Summer of Color 2016

Summer is here! Playful color is in full swing as we move into the pool parties and BBQs in the back yard, road trips, and time spent relaxing at home. It also provides more opportunities to show the hottest color for your summer designs, whether interior or exterior. Pulled from our 2016 color trends report, and supplemented with a range of supporting Perfect Palette hues, these colors confirm a range of our 2016 color trends predictions. Feel inspired this season!
