Autumn, or fall as it’s also known in the northern hemisphere, draws inspiration from the rich and cozy colours we can find outdoors as nature prepares for the cold snap of winter.
Here are some of the most common colours associated with the drop in temperature.
When we think of autumn, red is one of the colours that immediately springs to mind, reflected in the rusty-red of the leaves falling from the deciduous trees. An intense and warm colour, red evokes feelings of passion and acts as a stimulant to make decisions. Reds with shades of brown are seen in both interior and fashion trends throughout the autumn season.
Orange is also a colour synonymous with autumn, especially as we crunch through the fallen leaves on our walks. Orange brings with it feelings of positivity and vibrancy, especially when combined with other autumn colours.
Perhaps we include yellow in our autumn palettes to channel the warmth of the sun as the temperature around us begins to drop. Yellow is one of the cheeriest colours and is adaptable to different complementary palettes. Yellows leaning towards a mustard shade are very popular for autumn-inspired interiors.
Using a natural and earthy tone like brown is sure to bring a sense of comfort to any space. Brown is often associated with honesty and health and will definitely bring a sense of calm to your home. Brown is also a great neutral tone to help tie in your other autumn inspired colours to your overall design scheme.
