In my second installment of the Colors for Summer Decorating series, we will focus on scorching hot red decor. (We previously talked about yellow decor for summer.) It is so easy to incorporate bold summer reds into your seasonal decor routine, either in lighting, accessories or colorful outdoor furniture. A pop of red is sure to inspire a sizzling backyard fiesta!
As patriotic and American as apple pie, red decor accents signify those long hot days of summer. Unlike sweet, cheerful yellow, mixing in bright, bold reds for the summer adds a 'wow' factor. Whether planning one party or accessorizing for the entire season, mixing in red patio furniture, serving trays, potted plants and accent lighting brings a fun, festive feel to any space. Check out how to incorporate bold red lighting, furniture and accessories in your home below - and don't forget an outdoor ceiling fan to keep cool.
