Bringing Fall Pantone Colors into Your Home
After an active summer season full of adventures and family trips, the calming transition into the gorgeous fall season is just what we need to settle into the relaxing months and finish the year on a serene note. As the temperatures begin to fall, the leaves change colors, and a cool breeze fills the air, it’s the perfect time to give your home a seasonal design refresh and bring some of the natural tranquility indoors!
Each year, the Pantone Color Institute designates an Autumn/Winter Color Trend Report full of top shades and classic neutrals that are perfect for capturing the season. The 2020/2021 edition does not disappoint “offering a rich narrative” of “versatile, timeless color” as well as “strength and personality”. When these fabulous hues are brought in our favorite rooms and paired with the timeless beauty of Raintree hardwood floors, the results are nothing short of magical. Here are a few easy steps for bringing dazzling Fall Pantone colors into your inspired home:
Seasonal Area Rugs
In addition to extra softness underfoot and added floor protection in high traffic areas, rotating your area rugs is an easy, cost-effective way to bring in fall color. Whether you love a solid, earthy Sandstone (Pantone 16-1329) rug or a tartan or plaid that utilizes sultry Samba (Pantone 19-1662) red for upbeat energy, rugs instantly add visual interest and simply pop on top of wood floors. Rug patterns with fall motifs of leaves, acorns, and pinecones are also a perfect fit. Whether you opt for subtle or obvious fall visuals, indulge in area rugs with seasonal flair!
Rotate Items You Already Own!
Take a moment to look through the Autumn Color Trend Report and see if you own any furniture, furnishings, and other home items that match the color palette. All of the colors are designed to match each other within an overall design scheme so you can bring these pieces to the forefront of your favorite rooms! Maybe you have an ottoman in Military Olive (Pantone 19-0622) or a decorative vase in Classic Blue (Pantone 19-4052) that you can display more prominently. These are shades that connect to the great outdoors and match well with more traditional fall reds, oranges, and yellows.
Fabulous Fall Fabrics
Use the fabric elements in your rooms to bring in soft fall color that’s as cozy and inviting as it is appropriate for the season. Add in fuzzy fleeces or woven throws that incorporate undeniable fall shades like radiant Amberglow (Pantone 16-1350) and deep Fired Brick (Pantone 19-1337). Textured pillows in bold Green Sheen (Pantone 13-0648) and gentle Rose Tan (Pantone 16-1511) will spice up your couches and chairs. If you want to complete a more dramatic fall refresh, consider switching out your current drapes with a Pantone fall color! Cool tones like Ultramarine Green (Pantone 18-5338) and Sleet (Pantone 16-3916) bring in the tranquility of the season without overwhelming the space.
Here’s a great way to bring in elements of nature and fall color: Create beautiful fall arrangements! Whether it’s for a table in your foyer, a mantle, shelving, or a dining room centerpiece, you can use pieces of the great outdoors to capture the fall. Visit your nearest home furnishings store or shop online for a decorative bowl or another fall-themed accessory in shades like Magenta Purple (Pantone 19-2428) or Peach Nougat (Pantone 14-1220) that can hold dried pine cones. Use pumpkins and gourds in various sizes and shades to complete an arrangement that truly embodies the theme.
Once your home is decked out for fall, your 100% waterproof Raintree floors are ready to host family and guests without worry! Use this breathtaking transition in nature to give your interior an equally beautiful design refresh. Bring in soothing fall Pantone colors into your home and set the stage for more family memories throughout this special season.
