Already thinking about how to jazz up your home with the latest fall trends and newest colors? Even in the dead of summer, it's hard to keep from thinking ahead, especially because autumn décor can be so dreamy. This year, get a head start on the new season with the fall colors you'll be seeing a lot of soon.
"At the International Home + Housewares show, Pantone Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman made a long-anticipated announcement when she shared the upcoming color trends for 2018," said Martha Stewart. "Eight color groups were announced: Verdure, Resourceful, Playful, Discretion, Far-fetched, Intricacy, Intensity and TECH-nique."
This Elderberry Wine paint from Benjamin Moore falls under "Discretion," and is an unexpected hit of color in a built-in that brings new life to the space.
Millennial pink isn't gone, and, in fact, it's still going strong with demographics far beyond millennials. But a hot new shade of pink is gaining on it. Benjamin Moore's Tissue Pink is a good place to start to incorporate this hue into your home.
We love the rosy bed in this room from Decoholic, especially with the pink contrasted against the grey and metallic accents.
Speaking of metallic, it's not going anywhere, according to International Color Expert Leatrice Eiseman. "Metallics we know are classic," she said on Home Accents Today. "But they have really moved over into neutrals." We certainly see no signs of these shiny metals waning. Same goes for the iridescent trend: "The human eye can absolutely not avoid anything iridescent, pearlized or translucent, since being intrigued by shimmering, shiny objects is "intrinsic to human development."
If you're looking to bring metallics into your home for fall, today's finish du jour is brass.
Tired of that all-white kitchen? This'll give your place a boost. Show off that marble with a dark contrast by splashing deep, rich green - a top color trend for fall - on the walls and cabinets.
"Forget farmhouse white and gray! This season, it's all about drama," said House Beautiful. "PPG Paints, Glidden Paints, and Olympic Paints & Stains all announced cozy shades of black as their 2018 Color of the Year - Black Flame (PPG1043-7), Deep Onyx (00NN 07/000), and Black Magic (OL116), respectively."
Moody black is included under the dark paint umbrella, but when it comes to black, it's not a glossy finish that's being courted. Get ready to go matte.
Not ready to take the plunge on the walls? Black matte home décor is everywhere right now.
Chocolate brown is also on the rise, providing a rich alternative to all that grey that's been everywhere over the last several years and "the all-white, minimalistic homes that have taken over Pinterest," said CountryLiving. Their article titled "Brown is the new black" notes that, "trends are cyclical, and now, we're seeing homeowners embracing earthier shades and a more maximalist style—both of which can either cozy up more modern interiors or enhance historic woodwork of older homes. Basically, brown is a win-win-and anything but basic."
