Fall 2017 Color Trends

In nature, Fall is all about beautiful colors, so it’s only natural that we want to give our home a little spruce on the spectrum. Rather than taking cue from golden leaves and tawny pumpkins, we’re all about Pantone’s Fall 2017 color trends.

Just in-case you have been living under a trend-repelling rock, Pantone is a world renowned authority on color and has boffins working around the clock to pick out new colors and what they convey in color-critical industries. You may remember past Pantone colors of the year, such as ‘serenity’, or ‘greenery’, the Pantone 2017 color of the year.

So what exactly do the Fall 2017 color trends have in store for our homes?

Well, there’s tawny port (sounds yummy), copper tan (can we get it in spray form?) and shaded spruce (erm…what?). Without further confusing waffle, here’s the Fall 2017 color trends according to Pantone…

Tawny Port

What is it?

“Taking the Red family to new depths, Tawny Port is elegant, sophisticated, and tasteful.” (Pantone)

Why we love it

It’s like a warm mulled wine in front of a crackling fireplace whilst wearing our favorite slippers. It’s comforting, it’s cozy and it’s surprisingly delectable.

It’s a more stone-like gray than the lilacy hues seen in past seasons. The lack of overly warm or cool tones mean that it’s oh-so-versatile. Plus, it’s not so harsh that it’s cold!

Easy Fall Decorating Ideas

As the weather outside begins to chill and the falling leaves collect into luscious piles of amber, there’s nothing better than cosy-ing up inside. And what could be more cosy than warm, Fall tones? Embracing the Autumnal season and adding a touch of fall to each room in your house only takes a few touches. So read on and get ready to feel that warm, fuzzy, Fall feeling…

The Living Room

Bringing that Autumnal warmth into your living room is incredibly simple. As a matter of fact, it’s all in the accessories.

Begin by switching your cushion covers to warm, crisp gold, orange and red tones. The Exotic Oriental Pillow Cover will bring the flame-like warmth of an open fire to your sofa. Get ready to snuggle up on those chilly Fall nights!

Fall is defined by golden leaves, so why not inject this picturesque image into your living space? Opt for faux flora in rustic leafy tones in glossy berry-hued vases. If you are feeling quirky mount them on the walls. If you’re not blessed with the wall space, make them the talking point of your coffee table. Place them on top of Embroidered Leaf Placemats for that extra touch of Autumn.

The Bedroom

If there’s one room in the house that deserves that cosy Autumnal touch, it’s the bedroom! With lush bohemian patterned duvet covers trending in interior design, we don’t blame you if you want to stay in bed all day! I recommend this Ornamental Embroidered Duvet Cover Set in Saffron Red to nail the bohemian and fall decor trends in one.

If you’re feeling ready to embrace the festive spirit, why not try this drool-worthy Autumnal wonderland? We love the way it has that ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ vibe to it and it is surprisingly easy to re-create.

If you are lucky enough to own a four poster bed, simply drape fabric between the front and back pairs of posts, ensuring there is enough fabric to cascade down on either side. Then attach individual strings of string fairy lights along the fabric. Swap your duvet cover for a warm-shaded, fall appropriate number such as the Hand Embroidered Duvet Cover set in Scarlet red and you have your very own Fall wonderland.

No four poster bed? Don’t fret! Find a cosy corner of the room to re-create this fairy paradise. Then simply hang the draped fabric off the ceiling and single-stranded fairy lights. Make your secret corner more Pinterest-worthy with warm-hued printed cushions. The Hand Embroidered Throw Pillow and Floral Embroidered Pillow are a match made in Autumnal heaven.

The Office

Injecting a little bit of color into your at-home office never hurt. Who knows; it may even make you work better! Add some colorful and comfy Paisley embroidered pillow covers onto your office chair cushions for that comfy fall feeling.

De-clutter that office table by adorning it with a fall-themed table runner. The Saree Border table runner will beat that Autumnal chill and have you dreaming of Indian summers. Invest in some gold-hued binders or folders to keep pesky paperwork neat and tidy.

Not convinced an Autumnal coloured office is for you? Psychologists have discovered that burgundy tones portray control, responsibility and confidence. So if you are looking to succeed in your at-home business, this floral table runner in saffron red is for you. Plus: it totally ticks all the fall trend boxes.

The Kitchen

If any room deserves a fall makeover, it’s the kitchen. After all, this is where all the Thanksgiving magic and pumpkin carving will take place.

Unsurprisingly, fall kitchen decor is all about those seasonal veggies, so why not use some as decor until you cook them. Storing them in the pantry will do nothing for the atmosphere of your kitchen! Take your favorite veggie and embellish with a faux red leaf and pretty rustic ribbons.

If you must eat that squash tonight, Fall-coloured foliage makes an equally stunning worktop-topper. Place your decorations on a warm-hued, printed table runner, such as the Jacquard Floral Table Runner.

The Dining Room

Although it seems that nothing could make your mum’s pumpkin pie taste better, a cosy Fall atmosphere just might make it a teeny bit more luscious. Fall Tablescapes are super easy to recreate and only take a few minor changes to your normal decor.

Add a table runner to your neutral table cloth, such as this Hand Embroidered Table Runner to add an atmospheric warmth to your dining area. Pair with matching placemats or invest in a set that has a matching table runner and placemats, such as this hand painted set.

Add faux pumpkins and some berry-dotted twigs and you’re all set for Thanksgiving!

The Bathroom

Make a warm bath even warmer with luscious orange tones. Scented fall candles and orange flora will bring the outdoors in.

For a really easy injection of fall, add a red or orange tissue box cover, such as this Hand Embroidered piece, to your tissue box. Yes: it really is that easy!

Just add some cinnamon scented bubble bath, light your candles and turn the lights off for a relaxing and festive evening.

The only dilemma is… which room will you give a fall makeover to first?
