In the fall, leaves turn the most vibrant colors. What better place to grab inspiration for paints?
“In a guest room that seems a little staid, paint the bed. This is a Ming yellow like you see in Chinese silk robes, with a little lemon and mustard in it, which gives it more dimension.” -Kim Alexandriuk
Pumpkins: the perfect orange and the perfect symbol of fall.
Add this pumpkin-inspired color to a piece of furniture, one wall, or an entire room — depending on how adventurous you’re feeling.
“I’m Italian, and it’s very Italian to use orange. Think of those luxury brands with orange logos — Hermès and Pratesi. I see it lacquered on a ceiling, with cream walls. Or you could get that faded Tuscan feeling by using it as a wash in the living room. A lacquered orange library with black bookshelves would be totally sensational. Supermodern, superchic.” -Milly de Cabrol
One of the best parts of the fall season is going apple picking. Take a look at the beautiful red paints that match this bushel of red apples.
This color looks a lot like the apples you pick in fall, but designer Thomas Burak suggests you take “one of those dated five- or six-arm metal chandeliers that you can find at flea markets or on eBay, and paint it lipstick red in a high-gloss finish. Top it off with cream-colored shades, and it will glam up any room.”
Who wouldn’t want to capture the beautiful red of this maple leaf?
Designer Ruthie Summers used this color on a chair with a high fretwork back, but you can use it to spice up trim or a wall and remind you of the beautiful leaves of fall.
