From vibrant shades to warm pastels, one can oscillate between the two extremes and yet look on point in summer, say experts.

Radhika Singhal, Expert at FabAlley, Matteo Lambert, Collection and Design Head, Bata India Limited, and Ritika Taneja, Senior Director- Categories, ShopClues, list colour trends for summer.

* Coral: Add a pop of coral to wash away the summer heat by bringing in a light playfulness to your wardrobe. Whether it is a dress or a shirt, coral will add that zing to your overall look.

* Mint: The cool hue will help you showcase your unique personality. Mint green is the new go-to colour, so bring the spotlight on your individuality through this beautiful colour. A short skirt in this hue for a Friday outing or a simple cotton kurta with a neutral coloured bottom for a regular day at college or work will look classic.

* Pink: Crank up the heat with a soft millennial pink hue this summer. Flirty, feminine and fabulous, this palette always pops and makes you look vibrant.

You may not be able to escape the sweltering heat when you are outside, but you can make your home a cool haven by playing around with colors and adding greenery to your walls, suggest experts.

A color palette, when used well, can help in creating a naturally refreshing environment at home.

Peeyush Bachlaus, Head of Marketing at Kansai Nerolac Paints Ltd, suggests four decor trends, in hues that range from cool blues and soothing greens to mellow yellows:

* For a blissful green escape: Surround yourself with the colors of a secret garden, leaving everything else a pristine white. The color green is well-associated with nature, allowing a room to feel relaxing to the eyes and refreshing for your mind. When paired with white, this palette can turn a bland room into a welcoming paradise. Green is also one of the easiest colors to adorn your interiors as pairing various shades of green with just about any other color can work beautifully.

* For a breezy haven: Large plants and strong colors are natural decor accents that bring lushness into one’s home. This summer, transform your interiors into a cool breezy tropical paradise with the help of verdant aquatic colors with a cheerful palette of cool blues, mellow yellows, bright oranges and lush greens. These colors will make sure that your time home is a breeze and you feel the freshness of an aquatic theme.

* For an eccentric summer makeover: Given our busy lifestyles and the sweltering heat to add to it, we all need an escape. Let your home be that much needed exotic escape by curating one area in your home. Mix and match cool blue and violet walls fearlessly, framing it with crisp white accents. Natural materials and details make this a room for all to enjoy. Colors such as blues and whites are cool colors as they help keep our mind cool and relaxed even during the sweltering heat of the summers.

* For a refreshing classic look: A carefully curated palette of white and near white tones that form a blank canvas to your artistic home. As a trend, masterpiece white walls are refreshing. Radiant light coming in through the windows is the accent in these calm rooms. Bring artwork to focus by trying out alternative accent wall colors.

“Vertical gardens not only add to the aesthetic value of the walls but they come with a lot of functional benefits also. The thick vegetation limits the movement of heat and helps to regulate sunlight and temperature even during the hot afternoons that makes it a perfect fit for summer decors.

“Some varieties of plants are also useful in absorbing potentially harmful gases and cleaning the air inside modern buildings. In addition to this, incorporating vertical gardens in the decor of any building brings a living element to the environment and being around greenery helps in reducing the stress levels also.” (IANS)
