The last post in this colour psychology series is about the Summer personality and very close to my heart, as I am a Summer personality. Once you know your basic colour season it becomes so easy to choose colours for your personal (interior, wardrobe) and professional (business brand) areas. Please check out my previous posts about the Spring, Autumn, and Winter personalities if you have not had a chance to read them yet.
Classic Sense of Style
Summer personalities have a great sense of style and love everything elegant and classic. They love their routine, are disciplined, and often perfectionists. They are efficient and good at handling multiple things at once. Balance, order, proportion, and quality are important to them. Quality of craftsmanship, good design, and beautiful aesthetics are vital. Summer personalities are very organised, have a great attention to detail and love creating order out of chaos. They are very sensitive and empathetic and have a strong sense of responsibility.
Summer colours are cool and calm, faded, muted, soft, and often greyed-off. Grey is a key colour in the summer palette. It pairs well with tones of lavender, pink, sage green, and soft blues. Cool navy combined with soft whites or beige suits the Summer personality.
Patterns are flowing, delicate and elegant; think faded florals, water colours or softly shaped abstract forms, and classic stripes. Textures are silk, lace, or cashmere – everything luxurious.
In your home – as well as in your wardrobe – you love a classic timeless style. Symmetry plays an important role when furnishing your interior. Quality that stands the test of time is important to you. You love creating an elegant, sophisticated space with muted and soft colours. Wool rugs create warmth and comfort on polished floorboards or cool tiles. You love the touch and feel of beautiful natural fabrics, such as linen, wool, or silk.

If you are renovating or planning to downsize to a smaller space invest the time to work out your colour personality. It will be so much easier to create your unique interior. Imagine how it would feel like to live in a home that makes you happy every single day!
