Summer is the perfect time to forgo daydreams about faraway wonders and instead find the natural beauty that exists just outside your door. Pack up the car, the cooler and whatever else you need to get the wheels rolling on your next big adventure.
Don’t be afraid to step (or drive) off the beaten path and let your inner designer be inspired by untouched gems waiting to be found.

As we dive into this summer season, we’ve hand selected a mix of colors that are bound to have you dreaming of the road less travelled. From shades of earthy green that freshen up your space to dreamy blues reminiscent of the perfect cloudless summer day, this color palette will bring the beauty of untouched natural charm into your home with ease.
Allow the colors of The Road Less Travelled to inspire your interiors by including pops of green and blue in your design. Consider using furniture, like chairs or tables combined with flooring like tile and rugs, to include these summer hues without having to do any major renovations. Or, if you’re feeling particularly bold, go all out with a newly painted color accent wall.
