5 Fresh Paint Trends for Summer

From on June 15, 2010 in Painting

If you’ve already freshened up your summer wardrobe, it’s only fair that your home get the same star treatment. Revamp your digs with these fabulously loud paint colors so your surroundings can be just as stylish as you are.

#1 – Fuscia Bright

Yes, I know that not everyone appreciates the color pink as much as I do, but the “Fuchsia Bright” shade from Pratt and Lambert makes every inch of this bathroom pop. No extra decorating needed here.

#2 – Cook’s Blue

While this family chose Farrow and Ball’s “Cook’s Blue” paint to bring out the color in that great collection of plates shown above, this shade could lend a moonlight glow to any design scheme. Bold? Yes. Necessary? Absolutely.

#3 – Gem Turquoise

Unusual colors tend to be hard to match, but this space shows that sometimes matching isn’t always the goal. Use Behr’s Gem Turquoise paint to achieve a similar look.

#4 – Vintage Yellow

Yellow, while overbearing in large doses, works incredibly well to break up this breakfast nook. Try Gliddean’s Vintage Yellow paint to make your room bright and cheery.

#5 – Coral Glow

Think bold colors should be avoided in small spaces? Think again, my friends. After a few coats of Benjamin Moore’s Coral Glow, these cramped quarters really spring to life.

While summer may be fleeting, a few bold colors can keep your home bright all year long. Go for it. You both deserve a makeover.
