NOVEMBER 2, 2020

Now that the leaves have changed and the days are getting chiller, what better way to warm up your home than to transition the hues to some of the latest fall colors. When refreshing your interiors for the season, nothing has quite as much visual impact—or plain old ROI—than repainting a room. It's the quick, easy and affordable solution to get a fresh new look. 

Today, we’ve tapped a few Decorist designers to give us their thoughts on what colors are trending this fall. From more subtle moody hues to bold saturated colors, here are this season’s 7 most-try paint colors that will bring fall trends into your home and keep your space feeling fresh.

One of our favorite paint colors is Lamp Room Gray by Farrow and Ball. We love this shade of gray because it has a light green tint which adds to its warmth and sophistication. This color particularly pairs very well with jewel tones which we can't get enough of during the fall months.

Eggplant is a surprising wall color that’s truly the unsung Autumn hue.  Consider using it in a special space that you want to treat like a jewel box and starting with this rich jewel tone sets the tone for a unique color palette.  Benjamin Moore’s Black Raspberry is a darker shade with blue undertones making it a calm yet vibrant option.  Pairing with a variety of purples to pinks and accents of spicey oranges creates a luxurious an sophisticated look while using unexpected colors.

Downpour Blue from Benjamin Moore is a distinct color perfect for illustrating a decorative statement this fall. The unexpected shade pairs beautifully with classic fall colors, making it unique yet equally versatile. It is no surprise Classic Blue was named color of the year for 2020. Design firm LUCA CASA utilized this color to highlight a console table and artwork to create a truly bold look in a contemporary foyer. This alluring blue hue can truly steal the spotlight in any space and leave a lasting impression.

All shades of neutral greens from olive to khaki have an elegant feeling while evoking a bit of nature too.  Spaces feel serene and comfortable but don’t have to be boring as there’s definitely room for a bold touch when pairing accent colors.  Benjamin Moore’s Rolling Hills walks the line of neutral without going overly brown or yellow, allowing the walls to read a soft subtle green that’s ready for just about anything.

Currently, we're in love with shades of deep maroon like Rockwood Dark Red from Sherwin Williams. It reminds us of that feeling when curled up with a glass of red wine on the sofa in fall. It's sophisticated and adds a level of relaxation through its deep, moody yet arm elements. This color is great for those loungy spaces like your movie/media room or even your master suite. For a bold statement, try this color in your powder room.

I love Farrow & Ball’s Inchyra Blue for a dramatic Fall paint color.  It's the perfect moody backdrop to soak up once the crisp autumn air sets in.  With hints of a worn in blue, warm grey, and an earthy green - it is a versatile color making it ideal for any space. Cue in some flannel, hints of brass, and some rich woods for an extra cozy experience.

Few colors truly connect to the earth in the way terracotta does.   Benjamin Moore’s Nutmeg envelopes a space transforming it into a retreat no matter the style of the rest of the design.  It easily becomes a backdrop for a textured and layered neutral bohemian look or can pair with pops of jewel tones for an elevated eclectic design.  It’s especially impactful when working with this color to consider how the paint finish will affect the look.  Tones of terracotta get deeper and start to look like the walls of a Moroccan riad in a matte finish while a high gloss finish in a space like a formal dining room feels like a regal English country estate.  This makes considering the finish just as important as finding the perfect color equally essential.
