Today is the first day of Autumn and just like clock work, the mornings and evenings are becoming cool and crisp. You will be spending more time indoors now, and it’s time to make your home comfortable and cozy with rich textures and colors. Velvety throw pillows on the sofa, a warm blanket on the reading chair, poufs, spice-scented candles, tea lights, stacks of firewood by the fireplace. All these things makes gathering spaces comfy.
But…if you are a little tired of the traditonal colors that usually go along with fall decor, read on!
Pantone Inc. is considered to be the authority on color trends. This is the collection of current colors for 2012, used both in women’s fashion and home interiors.
You are not meant to incorporate all the colors, by the way. Use the neutrals ( gray, brown, and off-white) and add one or two of the bright colors for a little punch of interest here and there. Bright Chartreuse is my go-to pop of color with an occasional touch of Rhubarb this year. Here are some pics with some of my favorite new (non traditional) fall color palettes.
