IN THIS ISSUE

The pinks, purples and reds of flowering shrubs, the brilliant blues of sparkling waters and clear skies, the cheery yellow of the sun and the bright greens of perfect landscaping — these are the bold colors of summer. And in this issue, designers are infusing interiors with the season’s most vibrant hues.

Designer Doug Meyer playfully fashioned his 1,100-square-foot South Beach pied-á-terre, shown on the cover, using fantastical elements and cotton candy hues of purple, pink and white. Mixing mid-20th-century furnishings by pivotal designers with both his own custom-designed pieces and personal collections, Meyer blends colors, shapes, fabrics and materials for a very whimsical retreat.

In a 5,000-square-foot home in Delray Beach, Fla., designer Allen Saunders and his team incorporated vibrant accents of bright yellow and grass green to echo the outdoor views. With a complete makeover transforming traditional Mediterranean to streamlined, fresh and daring, Saunders’ light and contemporary design highlights the owners’ modern art collection and provides a colorful setting that is at once elegant and comfortable.

Architect and interior designer Jenny L. Carter reveals the beauty of nature with her design of a Bali-inspired, 5,800-square-foot Captiva Island retreat. Set against lush landscaping with wide, open spaces that take in the surrounding views, Carter infused the home with splashes of color, including sun-drenched accents of melon, cantaloupe and tomato, as well as soft blues and pale yellows that complement the outdoor views. The result is a clean-lined, contemporary design that feels more like a tropical paradise. The bold hues of summer have arrived. Whatever you may be looking for, let color shine.
