Fall is the perfect time to give your home a color upgrade. As the weather gets cooler, you’ll be stuck inside. Painting will make your home more soothing and relaxing while you are forced to be indoors. And with the winter holidays right around the corner, giving your home a fall color refresh will make your home look merry and bright during those holiday gatherings. Some of the best fall color inspirations for your home are:
Fall is one of the most colorful times of the year. You can bring the beauty of the outdoors inside to make you happy when the snow falls by adding some of the many bright autumn colors to your home. On-trend autumn paint colors for this year include:
- Harvest yellow
- Leaf green
- Scarlet red
- Wheat brown
If you want to bring in some seasonal color but are unsure how to use color in your home to complement your existing décor, consider adding some painted wainscotting panels or painted moldings in your home. You can also paint your doors. Adding color to elements like wainscotting panels that can be easily removed and changed or to doors that are easy to paint is a smart way to add color without a big commitment.
Moody And Dark
Another option for transforming your home in the fall is to lean into the dark and moody colors of the fall to make your home feel cozy and comforting. Even if you have small rooms, you can use dark colors. It’s a myth that you should only paint small rooms light colors. Dark colors instantly make a small room feel cozy and luxurious, like putting on your favorite cashmere sweater. Some stunning dark fall color choices for this fall include:
- Deep olive
- Dark russet brown
- Deep gold
- Navy blue
- Slate gray
- Forest green
- Amethyst purple
If you’re not ready to commit to an entire room in a dark, moody color, try painting just the trim a dark color. Use the same color throughout the house to make the décor feel cohesive. For example, paint all the white trim in your home a purple-based black to give it an instant autumn feel.
If you’re planning on having a lot of family and friends over for the holidays and want your photos to be social media ready, upgrade your holiday parties by painting your home seasonal hues. Holiday colors like these are the perfect backdrop for holiday parties:
- Silver gray
- Dark gold
- Midnight blue
- Barn red
If you don’t want to go all out and paint your entire home in seasonal colors, but you still want to create a party-ready space for the holidays, try painting one accent wall in your living room or dining room a seasonal color.
