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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
