As these hot summer days roll in, you may be wanting to brighten things up around the house or even cool things down when it comes to your decor. These three colors are great options that are very on trend for this season.

Marsala is Pantone’s color of the year for 2015. This deep wine color is a fantastic option to use throughout your home this summer. Colors that pair well with this hue include soft blues and crisp whites. It is good to keep a deep, rich color like this one, balanced with lighter more airy tones. Below are some examples of great uses of this fantastic color in the home.

Lucite Green

Lucite green is another one of Pantone’s top picks for 2015. This hue is a soft green that is almost a mint green, but with a little less blue. This is a fantastic color to use in your home this summer because it is a very tranquil and calming color that pairs well with many other shades. Lucite green pairs beautifully with blues, especially in the aqua/turquoise family. It also looks great with bright, saturated accent colors like the fuchsia used in one of the photos shown below.

Bold Blue

Bold blues are great choices to go with to refresh your home’s d├ęcor this summer. This is a dynamic color that can take your home in a number of different directions depending on what you pair it with. If you are looking to really make an impact, you can pair it with another bold and saturated color like tangerine, which is its color complement. If you would rather make the bold blue be the biggest impact itself, pair it with more muted neutrals like soft gray or ivory and then include small accents in a complementary hue.
