June marks the start of summer and we couldn't be more excited about it! Soon the kids will be out of school and we-ll be spending our days sitting in the sunshine and enjoying a cold, sweet treat. This classic summer experience is the inspiration behind June's Color of the Month: Vanilla Ice Cream.

This classic color is a creamy off-white with just a touch of yellow. it's a warm and welcoming neutral tone that creates the perfect backdrop for just about any palette! It works well with both warm and cool colors and is an ideal choice for a wall color or for the exterior of your home.

We love the idea of running with the ice cream theme and creating a palette of chocolate, strawberry, and vanilla tones. (How fun would that be for a vintage-inspired kitchen or a kids' bedroom?) For a more modern look, vanilla ice cream is a perfect base color for a palette of cool greens and blues. For a more minimalist look, keep things simple with a palette of neutrals like brown, dark gray, and taupe, livened up with a hint of sage green.
