I know many of you are familiar with Design Seeds and may recall an older post of mine where I introduced some of you to the website. I love how she pulls together colors to validate how compatible they can be.
Fall colors, to me, are the best color palette you can work off of for your home because they come from natural inspiration. Both warm and cool tones that create balance and anchor a room – yet allow you to accent with seasonal pops of color throughout the year. An entire room can be created – from the walls to the smallest accent detail. Furniture, throws, rugs, pillows and artwork can be a potpourri of color if chosen correctly.
Take a look at this living space:
I see oranges (walls), teals (stars), greens (curtains), reds (pool table), browns (furniture, fireplace, woods), whites (trim, bowl), yellows (lampshade, flowers) and slates (chandeliers, barrel, hearth). The designer used many colors, yet they all work so well together and you don’t look at this room and think that it can only be pulled off September – November.
Fall colors are not all about orange – although a subtle pumpkin color can be beautiful in a home. My den is painted in pumpkin with deep walnut wood and white accents and I love it, year round.
Slates, plums, creams, reds, greens, teals, browns and vintage whites are all colors that work well with the season. Take a look at some of what Design Seeds has put together…
APPLE & PEAR
AUTUMN STILL LIFE
Out of these eight combinations, do you have a favorite? Do you already use a combination of these colors in your home? Year round, or just seasonal accents?
If you are in the middle of home projects to get ready for the holidays, perhaps one of these palettes will give you some ideas. Have a great Thursday!
