Fall Color Trends

As I sit and write this, I feel like fall has finally made its appearance. The nights have turned colder, and there is a Pumpkin Spice Latte scent in the air. As we move into the colder temps of fall, we are seeing the color trend go from bright lively colors to richer, bolder earth tones. Pantones Fall 2017 Color Palette is a mix of rich earth tones which are incredibly versatile in any design. They are a beautiful, rich collection of classic autumnal colors.

“Bookended by a dynamic Grenadine red and a tawny Autumn Maple, the color palette for Fall 2017 leans more to warmth," says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. "While comforting, enveloping colors and ease are crucial to the seasonal feeling, standout shades include a pale pink Ballet Slipper, a refreshing Golden Lime, and a bright Marina blue. These hues add a striking touch when paired with the classic autumnal shades of Navy Peony, Neutral Gray, Butterum and Tawny Port.” 



Grenadine is a powerful, evocative, dynamic red. It radiates a confident vibe, a real attention –getter. This color would look great as an accent wall or even a lipstick.

 

A more sophisticated darker shade of red, Tawny Port is a rich wine color. It is deep and rich the evokes an elegant and tasteful feel.


Ballet Slipper is still in the red family but it is on the soft side of the spectrum. This soft glamorous pink is sure to become one of your favorites.


Butterum is a warm toasty brown. The name is evocative of drinking a glass of Butterum by a warm fire. It is a rich comforting brown hue.



Navy Peony is an elegant color that is darker than navy blue but it also reads as vibrant and rich. It is solid and stable and works as an anchoring shade and a go-to neutral.



Just like Navy Peony, Neutral Gray is an anchoring shade and can be used as an accent or a head to toe statement color. This grey is a cool grey and would pair well with blues and greens.


Shaded Spruce is one of my favorites of the season, reminiscent of evergreen trees and the forest. This color can also be described as a darker, richer version of Teal.


Golden Lime combines an earthy green coloring with a golden yellow, creating this cheerful shade. It is an earth tone with a twist and is a refreshing complement to the fall classics.



Marina is both a cheerful and elegant color that will brighten up any fall palette. It is a cool blue with an apt name, this color will bring freshness to the fall.


Evocative and richly textured, Autumn Maple is a quintessential autumn color. This tawny, russet color adds warmth to the palette. For more information, check out www.pantone.com.
