The Best Colors to Refresh Your Home

If you want to leave all the monotonous color behind and add vibrance to your home, summer is the best time to do it. You don’t need to make significant changes to bring the summer spirit into your home. A few simple decorative touches in bright colors will do the trick. In this post, we feature a selection of stylish colors that will really refresh your home!

Orange

Orange is a dynamic color that injects a dose of energy into a space. Painting the entry door orange is an excellent way to spruce up the curb appeal for summer. Or, opt for a bold area rug to anchor the living room setting. However, it is better to be careful with implementing this energizing color. You will probably want to avoid it in the bedroom because it can disrupt the serene atmosphere.

Coral

Coral is a charming color, reminiscent of summer and the sea. Reupholstering your headboard in a coral hue will add a pop of color to the bedroom. Navy is the best match for this bright color, creating a vivid ambiance with a coastal vibe.

Cobalt blue

Vibrant enough to fit the summer spirit, cobalt blue is one of the most popular color choices for the season. If you don’t feel confident enough to play with color, start with small steps. Enhance your outdoor seating area with fluffy throws in this gorgeous blue hue. Once you grasp the use of this color, you can explore all the different options. For example, a peel and stick backsplash in cobalt blue will make a bright statement in the kitchen.

Yellow

Yellow is a perfect accent color to make neutral furnishings stand out. This vivid armchair contributes to the summer vibe and serves as the main attention grabber in the living room. For a gorgeous pop of color, pair with contrasting blue.

Light gray

This versatile color choice can fit in a wide range of styles and can be paired with warm colors for a pleasing visual touch. If you don’t feel like experimenting with cold colors, light gray is an ideal choice for you. Painting your walls in light gray will make your home feel renewed.

Sky blue

Sky blue is a lovely bright color that feels calm and soothing. Therefore, it would make an excellent choice for creating a focal point in your bedroom. We love how they managed to evenly distribute the color with the painted closet doors and cozy throws.

Lime green

Try adding some lime accents to a space when the neutral furniture doesn’t fit the summer spirit. The lime area rug anchors the cozy seating area, making it feel more intimate. For a balanced look, add artwork and throw rugs in the same color.

Navy

Navy is a popular color choice for the summer, bringing a marine vibe to your home. And let’s not forget that it is a moody neutral that is flexible enough to fit many different color schemes. The navy accent wall makes a bold statement, helping the white dining table stand out.
