As we anticipate the latest crop of NYFW street style photography, we’re looking forward to all the inspiration for not only upgrading our fall wardrobes but also refreshing our homes. After all, fashion and décor trends often go hand in hand in more ways than one, color among them. That’s why season after season, we loyally turn to the ultimate authority for all things color—Pantone—for insights on the hottest new shades.
While we can’t always love every single hue on Pantone’s palette, there’s no denying that its team has a finger on the pulse, regularly forecasting new colors that might not be on our radar—yet. Referencing the Color of the Year, this season’s trend report is based on shades of blue, interweaving elegant neutrals like sharkskin gray and warm taupe, complementing with stunning muted reds, and sprinkling in a few bold and unexpected shades. Ready to introduce the hottest new colors to your own home? We show you how with our favorite décor accents.
