Fall’s Trending colors

The weather is getting cooler and though our minds associate hues like gold, pumpkin orange and tree bark browns to Fall, there are so many wonderful other choices to choose. Autumn days are the perfect time to refresh your home with new colors. So, to go bold or not to go bold? Pantone is the leader and trend setter for colors, here are some of their picks for fall.

Bright White

Don’t rule out wonderful white…Take a cue from Scandinavian design: Greet cooler temperatures and shorter days with a coat of fresh white paint. Adding white on the walls or the ceiling will reflect the available light around your space, taking advantage of every last ray of sunshine.

Misted Yellow

That dark autumn gold has be replaced by a softer, muted, shade of summer-favorite bright yellow, this slightly green color featured in Pantone’s fall color report is a cheerful addition to a kitchen, dining room or living room.


A featured shade on Pantone’s fall color report, Cognac is the design equivalent of a cozy blanket: A dose of this color lends warmth to everything from headboards to walls to bedding.

Burnt Orange

An old school classic that still works great…Burnt orange looks fresh for fall when paired with yellow-green artwork, a navy throw and metallic accents.

Aurora Red

Just between orange and red, this color is evocative of an autumn maple leaf. Pair it with more shades you’ll spot on the fall landscape — think deep reds, yellows and gray-browns — for a can’t-miss seasonal update.

Fire Engine Red

You can still be wild! To make bright red seem especially current, pair it with white, warm gray and reclaimed wood tones.

Radiant Orchid

Pantone’s color of the year transitions seamlessly into fall when paired with deeper purple shades, light browns or deep blues. Gorgeous!

Mauve Mist

This pale pink-purple color is a romantic addition to a fall living room or bedroom. The warm, nearly-neutral shade pairs well with deeper purples, natural wood tones and whites


This plummy purple makes a bold statement — perfect for a dining room or entryway. Cover a whole room with sangria-hued paint or patterned wallpaper, or take a more conservative color approach with a floral throw pillow.


Aluminum Gray

One of our favorites! This warm, inviting shade of gray also featured on Pantone’s fall color report is reminiscent of weathered barn wood. Pair it with reds, yellows and shades of gray for a fall-perfect combination.

Royal Blue

Extend the summer blues. A bit brighter than traditional navy, Pantone’s royal blue adds vibrancy to fall walls. Balance the dark wall color with light wood tones and white accessories.

Bright Cobalt

Staying on the cooler scale? This color is cool and bright all at once. Another color featured on Pantone’s fall fashion color report, this shade is a natural with its color-wheel opposite, orange.

Deep Teal

Deep, moody teal is the ideal backdrop for all of fall’s traditional reds, oranges and yellows. Add it to your walls and your classic fall accent pieces will look just as vibrant.

Cypress Green

As the leaves turn deeper shades of hot, adding a cool green hue on the walls can keep that sense of spring.
