2017 Summer Color Trends

You probably have experienced it. So many color choices that you are paralyzed from making the best decision, or any decision. Choice fatigue can overwhelm and crush creative inspiration. Summer is a great time for connecting with the outdoors, finding inspiring colors and combinations for the trickiest home project. Mother Nature gets it right. Nature’s color combinations and textures are beautifully unique and unexpected. Finding color can be as easy as a nature walk or an afternoon in the garden. Nature perfectly pairs light with dark colors and soft flowers against weathered wood and stone. Unplug from technology and see if it sharpens your color instincts in your search for livable, down-to-earth color.

Our Summer Report shows a shift to warmer neutrals including browns, golds and yellows that offer an alternative to popular greys. Green continues to influence, including deep forest green, an accent that wraps its arms around you and creates a comfortable space. Small pops of bright color, reminiscent of the ‘80’s bring life to basic neutral palettes. Deep berry accents along with oranges and reds add a fun factor to interior spaces.

We hope you find inspiration in our 2017 Summer Color Report. Stop by your neighborhood Diamond Vogel for samples of these great colors. We've included a coupon at the end of this post for a free color sampler.
