Do you warm up your home for fall this time of year? What are your favorite color schemes? We all have our favorite colors and the two biggest areas that allow us to surround ourselves with them are fashion and home dÃ©cor.
Pantone, the color experts recently released their fall color picks for 2012. As usual, they donâ€™t disappoint, meaning there is something for everyone. Hereâ€™s a peek at this fallâ€™s hottest colors:
Surprisingly, these colors donâ€™t fall under the category of typical autumn colors, and thatâ€™s OK. Whatâ€™s great about this palette is that itâ€™s versatile. Not only do these colors work great for fall, but they work well for other seasons too.
It would be hard to use all the colors in your home, so weâ€™ve put together 4 color schemes we love and have also suggested some of our fabrics that would work well within that palette.
Color Scheme #1: French Roast, Honey Gold & Tangerine Tango
Suggested fabrics: Blooms (orange), Carson (brown) and Lucky (gold)
Not only are all three colors gorgeous, they work very well together. The boldness of Tangerine Tango (also voted Pantone color of the year for 2012) might be a bit much to cover the walls in, but itâ€™s perfect for complimentary fabrics and accent pieces around the home, like lamps and vases.
Color Scheme #2: Olympian Blue, Titanium & French Roast
Earth tones like gray and brown always look good together and set a solid foundation for other bursts of colors. One would think those colors are too masculine together, but when tied together with a color like a bold blue, the look changes dramatically.
Suggested fabrics: Kazoo (blue), Mendy (gray) and Glynn (earth)
Color Scheme #3: Rhapsody, Titanium & Bright Chartreuse
Since Rhapsody is a grayish purple, so it makes sense to pair it with a grey. With that said, a duo like that needs a good punch of color to make it exciting. This is why we picked Bright Chartreuse to round it out. The colors are fun and sophisticated and work all year round.
Suggested fabrics: Susan (purple), Allen (lime) and Super Silk (platinum)
Color Scheme #4: Pink FlambÃ©, Rose Smoke & Ultramarine Green
Pink and green go beautifully together, so seeing them on the Pantone 2012 fall list is no surprise. Sure, pink can be a very daring color for the home, but when done correctly, it makes a lovely statement.
Suggested fabrics: Kazoo (brick), O-Sunburst (petunia) and Jefferson (teal)
