Here we are, right in the heart of summer! There's so much to love about this time of year, but we have to say, our favorite thing about summer is getting to spend so much time outdoors. In fact, that's what has inspired our choice for the Color of the Month for August. Meet Peridot!

Peridot painted living room with great single seater and plants

Peridot just happens to be the birthstone for this month, so it was an easy choice! As a gemstone, it's known as the stone of compassion. it's said to bring good health, beautifully restful sleep, and can help bring balance to the emotions and the mind. The gorgeous green color also inspires creativity and brightens your mood.

Peridot is a unique shade of green-the shimmering, pale green color reminds us of a cool patch of grass on a hot day. it's the perfect shade for summer, as it's nice and bright, but also has a cool calming element to it. it's also quite versatile, since it's earthy vibe pairs perfectly with both neutrals and brighter colors.

If you want to keep things simple and sophisticated, you can't go wrong when you pair this gorgeous Peridot green with rich neutrals like cream, beige, and deep charcoal. Whether you use Peridot on the walls or as a pop of color against the neutral backdrop, it's a classic color palette that will definitely turn heads. For something a little more adventurous, bring in other earthy pops of color like blues, crisp white, soft pink, and subtle hints of red. (Adding a little leopard print into the mix is a great touch too!)

Peridot would also be a gorgeous look on the outside of your home too! In the right shade, this gorgeous light green would be an incredible allover paint color. it's bright enough to capture people's attention, but it also blends in well with its surroundings. Pair it with crisp white trim and a vibrant painted front door for a modern look.
