MELTING FOR MARIGOLD
SUMMER’S NEW FAVORITE COLOR
SUMMER HAS FINALLY ARRIVED

Summer has finally arrived, which means sunshine and happy vibes all around. The days are getting warmer with each passing week, but the temperature is not the only thing on the rise. Certain colors really climb to the top of the popularity scale this time of year, mostly due to their warm energy and irresistible charm. One such color is known as “Marigold”, a gorgeous blend of yellow, orange, and gold. As you’ve probably already guessed, this color originates from the popular flower that starts to bloom in early Summer. In this article, we explore why this color is all the rage in the interior design world, and how to use its golden power to really make a room shine.

 

Complement with browns and creams.

If you’re looking for a neutral pallete with a little warmth, try using Marigold as a wall paint color and surrounding it with various brown and cream neutrals to really set it off. These color combinations look fantastic together, and make any space look irresistibly inviting.

Bonus Tip: Most any wood or wrought iron material looks great with Marigold, so this is great opportunity to experiment with different materials and textures in your décor.

Blue is the perfect accent color to Marigold.







Blue and orange are complementary colors on the color wheel, so the orange undertones in Marigold pair perfectly with rich shades of blue. If balanced correctly, these bold hues make a room look so crisp and stylish, someone may think it jumped right off the page of a magazine.
