Summer DIY Renovations: 3 Chic Colors for the Season

  Springtime evokes the thoughts of flowers, gentle rains, the buzzing of bees and warm weather.  The popular color palette that goes along with this time of year is along the same lines.
  1. Blush Pink: This beautiful hue brings to mind soft peony petals and blooming spring florals.  This shade is lovely to use in your style as well as your decor.  It’s bright and happy color shows hints of the bright summer colors to come without going full on neon or baby pink.  Light colors not really for you?  Try a dusty rose instead.  This color compliments almost any skin tone and in your decor, it can even be used into fall with the right burgundy.  Two birds, one stone!
  1. Steel Blue: This shade of blue evokes thoughts of cool spring rain storms.  Blue is a calming color but this hue, in particular, makes one imagine curling up with a good book and smelling the fresh rainfall.  Try this color with accessories both on yourself and in your home.  A steel blue purse is a great pop of color in your wardrobe and will carry you through the summer.  As for decor, you could always use throw pillows, runners, placemats or a vase.  Want something steel blue to be a little more permanent in your home?  Try a lamp, throw rug or even an accent wall or door.
  1. Yellow: Yellow is undoubtedly the staple color of every spring season, bringing thoughts of the sunshine and warm summer days to come.  Almost any shade of yellow can brighten up your interior, exterior and wardrobe alike.  Not willing to commit to this color?  In your wardrobe, try a pair of lemon colored sandals or heels.  Outside, try a yellow Adirondack chair or weather-resistant throw pillows for your outdoor furniture.  In your home, try a tablecloth or a new quilt, duvet or comforter.  Nothing freshens up a bedroom like a new bedding!
