The hues, scents and ambiance of fall have long been an inspiration for poets, artists and dreamers – and it’s no wonder. Cozy nostalgia, the turning and falling of foliage, misty mornings and sundown campfires. Bliss.
And the color palette… Is there a season that unleashes such a harmonious rainbow? From russet to ceylon, magenta to maple, we look at creative ways of incorporating fall color schemes into your home.
Fall living room decor
As a space that you want to be as welcoming as possible, rustic colors are a great choice for the living room. If you opt for this as your main scheme, go for warm browns with just a hint of grey, a toned-down gold or hazelnut cream. If you simply want to add a hint of fall to this space try a deep emerald green rug or a few ruby scatter cushions. Both these additions look great with both dark and light woods and will catch this season’s golden evening light beautifully.
After a long day, curl up on a sumptuous couch in deep chocolate or toffee brown, and enjoy a cup of warm cocoa under a soft teal or fuchsia throw.
Fall bedroom decor
As your soothing sanctuary, gentle fall colors work wonderfully in the bedroom. Russet red offset with lichen green, grays or an earthy terracotta create a peaceful ambiance in rooms of all shapes and sizes. For a burst of freshness go for a corner chair or vase in leafy green. Should you have a passion for patterns, try a leafy wallpaper or drapes in burnt orange or maple red.
If your main color scheme is neutral or white and you want a burst of color, a statement wall in rich orange or mustard creates an eye-catching look, without being overpowering. Ornaments or artwork in mid-tone blues balances this color scheme perfectly.
Fall dining room decor
Deep, dusky blues are one of the best fall paint colors to pair with darker woods, Accentuate with nature-themed or ceramic accessories and keep the elemental feel with a wooden or neutral floor. If you want to evoke the glorious orchard hues of this season, try integrating elements of fresh apple red, damson and luscious plum.
Fall kitchen decor
If you’re a fan of an airy, neutral space for your kitchen but want to add some warmth, this dusky terracotta wall panel and earth-toned accessories add depth to the room and enhance the warm grains in the oak.
If you love the traditional but are seeking something a little bolder then consider incorporating the ultimate symbol of fall, the pumpkin. Teamed with a terracotta floor, gold-hued accessories and copper pan sets, you’ve got a kitchen that will be a treat to cook in.
