Stave off the sultry summer weather with the fresh and breezy hues of the BREATHE palette of Boysen Color Trend 2022/23Make Spaces Where You Can Breathe | MyBoysen

Unless you hide yourself under a rock or hibernate in a cool, air-conditioned room with curtains shutting out most of the intense summer light…and heat…, you cannot help but feel the high humidity and sweltering heat of the summer days that are now upon us.

It pays to slow down and breathe deeply, savoring each second that unfolds instead of rushing headlong into the day at full speed. Take your cue from the paint names and take Baby Steps upon awaking, drink your Herbal Tea, do your Morning Yoga. When you are about to start work, think ‘But First, Coffee‘ to fire up the neurons for a productive burst of creative energy. Or not.

But whatever it is you do, take good care of yourself. You do you and do it well. Here are some tips from this post.

A Restful Retreat with the BREATHE Color Palette

Fresh and Breezy Hues of BREATHE

Four of the paint colors of the BREATHE palette are warm red-based hues. The gray-green and almost black color balance the reddish shades, none of which are intense.

These hues work in a tropical country like ours. Check out the interior spaces using these colors in the blog post below.

The BREATHE Color Palette

The BREATHE color palette is fresh, youthful and gentle, composed of hues which act as a counterpoint to the heat wave brought on by the summer months.

Cool colors like light blue and mint can bring about that balance, of course. But the subtle reds of the BREATHE color palette kindle a joyful feeling for sensual pleasures and the adventure of endless possibilities that only the summer months can bring.

Summer is a time for discovery and experimentation, for rest and growth, so what better way than to surround oneself with the colors of creativity, passion, courage, and warmth.

People say that age is just a state of mind. Surrounding yourself with fresh and relaxing colors can help you keep that young state of mind. When the sultry summertime is here, it would help to avoid the blacks and neon colors. Instead, dress your home and yourself with the light and happy colors of the BREATHE palette.
