Fall Color Combinations for your Home

As we begin to enter the chillier part of the fall and winter seasons, warmth and comfort come to mind. The easiest way to prepare your home for the cool weather ahead? Adding in fall color schemes that resemble the changing of the season that surrounds us. The natural, earthy, and vibrant hues of autumn are awe-inspiring. Decorating around these bold, fall color combos can seem intimidating, so our color consulting experts are here to recommend the following colors for your southeastern Pennsylvania home this fall. Keep in mind, it is not only the individual colors themselves, but the fresh approach of combining select colors and textures that creates the perfect color palette.

Sophisticated Pastels

One of our favorite ways to incorporate fall into your home is combining nostalgic pastels with stronger notes of color. Especially appealing are blushes or pale blues combined with shades of green. Warm, dusty blush walls (pictured above) are accented with a green velvet chair and rich, hunter green velvet drapes that take the drama up a notch. This fall color combo is both intriguing and muted all at the same time. 

Earthy Olive Greens

Another fall color scheme we can’t get enough of is deep green. Give your living space a sense of freshness with this earthy hue. Here, both brown leather and ivory boucle fabrics complement the olive green walls for a calming combo.

The earthy richness of olive green (pictured below) is complemented by blue pastels. Try breaking up the blocks of solid color with an abstract piece of art or a cushioned headboard.

Exotic Warmth: Rich Reds

We love the look of these terra cotta walls with high gloss trim, gold wool carpeting, and gorgeous shades of berry. Images of charming, fall apple orchards are evoked, making this sophisticated room a real conversation starter.

Rich, clay-colored walls adorn the foyer of this classic home with shades of pomegranate in the rug and bright gold accents welcoming family and friends. The deep shades of rusty red add texture and depth to this space. 

Dynamic Whites and Neutrals

Cooler weather calls for tones with more depth, so try layering neutrals to add interest to a monochrome palette. Deep gray walls, white trim, a beige linen sofa, and drapes with soft, gold accent pillows create the perfect moody backdrop for this time of year.

This stylish yet serene bedroom combines greige walls with white, cream, and gray. The dark wood bedside table works to liven up the room and keep it from feeling too monochromatic.
