Maybe it's the bright sun, or the beachy vibes of the season, but summer always leaves me fawning over bright bursts of color. Pinks, reds and oranges emanate happiness and energy, particularly when used sparingly and effectively. Here are our favorites from the Apartment Therapy LA group pool on Flickr:
1. Beautiful delicate flowers offset with a modern red lucite lamp, from citrusandorange.
2. JoniRae's fantastic fucsia centerpiece for a birdbath.
3. Pretty pink damask curtains in annalea hart's living room.
4. Lakbdesign/fergusandme's red fold-out desk.
5. Bold, red, ornate chandelier in a room with much subtler tones, from TheOfficeStylist.
1. Gentillefille adds the perfect dose of red to a serene bedroom.
2. Heylucy, your patio has the perfect punch of pink and orange!
3. CompaiCreative's dining room uses color sparingly and effectively.
4. Sara one day's outdoor cushion get a bold red treatment.
5. Pops of pink are used in just the right amount in wood & wool stool's living room setting.
