Colorful Rooms for Summer

House Beautiful

For this week's look into the House Beautiful archives, we've pulled a diverse collection of pics that are all about color - gorgeous color from pinks to greys to greens. Each pic above is from a slide show below the jump, where you can find more colors in the family as well as the names and brands of each one. Enjoy!

Pic 2 A Look Back at Color in 1958: Pretty Pastels - Shag carpet may be out of style, but some of these colors are still right on the mark for a room like a little girl's bedroom.

Pic 4 Summer Colors: A Summer Bedroom - In this Florida bedroom by Jennifer Garrigues, sea green walls in PORTER PAINTS PARSLEY TINT 6998-1 are set off by BENJAMIN MOORE'S CLOUD WHITE 967 on the trim
