Jeff shares his suggestions for turning up the heat with your summer décor.

Flipping out over how to make a splash with your home décor this summer? Team JLD has got you covered. Our favorite house flipper/interior designer, Jeff Lewis, shared some of his secrets exclusively with Bravotv.com. 

According to Jeff, the color of the moment is gray (or charcoal). He's also noticed a resurgence of '80s style, which translates to a lot of polished chrome and glass. People are really looking for a "contemporary blend," and as Jeff points out, "That's good for my business, because that's my aesthetic." So cool colors are the key to having the coolest house on the block.

As far as outdoor furnishings go, Jeff recommends adding a nice pop of color to your patio set. He recently swapped in a bright, new orange table, which was the perfect piece to spice things up for summer. Or as Jenni pointed out, the perfect place to put a tray of martinis. 

Be sure to tune in for the new season of Flipping Out premiering Wednesday, July 6 at 9/8c.
