Bright and Juicy

Let’s face it — summer is upon us! If you haven’t already done so, it’s time to swap out the heavy wool and cozy flannel and swap in airy, woven cottons and lightweight, open knits. Oh, and don’t forget about color! Summertime is all about bold, bright color… you know, the hues that feel mouthwateringly juicy, almost as though they were literally squeezed from fresh fruits. Think vibrant fuchsia, saturated tangerine, sunshine yellow, grass green, even bright cerulean blue. Because these colors are so saturated, so rich in tone, might I suggest a pared down look? Keep the color palette simple, yet punchy, while letting your look’s silhouette do the talking. Feelin’ brave? Try a tonal look that still packs a punch by layering pieces all within the same color family.

This is also a look for the brave when it comes to home interiors. Not for the faint of heart, a bright and bold rug can add character and style to most any room. Juicy brights can fit into any room: from master bedroom to a cozy kitchen, we love the way these rugs can perk up a space. As with fashion, easy does it when designing your space around a juicy-hued rug. We suggest keeping accessories, artwork, and even wall color toned down. A great reference is the taupe-y base color paired with bold raspberry sorbet on this Surya Abigail rug. With a floor grounded in juicy brights, an optic white sofa and gilded accents simply pop.
