Red

You can’t think of summer without picturing juicy red watermelons and delicious candy apples. Red is a powerful color that really packs a punch.

Pick a room that is small but has good natural light. Red sparks productivity, passion, and appetite. A home office, bedroom or dining room would be excellent candidates for this summer color.

When you go to Benjamin Moore to make your selection, stay away from primary red. You want a red that is more complicated because it draws the eyes. Read about choosing the best paint for your project.

All Shades of Greens

Green is a quintessential color of summer that is perfect for your summer paints. It makes you think of lying in the grass looking at clouds or running through the sprinkler to cool off.
