Summertime Blues

Bathroom painted turquoise Hirshfield's

Adirondack Chair at the lake

With our days feeling more like summer we look to a palette, reminiscent of days at the lake or vacations at the beach. The crisp yet calming group of blue gradations is both versatile and a perfect color scheme to brighten your home’s interior. With a little inspiration and a few simple steps, you too can refresh your home.

 Hirshfield's Blues


Bathroom painted turquoise Hirshfield's

Choose a neutral for an allover background in your bathroom;  the softness of Sparkling Champagne 0201 is a place to start. Layer with splashes of more saturated blue hues, such as Blue Bliss 0675 or Enchanted Evening 0673, as accent colors on a piece of furniture or your cabinets. Combine with natural, warm accessories in wood and linen for the ultimate chill-out zone.


Nursery painted blue

Marzena Dream 0637 is a calm and soft blue, making it perfect for decorating nurseries and children’s bedrooms. Opt for airy, light furniture in Sparkling Champagne 0201 and soft textiles in combinations of Brush Blue 0607 and Blue Bliss 0675 to create a cheerful and tranquil haven for your little ones.


Bedroom with turquoise accents

The aquatic blue hue’s of this month’s palette work equally well in tonal groupings and stand-alone shades. For a livelier approach, the boldness of Enchanted Evening 0673 is a great shade for accents and highlights throughout interior spaces, while the calmer Blue Bliss 0675 brings a more refined, polished look to feature walls and small alcoves.

Walking into your home should make you feel good (once you step over the pile of shoes by the back door) and if it doesn’t, then maybe it’s time for a refresh on your wall color. Where to begin?
