The One Color Our Editors Are Obsessed With This Fall
When I asked the team to chime in on what color trends they were coveting most this season, I did not expect to get a unanimous vote. Survey says we're all green with envy over lush emerald tones. From army to kelly, we're really feeling the color of money this fall. The chameleon hue takes on a new personality with each passing shade, adapting beautifully to any number of spaces. Which exact tones currently have us swooning? Keep scrolling to find out!
"We crowned the color trend 'swamp' back in 2013, and I am still crushing on it hard—it feels dusty and rich at the same time. I love the library in Sara Costello's New Orleans home, which has a similar hue, and I painted my own bedroom in Farrow & Ball's Dix Blue." — Julia Millay Walsh, editorial director

"I watch Alfonso Cuarón's Great Expectations as a fall seasonal tradition. It's flush with the most gorgeous green color palettes. The set pieces of Paradiso Perduto alone are so extravagant in their falling-apart-at-the-seams glamour. Green is a motif throughout the film, echoing the book's themes of money, envy, and prestige. Gwyneth Paltrow and Anne Bancroft routinely trot out in fabulous costumes, from mint-green tafetta to kelly-green chiffon. It makes me want to cover everything in my house in enough green velvet to make Scarlet O'Hara jealous." — Jillian Knox Finley, senior lifestyle editor
"I see life through a shaded lens of black, white, and gray, so color doesn't usually enter my spectrum. But I do love military green, khaki, and this desert-taupe tone that would look great as an accent pillow or sofa—I am lusting after the Stephen Kenn 3-Piece Sofa in Military Canvas." — Sacha Strebe, lifestyle editor
