How to Create a Warm Color Palette for the Fall Season

Updated: 2023-03-16

Don't you just love the comfort of a fall color palette? We do! Outdoorsy influences like the changing colors of leaves and harvest elements like corn, squash, pumpkins, and apples define the perfect fall color palette for interior design. Fall colors bring warmth and coziness to your interior.

What if you want to keep that fall-warm color palette year-round? Read on for help from the experts on creating a perfect fall look in your home. You may even be able to keep that warmth and coziness throughout the year. According to Aleena Khan, "Your home should speak to who you are, so if you like fall colors, then we should incorporate them into the room design."

So What is a Fall Color Palette in Interior Design?

The fall color palette brings in the warm, natural colors of the outdoors – crisp leaves, bold mums, and woodsy colors. Reds, yellows, oranges, browns, and even deep purples come to mind. Outdoors, these hues appear side-by-side and overlapping so that you can do the same in your home. While a fall color palette can sometimes seem rustic, fall colors can also be sophisticated, with accents like classy mirrorsshapely lampsbold accent pillows, and upscale prints.

People who favor warm colors may love the up-to-the-minute fall color palette Pantone announces yearly. When Pantone evaluates the trendiest fall colors from New York Fashion Week, their choices often appear in many areas of design, from clothing to upholstery. If you find yourself drawn to a particular hue in this year's Pantone color palette, design consultant Aleena Khan advises incorporating the shade through accent pieces. A playful ottoman or accent chest is a perfect way to bring color into the room.

How to Keep Autumn Colors All Year

To carry a fall color palette year-round, stick with a fairly neutral palette. Then, if you want to swap in other accents as the season progresses, you can. Choose a subtle or neutral shade of fall room decor for the large upholstered pieces and walls, and incorporate your favorite bold fall colors as accents. If you have a fall color that you love, choose an accent chair in that hue, and prepare for a dose of happiness each time you enter the room. Remember to incorporate the accent color at least three times in the space to make them look intentional.

How to Play Up Warm Neutrals for Fall

If most of your furniture consists of neutral colors, you can play it up when autumn comes around with nature-inspired decorations featuring leaves and overlapping colors. Add coziness to your living room arrangement by creating a reading nook and gathering extra chairs around the fireplace. Accents in plaid, herringbone, and tweedy patterns play up fall as they recall warmer clothes and cozy blankets.

In a neutral space, you can add fun accent pillows to freshen up your home décor or a few large-scale art pieces or accessories to fit the fall color palette. You could also add warm accents via rugs or rough-hewn furniture pieces.

It's easy to love a warm fall color palette year-round, especially if you have the room decor to support it from season to season. If you want to incorporate fall colors, natural wood tones, or neutral fabrics, shop the Bassett Furniture collection and let your imagination play.
