Nothing says SUMMER like sinking your teeth into a juicy melon on a hot day. Watermelon, honeydew, and cantaloupe, bring flavor and a splash of color to a summer table. See how to take these fresh and light colors from your table to your walls and bring a little pop of summer into your space year round.
Like a ripe slice of cantaloupe, SPROUT .02 is a fresh Melon Hue that just feels good. Orange is a happy hue that evokes excitement and stimulates the brain. This soft shade of orange will brighten a space without being overpowering.
LEAF .07 is a restful, cool hue that can expand a room and make it feel larger. This honeydew hue works well in bedrooms, offices and creative spaces. It’s light but colorful and feels refreshing and cool on a hot summer day.
Watermelon is our favorite summer fruit of all and CLAY .07 captures the essence of watermelon without being too pink. It makes a great gathering space hue and adds romance to a bedroom.
When the temperatures rise, one of our favorite ways to cool down is with a refreshing and delicious Watermelon Cooler. Pure YUM! ?
