Summer Lemon

Nothing says summer like yellow. Lemon is our pick for the trend of the summer for 2019. Evoking the color of the sun, incorporating lemon into your kitchen is one of the easiest ways to brighten up your home. Lemon imagery and scents is one of our favorite ways to add some citrus zest to the kitchen. Dish soap and candles are a great way to infuse your kitchen with the scents of summertime.

Also, get creative with incorporating lemon into your home! Lemon yellow makes a great choice for specialty cookware, dish towels, or even a seasonal wall color change.

All About Fresh Fruit

Embrace the bounty of summertime fruits by keeping the kitchen full of your favorites. Watermelon, pineapple, strawberries, the list goes on. We love keeping summer treats featuring tasty fruit (think homemade popsicles or a cake piled high with strawberries) on hand all season long. Alternatively, set out a water dispenser and throw in cut up fruit for some DIY flavored water on deck throughout those hot summer afternoons.

Summer is the perfect time to give your kitchen a boost of energy. Switching out your décor for colorful, lively images and colors make for the perfect backdrop for long fun-filled days in the sun or entertaining summer party guests.
