Deciding which paint color to use on a piece of furniture isn't something that you should be losing sleep over. Still, it can be challenging to decide, and until you pick a color you can't get started. So we thought we'd create a list of popular colors for summer to make picking a paint color for your furniture project a breeze.

With this list of bright and happy summertime colors, choosing a color for your next project should be a piece of cake! 

Color pick #1 – Sunset Glow

Sunset Glow is a warm, coral pink. Imagine that beautiful orange-pink sky just as the sun meets the horizon; that’s exactly what this color was made to resemble. This distinct salmon color can be added to any piece for a fun splash of color, or try pairing it with wood accents for a more rustic feel.

Color pick #2 – Persimmon

Persimmon is the perfect, bold, citrus orange. It’s an eye-catching color that makes us think of a refreshing glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. We think you’ll love how this color pops and instantly makes you think of summer. Try it with Yellow Wellies and Sunset Glow for an ombre sunset look.

Color pick #3 – Whoop-de-do

Whoop-de-do is a vibrant peacock teal color. It’s similar to Tropical Cocktail, but much deeper. I’m sure that this happy, bright teal will make you want to jump for joy!

Color pick #4 – Poppy

Poppy is a radiant, bold red. Inspired by fields of poppy flowers, this is the brightest and boldest red in our collection. It radiates a strong and powerful energy and looks lovely next to more neutral colors, such as Lazy Linen.

Color pick #5 – Raspberry Sorbet

Raspberry Sorbet was inspired by a scoop of raspberry sorbet on a hot summer day. It is a striking, deep pink with a sweet, modern feel. 

Color pick #6 – Fresh Mustard

Fresh Mustard is a bold, retro, mustard yellow that compliments mid century modern furniture fittingly. Fresh Mustard pairs excellently with Wanderess and Starstruck, for example. If you’re looking for a happy color, this is one to try.

Color pick #7 – Yellow Wellies

Yellow Wellies is the perfect, sunflower yellow. Lighter and brighter than Fresh Mustard, this color is the ideal lemony yellow to brighten up a room. 

Color pick #8 – Bling Bling

Bling Bling is an electric, vivid blue like cobalt or ultramarine. It’s not quite a primary blue. It looks great on mid century pieces or antiques for a bohemian feel. 

Color pick #9 – Secret Garden

Secret Garden is a rich, leafy green, with subtle yellow undertones. This vibrant color reminds us of a freshly trimmed hedge or a lush garden full of greenery. Pair it with gold hardware for a mid century modern look, or try adding our Antiquing Wax for an aged look.

Color pick #10 – Tropical Cocktail

Tropical Cocktail is our truest turquoise color. It’s a bright, bold turquoise blue that will turn any furniture into an eye-catching statement piece. Kick your sandals off and dig your toes in the sand while you enjoy this happy, summery color.
