Colours of Fall
I am always amazed at the beauty of nature as Fall takes over the trees. As I went out for my morning jog I couldn't help but wander in amazement at the beauty around me. The more I thought about it the more intrigued in my own thoughts I became with how we express our love of fall colors within our lives regardless of the seasons.
One of the trends forecast for the fall 2012 in showtime magazine features the colors we all have come to recognize as earth tones. These are the colors we are now surrounded by in nature. Colors such as espresso tinged with red-orange, toasty browns and neutral creams. The look is organic.
The living space below shows a beautiful balance using different shades of persimmon. The lighter color on the ceiling is punctuated by the bolder color. The stronger shade is carried throughout the room as seen on the drapes and table creating a sense of balance. That same color is seen sprinkled throughout bringing all of the elements in the room together.
The sitting room below also incorporates the earth tones but in pastel colors. Balance in the use of color is seen as the peach color is picked up from the table skirt and used throughout the room.
Toasty browns used as accents, soft pumpkin and neutral creams all work beautifully to present a dining room that speaks of warm earth tones and reminiscent of the colors we see this time of year.
From Emerson et Cie, this beautiful room is a perfect example of nature in its glory during fall. The olive greens, chestnut browns tinged with a bit of espresso and orange-reds highlighted by a touch of gold is exactly what we see outside.
