Without fail, after the temperature starts to rise, so does my penchant for colour. I love just adding a few bold, saturated pieces into a room for an instantaneous breath of clean air and summer touch. There are not many rules when it comes to colour — first and foremost find a few hues that go you, sprinkle in some complementary colors and let delight abound! — Kelly from Recycled Produced


Pieni Unikko Pillow Sham – $35

When I think of bold blooms and vivid hues, Finnish design home Marimekko is the first brand that comes to mind. An updated neon choose a classic design, this pillow will surely fit the bill for spring.

Schoolhouse Electric

Schoolhouse Electric Clock, Industrial Yellow – $275

This classic reproduction clock is modernized by the glowing yellow rim. Who doesn’t remember watching that red hand count down the seconds until school was out? I really like the large graphic numbers. Even though this is a classic clock, it seems really contemporary and refreshing, with a storied background.

Layla Grayce

Jamie Young Lighting Lamp Shade Washed Coral Drum Small – $104

Drum colors look great covered in almost any print, but this stunner at a glowing coral with batik floral print is really a beauty.


Suite One Studio Pastel Sorbet Cup Set – $78

These luscious pastel cups can be used for so many things, like ice cream, nuts, candies — the list goes on. I do know 1 thing, however, I’d make sure anything I stored inside didn’t conceal the pretty pastel hues.


Mixed Berries Old Fashioned Teaspoon Set – $35

All these vibrantly-hued acrylic strands are just really fun. They will spice up even the most “vanilla” of ice cream tastes, and are gorgeous to check at. These glowing, hot colours remind me of summer just around the corner.

Putting Fire From Kathranne Knight – $24

I am in love with all the abstract nature of this sunset photo, and the deliciously rich and lively coloring. The light yellow is indeed complementary to the fiery deep pink and darkened purples. It’s the perfect print to hang in a drab hallway in need of some life.

Design Public

Flowie Bouquet Cocktail Napkins – $28

Both the print and colour combinations of these cocktail napkins are attractive. The angular roses and strong piping lends a contemporary, funky advantage to a blossom print which can occasionally come across as stuffy or overdone.

Serena & Lily

Herringbone Throw – $250

Which of these gorgeous shades to choose? I’d really like to envelop myself in almost any one of these beautiful throws. Simply because the mercury rises, doesn’t mean that you won’t need to pay up on a lively summer night or fight the chill of an air conditioner.

Shanna Murray

You are Tops Tiding Decals – $20

Beloved decal queen Shanna Murray just updated her shop with new colours and designs for spring and summer. I’ve a few sprinkled throughout my house in gold and charcoal, but the brand new Neon Pink, Matte Fog and Mint are giving me a serious crush.

Scandinavian Made

Alvesta Rug – $450

This handwoven Scandinavian rug boasts such vibrant pinks and aquas. Sized as a runner, this could be great to brighten up a hallway or section a space.

Ferm Living Shop

Spear Bowl – $80

Granted, I could probably close my eyes and click on and end up with something I loved from Ferm Living’s site, but there is something about this exceptional mix of colours and the humble triangle that elevates this bowl into new heights. And of course, the dimensions and shape are likely among the most useful you’ll find.

Scandinavian Made

Serving Plate Medium – $115

These fairly porcelain serving dishes have a delicate, crackled glaze that lends such an ethereal quality. They also don’t quite sit and the motion that they exude to the dinner table gives a real feeling of natural fluidity.

Layla Grayce

Thomas Paul Reversible Banner Violet Cotton Pillow – $70

I am loving the colour mixture of lavender and coral onto this reversible pillow. Graphic prints and bold colours are surefire ways to welcome in the hot weather.

Jonathan Adler

Green And Natural Dog Bowl, Large – $78

Even Fido can usher in spring and summer for this elegant bowl. I’d sure be tempted to fill it with a few lemons and limes and call it a centerpiece.

purl soho

Tiny Forest Fabric By Kobayashi – $30

Can not locate off-the-shelf fabrics that fit your fancy? Get a yard or two of fabric and whip up you’re own, or find a seamstress to provide you a hand. This fabric only screams spring, with its vivid blooms and grassy background. I could see a few pillows, with the opposite side a glowing chartreuse, or a few super adventuresome and fun placemats.

Panik Design

Vipp – Vipp 15 Copenhagen Green Pedal Bin – GBP 235

Wow, what a statement a trashcan will create! This mint color is hot right now, and sure to make you smile each time you press on the smooth-as-butter pedal.


Quarter Color Curtain – $98

Color blocking? Check! Coral? Check! Cover your windows with these rich and stunning curtains. They are so contemporary, so new and so summer.


Opinel Knife Set – $88

How fun would it be to peel off your apple and filet your fish with these colorful knives? The interesting palette of vibrant hues will capture and delight your attention.

Bold & Noble

Ginkgo at Yellow Moss Print – GBP 43

This simple print in a bold shade gives the eye a peaceful spot to rest. Something about the circular wreath shape is calming and elegant.


Paule Marrot Pink Maze Artwork – $1,400

The simple white on pink colour and whimsical design could be a terrific addition to add some charm and drama to a room. This bit has a young feel, without appearing juvenile.
