Don’t Kiss Summer’s Bright Colors Goodbye Yet

With autumn on the near horizon, it’s tempting to reposition your for-sale home to fit the season. But, don’t change out your home’s sunny-colored summer pillows, florals and accessories yet! We suggest that you hang on to those cool summer colors just a little longer. In the meantime, we have a few tips for your home’s seasonal hues.

Not sure what the differences between fall and summer colors are? Let’s take a close look. Real Simple magazine provides a thorough color collection on their website. Strategic splashes of vivid fuchsia in the dining room or den can create a romantic and memorable look. Or, perhaps your home has a cooler lime color that offers your home a more energetic and refreshing feel. Fresh blue paints and captivating coral hues are also great choices for you to maintain in your home this summer. Keep your summer colors lively and cheerful for a refreshing appearance.

We also suggest that you accessorize with bright fruits in your kitchen. Position a fruit bowl on your countertops, full of big oranges, grapefruits and juicy apples. The delicious smell of these snacks will tickle your buyers’ senses while they’re simultaneously attracted to the space, visually.

As you transition your home to fit fall’s changing colors, we love using orange! This punchy hue is a favorite for post-summer interiors, altering your home to match nature’s shifting appearance. Grace your spaces with warm touches of tangerine, gold and red. Or, boldly combine shades from across the color wheel by incorporating blue tones.

By integrating orange accent colors into your home’s autumn interiors, prospective buyers will love how the warmer colors make them feel more comfortable in a cooling-down climate. But, timing is everything, so collect your orange accessories, florals, accent pillows and drapes now, so you’re ready to redecorate when summer comes to a close.
