5 New Color Palettes to Try This Fall
At the start of every season, we find ourselves ready for a mini makeover at home. Not a full-fledged redecoration of course, but simply a desire to tweak what we already have and start the season off fresh. If you’re looking to switch things up at home this fall, consider incorporating new accents like pillows, throws, occasional furniture, and accessories in one of the new takes on fall color combinations below. Though the weather may be turning chilly, with one of these pairings, things are sure to start heating up at home.
The color of autumn foliage, red and yellow is an expected fall combination, but we’re modernizing the pairing by opting to unite golden yellows with berry tones. Not quite pink, but brighter than burgundy, berry is a perfect accent to transition from summer to winter and the upcoming holiday season. Look for berry-toned rugs with yellow accents to add some spice to your entry, or pair pillows with these colors for a fresh fall look.
The colors of storms and overcast days, blue and gray complement each other beautifully and work together to enhance warm details, like brass and wood tones. Add a gray throw to a blue sofa or use a blue pillow on a charcoal chair to inject the same stormy sophistication into your home.
When black and tan, a timeless combination, are paired in interiors, the results are always stunning. The smooth undertones of tan shades of brown, a classic autumn color, are enhanced by the inky dark notes of black, resulting in enveloping environments that feel cozy, not cold. Try mixing throw pillows in these colors on a bed or sofa or look for vintage rugs that contain both shades for an easy update.
We love this fresh combination for early fall because it reminds us of the color of the trees when the leaves just begin to turn. Chairs upholstered in emerald tones look particularly rich and pair beautifully with yellow accents to brighten the mood.
Though traditional autumn palettes always lean toward warmer colors like red, yellow, and orange, we like the idea of switching things up this year by playing with this pairing of cool, moody colors. Add a black table lamp into your mainly blue family room or throw a blue blanket over your black sofa to easily get the look.
