Hello! Currently it is 90 something degrees outside and it does not really feel like fall is anywhere near except for the tiniest chill to the air in the mornings. Something about that chill to the air this morning has me thinking about those warmer color palettes of fall, and all of the pumpkin and fall-esque décor.
Fall is such a special time of year for me now. It’s more than holidays, sweater, and pumpkin spice (though I do love all of those things). It’s when both of my babies were born. There is just something about this time of year that allows me to vividly remember those last days of being pregnant, and them being born. Those fall colors and decorations are what they came home to.
That being said, holiday décor to me can tend to get a little cluttered and over the top cheesy. I love to be festive, but I hate having a million different clashing colors all over my house. I want my home to bring me peace and clarity through the seasons.
Fall décor does not have to be just traditional orange pumpkins and scarecrows. If you start by selecting a color palette that fits your home, it can feel beautiful, festive, and peaceful.
Paint chips are a great way to visualize colors together. Holidays are a great time to add in a pop of another color and putting the paint chips together can be a great way to see how they will look together without having to buy a bunch of stuff.
Here are some color combos I came up with to inspire your fall décor!
Albuquerque Fall Color
This is for those of you who have a more traditionally New Mexican style home and color palette. My turquoise lovers I’m looking at you! It can be fun to bring the outside in, and an Albuquerque Fall is definitely gorgeous. Here I’ve brought in the turquoise blue sky and doors and windows you see all over the city, the yellow cottonwood leaves, the red chile pepper ristras, and the sandy tan of the desert dirt.
Traditional Warmth Fall Color
Those of you that crave the traditional pumpkin colors of fall, this one’s for you. Vary the shades of pumpkin and golden yellow to get all of the traditional fall feels.
I love the unconventional and unexpected look of fall décor utilizing blues and grays. It you tend to shy away from the rich warm colors, this can be a great way to add a pop of color for you. It would also be a great palette for a fall beach home that may feel off with a bunch of orange pumpkins.
Probably my favorite fall color palette this year is this contrasting navy blue with a coppery rust color and this tawny greige. It just feels sort of dersert-y, sort of upscale, sort of festive. It’s just a dreamy color combo. It you utilize these colors please send me photos!
The No Color Color Palette
Varying shades of white pumpkins together can be gorgeous for fall! For anyone who wants to keep their neutral colors at all costs go for it with the white! Add in some greenery and some deeper grays, tans, and black to create some depth and interest!
I could go on and on here with the Fall color palettes! I love this season so much and I can’t wait to start decorating!
