Spring and summer are approaching Northern California, and many homeowners are thinking of painting their homes. It’s a good time of year to have the interior and exterior of your home painted. 

As you consider paints for the interior and exterior of your home, you’re no doubt running through all types of color considerations. What colors do you like, and how will you find schemes that are unique yet match? 

One way to do this is to match seasonal colors. There are certain colors that have a feel which corresponds to a season. For example, rusty orange is a fall color and turquoise is a winter color. 

Probably the most popular “season” for residential painting is summer. The colors are warm, vibrant, and natural. Here are some suggestions for summer paint colors. 


This is a bold color that sings summer and is most often used as an accent. Use it places that you want to energize and brighten. 


This calm blue color has the relaxing effect of looking up at a clear blue sky on a lazy summer afternoon. This works well in home office spaces, small kitchens, and bathrooms. 


This vibrant yellow color has the quality of a sunbeam and adds a strong element of brightness to any room. Like orange, it’s most often used as an accent because it can become overwhelming, but don’t be afraid to use it in your kitchen, family room, or finished basement. Accent this color with contrasting colors like sage green or bright blue.
