While bidding adieu to the bright and cheery hues of summer is always a bummer, we’ve been anticipating the next season all year. Fall, one of our favourite seasons for interiors, evokes a moody yet sophisticated feel — which results in an understated design without being too minimalistic.
Pantone, the world-renowned authority on colour, has named 10 shades as the fall colours for this year — and we are sold. While fall usually brings about visions of deep and warm hues such as reds, oranges and browns, Pantone is out to prove us wrong. The company also included a muted grey, navy blue and dusty pink in the mix; and these hues surprisingly complement the other shades. You can also expect to see the colour of the year for 2017, Greenery, in a more intense hue.
“Bookended by a dynamic Grenadine red and a tawny Autumn Maple, the colour palette for fall 2017 leans more to warmth, “ said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. “While comforting, enveloping colours and ease are crucial to the seasonal feeling, standout shades include a pale pink Ballet Slipper, a refreshing Golden Lime, and a bright Marina blue. These hues add a striking touch when paired with the classic autumnal shades of Navy Peony, Neutral Gray, Butterrum and Tawny Port.”
We’ve chosen 7 of our favourite shades, which blend flawlessly together to create a streamlined yet unique colour palette for your abode this fall. From a deep burgundy to a dusty blush that is a more underrated alternative to millennial pink, check out these fall colours you need, and learn how you can incorporate them into your home interiors.
