Fall into color...

Wouldn't you like this look for your living room? The Bernhardt sofa and blue patterned accent bench work so well with the blue walls and accent pieces in this living room. The blues contrast with the gorgeous hard wood floors for a finished designer look. The color blue, particularly Olympian Blue, is showing up everywhere in interior design for fall. It exudes a cool, calm serenity that reminds us of the water. It is inviting and cheerful and works well with so many other colors. Olympian blue is just one of many colors predicted by the color experts at Pantone to steal the show. As you can see the colors are bright and welcoming. They include the color of the year…Tangerine Tango, but that is not the only color vying for center stage. The rest of the palette is vivid and ready to take the stage was well. A few other colors that are entering the scene this fall are blues with purple tones and rich deep purples reminiscent of plums and red wine. (color chart courtesy of Pantone.com)

This year, the fall color palette has something for everyone. Gray, Blue, Green, Pink, Purple and Gold are all in the lineup. The trend with colors this fall is to highlight a bright color and bring it into a room  in a bold way. On the walls or even on a large piece of furniture like an upholstered sofa, color is everywhere. Bright colors are not just for accents anymore.

That said...if you are more comfortable bringing in smaller doses of color, start small and work your way up. The most important thing to remember is to pick colors that you like. Colors can be soothing and help you relax and feel at home. They can also energize you and help you to stay motivated. Whatever you do...don’t pick colors just because they are the “in” colors. Select ones that you like and make you feel comfortable and at ease.

Seasonal colors have words associated with them that bring you back to the emotion of the weather or change in season. For fall, descriptions like crisp, cool, brisk, and breezy, all evoke the change in season. Seasonal items like apples, leaves and pumpkins bring images of color to mind. These words paired together bring to mind images of fall colors like crisp green apples, or orange, red and yellow autumn leaves.

With the temperatures dipping at night, entertaining will soon switch from casual nights outside to inside activities and parties. Fall is a great time to think about making some updates to your furniture and decor. Whether you're refreshing your living room, dining room or bedrooms, Belfort Furniture can help you create a beautiful new look. Enjoy the change in seasons...Happy Fall!
