I’m going to be honest, I am so over summer! It is so hot here in Austin and the humidity is even worse!! I’m tempted to hole up in my house until Oct 1 while sipping white wine spritzers (don’t judge me), working on this blog, and watching New Girl. Luckily, Fall is just around the corner and I’m so excited for the cooler months and fall fashion. Yes, I LOVE fall fashion. The other day I was investigating the Pantone Color Institute’s Fall Fashion Color Report to see what they are forecasting for fall. Per usual, there are some pretty nice hues off the New York and London Runways, and I thought it may be fun to apply these colors to interior design. Here are some of the (very) inspiring spaces “inspired by” Pantone’s colors of Fall 2017:
The first shade I fell in love with is this lovely Bordeaux hue that the color institute likes to call “Tawny Port.” I absolutely love this color and find that it’s easy to work with, and has just the right amount of pop while still being a bit of a neutral.
I just love this deep wine color paired with a dark turquoise. And guess what?? That dark turquoise shade is right off the New York runway and is referred to as “Shaded Spruce.”
BTW… that wine color, it also looks fantastic with Navy. Navy blue is in this fall’s color report as well, only Pantone calls it “Navy Peony.”
Here are a couple spaces inspired by those dark cool tones…
Get the look:
Pantone also selected this amazing shade of chenille green that they like to call “Golden Lime.” I wouldn’t normally gravitate toward this color for an entire room, but these spaces are pretty sweet.
And, of course, this beautiful blush pink called “Ballet Slipper,” is another one of Pantone’s colors of Fall 2017. This color is also referred to as “Millenial Pink” which makes absolutely no sense at all. Am I right? And, regardless, someone please explain the meaning of this to me because I don’t get it!
Another color right off the fall runway is this fabulous camel hue that I’m obsessed with because it looks great with just about everything.
The next color is this amazing vibrant lilac. It seems as if designers like this hue so much that they don’t use it sparingly. These tone on tone purple spaces are so much fun!
There were several other colors in this seasons color report and you can view them all here. Let me know if your space reflects any of these fall color trends and send me pics!
