pops of yellow, pink or turquoise.

Apricot & Mint & Graphic Prints

This is a much softer take on the fuchsia and bright turquoise. The pink has more orange in it than the ballet pinks with leafy greens. This has almost an 80’s feel because it’s mixed with gold and graphic black and white prints. It feels new mixed with sage green or turquoise. Try painting your wall burnt apricot and the trimmings in sea glass or just add an accent pillow. This combo also works for those of you who favor colorful but Scandinavian decor.

No matter what palette you choose, it can be personalized based on your style and budget. And if you really can’t pick one, throw all your favorite colors together and make your own combo. After all, these days, everything goes, and everything is available, so go for it!

Will you be putting away winter accessories and swapping them out for summer colors?

And psst…What’s your favorite color combo?
