We're Calling It: This Color Will Be in Every Stylish Home This Fall

Sepia Decor
Genevieve Garruppo ; DESIGN: Tali Roth

Let's be honest: While it would be great to redecorate when the seasons shift, constantly investing in new furniture just isn't realistic. If you're craving a bold new look for fall without spending big, there's one simple yet effective way to dramatically alter the mood of your space: color. One shade, in particular, is stealing the show. 

We've noticed sepia in almost every new home decor collection. From H&M Home's entertaining line to IKEA's latest pendant lights, the reddish-brown color is having a serious moment. "I picked up on this over a year ago and weaved it in through my space, as I just love it," Homepolish interior designer Tali Roth told us of the autumnal hue.

It's an incredibly versatile color to decorate with. Sepia is almost a neutral, so it pares well with taupe, off-white, gray, and black, making it an ideal accent color in a minimalist home. "The way I used it was through an ottoman, a throw cushion, and some vintage art," says Roth. "I have also seen some awesome cinnamon linens that I think are a fun way to experiment with the color without making a massive investment."
