If you are making plans for the summer, fixing up your home can help. These are the paint colors that will keep it cool and breezy no matter how hot it gets outside your doors.
Minty green is one of those colors that says summer is on the horizon. Taking inspiration from the herb of the same name, mint green is about making the best of nature. This is one color that can come in several types of hues. Bring in a bit of white to make it ideal for summer. You can use this one as the base color on your walls and bedding. It also goes well when it comes to bringing in the kind of accessories that invite people to come on over for a tea party in the middle of the afternoon. This color pairs well with many other colors. Use it with a deep shade of rose to bring out the slightly darker tones in the hue and pull it together.
Pearl grey is grey with a bit of white to it. This is a good color for the siding in your home.

This color allows your home to blend in well with other colors on your lot. It’s the color of early, dewy mornings with a cup of coffee in hand as you wait for the rest of the day. Use grey to bring in a background that sets the tone for the other colors you want to use. It will make any other color in your home pop more vividly. Use it with a brighter summer color such as navy blue or a rich, earthy brown.
