Fall is here! It’s time to swap out the bright summer colors for earth tones. One of our art director, Meredith Mahoney, shares her top 5 favorite fall colors for 2015. How can you work these into your next project?
As a TCU fan I love any shade of purple, but Eggplant is a deep, rich purple hue that almost seems fit for royalty. The Decoist says, “eggplant is a color that you want to use around your house in the next few years. Sophisticated and stunning, this color is admired by many.”
The 2015 Pantone® color of the year, “Marsala,” is a perfect fall color. Pantone describes Marsala as a “tasteful hue that embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness.”
3. Stormy Gray
Gray tones might be the new black. It isn’t as harsh as black, yet still goes with everything! You will be seeing a lot more Stormy Gray in fashion this year. Fashionisers says Stormy Gray "can come off as a strong color, signifying a protective spell, its power lying in the enduring blue-gray."
Mikkel Vang of Elle décor sums up the elegance of Gold perfectly: “In many ways, gold can be considered a neutral. Yes, it's glitzy and too much can be off-putting. Still, if you love glimmer, it transitions brilliantly from one season to the next.”
5. Hunter Green
Apartment Therapy foresees Hunter as part of a "movement towards darker, moodier colors." Hunter seems perfect for the bedroom, "where darker hues feel wonderfully calming and restful."
