Color of the Month: Lemon Burst
by Diana Olvera
August is the summer month of clear blue skies and and radiant sunshine, which is why we are featuring a soft, sunny yellow for the color of the month. Lemon Burst T17-20 is the spirit of sunbeams, citrus and happiness; it’s the color that captures a perfect summer day. This bold, happy hue adds a splash of sunshine to the design of any room, any time of year.
Inside the home, Lemon Burst makes any space feel a bit more lively. Paint the walls of a reading nook, kitchen or bedroom to make the space feel open and bright, even on the cloudiest day. Balance this bold wall color with white trim and white or neutral upholstery fabrics, paired with hints of navy or cobalt blue.
Lemon Burst accents will add energy to an all-white space. Framed artwork featuring hints of bright yellow, a sunny console table, throw pillows or a bright ceramic vase are all ways enhance a room with Lemon Burst without using it as a wall color.
Add several splashes of this energetic shade around the room to create a cohesive look that is both exciting and inviting without overwhelming the senses.
Surprisingly versatile, lemon burst pairs well with neutrals, pastels and even dark tones. It’s a ray of sunlight that unites warm, neutral and cool shades. Mix a series of throw pillows in shades of Lemon Burst, pastel blue and red tones atop a gray sofa to experience the full glory of this amazing hue.
