If there’s one thing to love about fall, it’s the veritable pallet of warm and cozy hues associated with the season. Think: rich pumpkin-esq orange, decadent chocolate-esq brown, and candy apple-esq red; (if the season doesn’t ignite your inner decor bug, it might just ignite your taste buds instead!) Keep reading for our pick of hues that are on-trend for the chilly months ahead.
Arguably, orange is the hue that captures the essence of fall the most. Think: falling leaves, Halloween pumpkins, and vivid early sunsets. If you’re fond of the color, shades of orange can lend brightness and warmth to your home, which can be a welcomed juxtaposition when it’s damp, dreary, and dark outside.
Riding the coattails of orange tones is rust, which walks the thin line between orange and red. They key to incorporating rust in your home lies in the colors you use to accent it, as employing muted colors alongside rust can come off looking stuffy and dated. Instead, take the color wheel into account when you’re selecting accenting hues. Shades of blue or turquoise will provide a stunning backdrop in which rust will really pop and shine.
Bronze in a dining or living room setting enforces a feeling of formalness and luxury without being too flashy. Try brushed bronze for a look that’s formal, but subtle. If you’re apprehensive about a predominately bronze color scheme coming off dated, couple it with contemporary pattern use and rich brown hues.
Surprise, surprise, green makes our trend-watch rundown once again. Pair a green interior with natural wood accents for a look that’s truly organically-inspired and will transition well right into winter, and then into spring and summer again. According to Country Living, “The leaves outside may be changing, but inside, things are going green.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves!
