Fourth of July is right around the corner. While we have our eyes on color trends year-round, this summer holiday calls for striking colorful accents. Explore our close-to-effortless ways to incorporate the season’s three colors in your home or office.

With a strong, eye-catching hue like red, small-scale accents go a long way in making a design statement. ‘Less is more.’ Throw a few toned-down red pillows on the couch or a bright piece of art in the entryway. Red’s rich tones also invite the opportunity to bring organic elements, like flowers, indoors — one of Vern Yip’s design tips for the home.

A classic neutral, white has stood the test of time as an all-over design element in luxe kitchens and baths. Allow shape to tell the story with a timeless backsplash, or consider a statement-making free-standing bathtub or neutral candles on a coffee table.

Blues surface in a myriad of tones — from coastal aqua and turquoise to modern, matte navy. Through tasteful use, blue can bring a sense of lightness in a glass accent piece or ground a space with an impactful pattern.
