When it comes to summer colors, vibrant tones like pinks and yellows are married with cool blues and serene green palettes that provide a bright yet relaxing feel. So it’s no surprise that one of the most popular colors this season is Pantone’s Island Paradise.  This bright, cool aqua reminds us of the ideal island getaway and is the perfect summer addition to any home.

The beauty of this color is that even if you don’t get to escape to your own private oasis, Island Paradise can bring a little summertime bliss into your home!
