Remember a few weeks ago when a good part of the D-Happ staff was obsessed with all things watermelon? Kayla made the juicy fruit the topic of her Mood Board Monday. Allie showed us five ways to craft with watermelon. And I even pitched in with a watermelon-inspired Tuesday Huesday. So when Nina, HGTV.com’s entertainment manager, introduced a watermelon-themed Pinterest board to the Color Team, it wasn’t exactly a hard sell. That’s right: Bright, juicy watermelon is our newest Color of the Month!
August is the height of watermelon season: Think big-as-your head slices of fruit pulled straight from the icebox, dribbling down your chin. Or, if cocktails are more your speed, try this melon-filled margarita recipe.
As lots of folks head back to college, this almost-neon color is the ideal hue to add some personality to a dorm room or first apartment. Start small with an embroidery-hoop message center or paint-dipped planter…
…or go big with a fun duvet cover.
Even though this hue seems ultra-summery, it’s also the perfect transition hue. Pair it with soft gray, dark green or mustard yellow for a bright space that’s perfect for early fall.
