A guide to 6 most cozy fall paint colors
We’ll always appreciate the sunshine and sunny days, so saying goodbye to summer is always a little melancholy. But, with the end of summer comes the start of another of our favorite seasons: It’s October! You can sense the arrival of fall in the air.
The air is a little chilly, and you’ll be grabbing a sweatshirt in no time. It’s a season that’s all about the warm and fuzzy sensations! Because your clothes change with the seasons, why not do the same with your home decor? It’s a lot simpler than you might imagine!
You don’t have to completely redecorate your room. It may be as simple as bringing in some lovely autumn hues.
Fall-inspired paint color palette
When thinking about how the season makes you feel, it’s a good place to start when looking for ideas for your home’s fall transition. When you think of the weather, your favorite seasonal activities, or even your clothes, what comes to mind? Warm and cozy are the first phrases that come to mind for many people (including ourselves). That means you’ll be looking for colors with a warm undertone, such as red, orange, yellow, or brown.
But those aren’t your only choices! To help balance everything out, you’ll need some complementary cooler hues. Take a glance outside your window for more ideas! Warm hues can be seen in the changing leaves, but you’ll also notice colder tones in tree bark, the sky on overcast days, and the grass as it slowly returns to life.
Consider how you use each place and what type of emotion you want to generate when you’re spending time there when deciding which rooms to bring those fall colors into. In rooms where people congregate, fall colors tend to work nicely. A formal living room or dining room, a quiet den, a little reading nook, or a family room are all possibilities.
The best 6 colors we picked for you
While the changing leaves are an obvious source of color inspiration, most people find the tones of red, yellow, and orange to be too vivid. To get that fall vibe, you don’t have to adhere to overly bright colors. We’ve put up a list of some of our favorite colors to get you started!
On a chilly morning, nothing beats a cup of coffee for warmth and comfort. We can’t think of anything! Mocha is a brown color with a creamy appearance that works well as a backdrop for accent items with brighter colors. It’s a lovely neutral that adds warmth while still giving you a lot of options.
It pairs beautifully with fall oranges, reds, and yellows, but it also goes with colors from all seasons, so you could easily switch out some accent items to give your space a new look at any time of year.
Green is always a good choice for walls since it offers a relaxing impact. When you’re settling in for some relaxing time at home, that’s precisely what you want! Natural wood tones, earthy brown colors, and buttery yellows go well with olive.
Again, it’s a hue that screams fall but could equally be worn in any other season. A dab of pink and creamy beige might easily be used to create a spring palette.
You can’t go wrong with eggplant if you want something a little more dramatic. This majestic hue of purple adds drama to any room without becoming overbearing. It would look fantastic in a formal dining room or living area that is used for entertainment. Darker wood tones, olive green, and softer neutrals like gray or creamy white go well with it.
Ochre is a great choice if you want something vibrant. The hue derives from the same-named natural clay earth pigment and comes in a variety of tones ranging from yellow to orange. We prefer a little yellower variant since it adds a splash of color while yet maintaining the rustic vibe.
Darker colors, such as taupe-gray or dark brown, work well with it to help ground the space. Light gray and a very soft buttery yellow can be used to brighten it up a touch.
Wheat is a lovely neutral option for the all-over wall color for individuals who prefer to keep things simple. It’s almost white, but with a little more depth. Lighter hues of blue, silvery gray, sage green, and light brown look great against it. A creamy-white with a tinge of yellow is ideal for adding a little more warmth!
Of course, nothing says autumn like a splash of crimson! A brilliant, blazing red wall, on the other hand, can be overbearing, especially in a tiny room. Try something reminiscent of your favorite glass of red wine for a more snug and comforting spin on this classic shade!
This cherry red has a lot of depth to it. It’s bright, yet not overbearing. Creamy white, light beige, taupe, deep blue, and butternut yellow are all good matches for this color.
