We all know about NYFW and are waiting with anticipation for designers to showcase what is hot for the upcoming Fall season. So, in this post I am going to share with you the hottest color trends of the Fall 2018 season and how you can incorporate them in your home!
Most times trends come and go and it really isn't worth the investment, that's why they're called trends. But, when it comes to color in your home I take a different stance on that subject because color will never go out of style and it all depends on how you put it together. Let's take a look at what's going to be "hot" on the runways and ways you can incorporate them in your home!
"Fashion is what you buy, style is what you do with it."
Introducing the colors:
The above quote is right on point! It's all about what you do with your pieces that creates style. Same thing applies to your home decor.
Red Pear and Valiant Poppy:
Two totally different shades of red, one much deeper then the other. Ok, some people are scared of red and that's totally fine, but if you're a burgundy lover then there you go! Red Pear is the perfect color for you to add in your home with either drapes, accent chairs, throw pillows or if you're not afraid, a sofa. This color doesn't necessarily have to be the main palette in your home but treat it as an accent. Here is an accent chair that is a great example!
Valiant Poppy - is a much brighter red and again doesn't have to be a featured color in your home, but a supporting one. Moreover, I love a good red door! I think that packs a punch for your home and is a great indicator for good Feng Shui. Two pluses!
Another way to bring in valiant poppy is a really neat accent table. A side table next to your accent chair, or a console table. Now, what you don't want to do is pair both colors next to each other!
Nebulas blue - is along the lines of a cobalt blue, which comes back every single season! This is probably my favorite blue color out there. I think that this color could be easily a painted wall, a sofa, accent chair, accessories... I mean the list can go on and on! To me this color is a neutral. Here are some examples of it.
Ceylon Yellow and Martini Olive:
Ceylon yellow - can be spun two ways a mustard yellow or just a deep true yellow with green hues. I especially love a good mustard color sweater for the fall and winter months! Ok, back to the home...This color really resinates with the mid-century style because of how it plays on with the motif. Ceylon yellow is great to add all sorts of other complimentary colors to accent it, probably because it is a primary color. I don't know that I would utilize this color as paint, yellow can be really overwhelming on a wall. But, definitely stick to accessories such as vases or figures in this color if you don't want to bring it in as a furniture piece.
Martini Olive - is a fantastic staple that I would say bring it in as a sofa! That's all.
Ultra Violet and Crocus Petal:
Now this is definitely for the purple lovers out there! I am not one of them, but that's ok I can still talk about it. The reason why I say that is because neither of these colors are plum or a wine type of shade, they're purple and one is a pastel purple. However, if you're a true fan of purple then you can definitely pair these two colors together because they will have a strong contrast. However if you're on the fence about them but still like the color, then I recommend a couple of throw pillows mixed into your assortment. As you may or may not know, purple is a great color to pair with grays. So, if your sofa or accent chair or even bedding is in the gray family then either purple will look great!
If you do decide to pair both of these colors together then I suggest you add some warmth to it like wood tones or browns and oranges to anchor that color down. Also, not make it so it seems like all you want everyone to notice is how much purple you have in your home.
Quetzal Green and Limelight:
Quetzal green - is a blue green color. It is great if you enjoy jewel tones in general. I think this is a really pretty color if you have the right fabric for it. I don't think a cotton material will actually show the richness of this color, so sticking to a velvet or a silk blend for your furniture pieces will definitely give it that chic look that it deserves. I think this color would be beautiful as a focal accent chair, dining chair, or even a desk chair depending on how your space is.
Limelight - would be a great color in a kids room, a nice desk chair, or a color to bring into a patio or sunroom. I don't think this color would be a furniture piece that would stand the test of time. It's very neon and that can sometimes be a cumbersome to your space.
Russet Orange and Meerkat:
Russet orange - plays on the warmer side of orange, so I think this can be more manageable within your space. This is a great color to mix into your decor if you like the global, boho, eclectic, or even modern motif. It can be mixed with a lot of colors that were mentioned above, especially red pear. This is a color that can be a great painted wall in an office or a kids room. I wouldn't paint it in a living room because it's kind of too Mac and Cheesy. HAHAHAHHAAHHA! Again, this can be a sofa in a muted tone, accent chair, throw pillows or puffs/stools. To me this type of orange just reminds me of a very retro color.
Meerkat - this one is easy! Leather, leather, leather in anything! That's all I have to say about that.
I hope you enjoyed reading about how to incorporate the new Fall 2018 color trends! I think a lot of these colors will be around for quite some time, so don't be afraid to bring them into your home. If you need help doing so, you know where I am!
