Color Trends: Summer Blues

Classic blue is a staple for interior design. From Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams, and Behr paint colors to Sunbrella fabrics, blue hues are trending this summer. 
Style Notes 

Whether it’s your living room or outdoor space, choosing blue as a grounding base color for your color palette is one of the top design trends of 2021. Take inspiration from nature and mix earthy tones like terracotta and aqua for a pop of positivity in your living spaces! Blue-green and light blue hues can also evoke a sense of wellness derived from the natural world.

Pattern Pairings 

Take a tour of the color wheel and choose bold colors with illuminating undertones to stay on top of the latest interior trends! From teal to Aegean, pastel to matte blue-grey, blues are the right color to stay trendy and classic all at once. Check out these color combinations to get inspired: 



Equal Ink looks especially classic when used as an accent to Textil Navy. 



Go beachy boho with the bold, colorful combination of Midori Indigo with Blend Indigo.



Why have one statement piece when you can have two? Pair Array Calypso with Platform Electric for bright style. 



Resonate Atlas and Expand Calypso are both grounded with a cool grey to allow for the bolder blues and teals to pop.
