Summer Reset: Colors and Ideas to Refresh Your Home

July 1, 2016 1:07 am


Summer’s here, and with it comes the desire to embrace the season through the décor in our homes.

“This time of year offers an opportunity to create your perfect summer oasis by bringing sunny shades from the outdoors into your home,” says Nathan Fischer, design expert with Ace Hardware. “Use the time and creativity summer offers to experiment with fun, colorful hues and tackle new projects to give your home a much-needed refresh.”

Fischer, along with fellow Ace design experts Katie Reynolds and Julie Richard, list these summer colors to try:

• Red is having a moment! Pair deep reds with frosty neutrals—the combination will make a big impact in any room. Mix in red as an accent table or planter.

Beachy blues never seem to go out of style. Use them in bathrooms, bedrooms or on woodwork for a year-round dose of summer.

• Bright shades of creamy orange and punchy purple will bring your home to life. Use cheery-colored accessories in frequently-used spaces, such as the family room or office.

To take these on-trend colors to the next level, incorporate these five elements, says Fischer, Reynolds and Richard:

• Layered Design
• Organizational Storage
• Room-to-Room Cohesion
• Statement Pieces
• Warm-and-Cool Juxtaposition

How will you embrace summer in your home?
