10 Ways To Give Your Bathroom Summer Style

by Kevin O'Gara

For me, summer brings a brighter color palette and a liveliness to the air with the abundance of sunshine and trees full of leaves. There’s a fresh energy to the season that translates well to interior refreshes, whether it’s moving the furniture around or planning a full redecoration. When it comes to summery bathrooms, many feature warmer palettes, like pops of yellow or sunny orange hues, or the crisp contrast of black and white that feels appropriate for the breezy summer air. One of the surest ways to achieve a year-round summer look is with a bold wallpaper choice, like the ocean wallpaper shown in slide seven or the blue palms in slide nine. From changing up your bathroom’s color palette to adding fresh decor, here are some ideas for bringing summer vibes to your powder room. —Kevin
