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

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.

10 Sleek and Chic Ways To Use Gold Decor

Copper may still be ruling the ranks in the metallic trend, but gold decor is forever.

Metallic accents are a great way to add depth and dimension to any room in your home. Although you may be yearning for copper, chances are that in ten years times, it will be more dated than 80s chintz. On the other hand, gold has been a popular interior choice since the Ancient Egyptian times. Long story short: gold is a trend that is timeless.

Today we show you ten stunning ways to decorate with gold that will give your home a stunning and on-trend edge.

1. Gold Tapware

For decades, silver has been our go-to hue for tapwares, shower heads and other bathroom goods. Despite this, there is something so stylish and eye-catching about gold tapware.

When paired with dark tiles or a statement pattern, gold tapware has a bohemian elegance that makes it a quirky and beautiful choice for any bathroom.

Alternatively, gold tapware is perfect for a Scandinavian minimalist style bathroom. The combination of subway tiles, gold tapware and marble gives our inner-minimalist literal heart eyes.

2. Statement Gold Pendant & Pillow Covers

A monochrome living room can be given a stunning modern edge with the clever addition of gold accessories.

The statement pendant light, gold pillow cushions, table and photo frame break up the greyscale decor and blend in the wooden floor.

If you are looking to decorate with gold in your living room, green may just be the way to go!

Although this combination may seem quintessentially ‘Christmas’, deep jungle greens and splashes of gold decor are a match made in tropical heaven.

Opt for deep, cool-toned greens such as emerald and teal to stop it from screaming ‘ho ho ho’.

4. Princess Dresser

Every woman has an inner-Disney Princess waiting to come out and this regal dresser allows her to indulge in her childhood dreams.

A gilded gold mirror is perfectly modernized by a pin-leg dresser and sleek, golden chair. This sleek setup is sure to make her feel like the queen she is.

5. Cream & Gold Kitchen

This kitchen is a perfect example of how items that seem so ‘wrong’ can be right in certain circumstances.

The thought of quilted chairs in a kitchen is enough to make us cringe. Despite this, in this creamy dreamy setup, they totally work! A glass table is a fantastic addition to the shiny gold and the statement printed rug and gold canvas pulls it all together perfectly.

Yes, it may be a little ‘Vegas’, but we love it!

She isn’t one of the top bloggers in the world for nothing…
