Runway-Inspired Home Decor That'll Keep You Cool This Summer

Lala has a mind of its own when it comes to spring weather — hot one day, cool the next, with dashes of rain thrown in for good measure. We can trust, though, that it won't be long before the steamy heat arrives, and it'll stick around well past Labor Day (September is the best, no?). In preparation for those sweltering days ahead, cool down your decor with the colors of the sea, à la a fresh look from Rachel Comey’s spring collection.
We’re digging the sea-foam green (a classic Crayola box favorite), purple-y beige, and deep teals in this effortless look. And a shot of electric cobalt blue and velvety black keeps it feeling fresh. Paint these colors on your walls, update an old dresser, add a few throw pillows, or a tray to hold your cocktails — et voilà, you'll be ready to survive the season in style (or at least have a breezy respite when you can't take the heat anymore). Check out our interior interpretation of this airy number, and stay cool, dear readers!
