When summer comes around, the weather and the colours start to change. Things get brighter, bolder, and start to relax.

So, where do you start when it comes to interior design and painting in the summer? The tones and shades you are most likely to come across when the weather starts to get better are blues, yellows and oranges but what other colour palettes can add summery touches to your home.

Neutral Tones

Summer is all about rest and rejuvenation. It’s always good to have somewhere calm and relaxing to return to. The home trends for summer 2021 really bring you back down to Earth, with neutrals such as beige, cream, off white and terracotta being sought after shades.

These brown and off-white blends are great summer choices as they resemble nature and bring calm and warmth into your home. If you don’t have any natural furnishings or touches in your interior design, a really easy way to incorporate it is to choose comforting browns or beiges as a paint colour.

However, it’s also an excellent idea to consider embellishing your home with natural furnishings too. You should also think carefully about the shapes in your home – go for ergonomics and softness, from shape to texture and back again. Painting and decorating services can help you finalise that look!


Shades of Blue

Blue remains one of the most welcoming colours of all time. Blue is soft, gentle and summery like the ocean. It is also a very versatile and complementary colour; you can pair a deep intense blue with a simple white for a feel of sophistication. Also, you can use neutral greys alongside to add to a renewed colour scheme.

However, you don’t have to go full force with the blue. Several shades of colour work well with warm accents and touches, therefore you don’t have to rely on it as a lone option. As a matter of fact, contrasting cool blues with warm touches is an excellent idea if you want to highlight your interior design. Blue is super versatile and can be contemporary (a bright and bold arctic blue) or classic ( a soft and subtle pastel), but it will always be an ideal choice for the summer.


Bold Colour

Summer is a time when we all look forward to a change in the weather and a change in pace. When things are bright and bold it can bring new life to what could seem dull. Some of the best home trends right now revolve around a retro influence, which includes bright and bold colour palettes.

Creating an upbeat, complimentary pair of colours can add more personality to your interiors. For example, you may consider using pink with yellow and touches of orange, to create a bright and cheerful room you’ll love coming home to.
