Red-orange, sunny yellow, sage and natural shades of green and rich blues are our favorite colors this summer. The cheerful and traditional looks of these colors mimics the good mood summertime puts us in and offers the most complementary style in our country homes.
Whether you’re decorating with poppies, sunflowers, ferns or decorative grasses, real or faux, make sure to look for the most natural, or closest-to-the-real-thing colors in your fresh picked bouquets and permanent arrangements.
If you prefer to change out colors for each season, area rugs should be your go-to home accents. Braided rugs are a timeless favorite, and you can go bold with a bright solid color or be a little more subtle, yet bold, with a multi colored rug that pulls complementary colors into the threads and spreads them across the floors of your home.
Our Ombre Stripes Wool Rugs also offer color combinations, and Sage adds the perfect combination of greens and yellows to your home for summer.
Another example of beautiful summer greens is seen in our Fern Garden Collection, which can decorate just about any room.
The softness of the green hues add color to your bedroom, tabletops and dining spaces without looking too heavy; think airy and light as ideal green shades for this time of year.
Our final favorite color for summer is one that we truly love any time of year: blue. Navy blue and aqua are on opposite ends of the blue spectrum, but are equally beautiful when adorning your home in summer decor. Aqua caters to coastal and beach decor, while darker blues enhance country charm and will complement wood furniture and cheerful paint colors no matter what the style of the room is.
So bring out your rugs, centerpiece accents and floral decor in all of these colors for a bright and beautifully decorated summer! And share with us how you’re accenting your year round pieces with summer decor and what colors you’re trying this season. Happy styling!
