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.
