2018 Fall Color I’m Crushing On!

Fall color trends typically include a palette of rich jewel tones and 2018 isn’t much different, according to Pantone’s choices. One color I’m particularly crushing on is a beautiful shade of burgundy – also called Pear Red.

Although fall is still a couple months away, I’m already thinking about my autumn decorating scheme. After I saw a floral arrangement in shades of burgundy, wine, and orange in the Pottery Barn catalog, I knew my fall palette had been decided upon.

Whether it leans more toward a berry red, or an purple red, burgundy is a flexible color and I can’t wait to incorporate it into my home once summer winds down (although I hate to say goodbye to summer).

I recently purchased a few wine-colored pillow covers from Pottery Barn. Hmm. Maybe that’s why I’m crushing on this color – it reminds me of red wine!

This collection of photos from Houzz shows that red wines and burgundies look great in every room.

There’s just something about this color that’s captivated my heart.

This photo clinched this fall color choice for me. I have pottery pieces in that exact same shade of green so I plan to use them in my fall decor this year.

Combined with purple it looks a bit royal on sunroom windows.

So I’m anxious to start planning and have several fall decor posts coming up toward the end of August and through September and October!

    These are lovely and i love them, hope you don’t mind if i pick these colors too, of course no one will see them but family and friends. Thanks Jennifer for these ideas.

  2. I’m afraid that red painted walls are too much for me. I’ve noticed in photos of actual homes for sale on real estate listings, that red painted walls, especially in a kitchen, do not take kindly to anything other than perfect decor and lighting – no disarray, no clutter, no normal living that we all experience. The photos that you posted are amazing, but we all know they are styled for photos.
    With that said, I love those luscious jewel-toned wine red colors in accessories and accent pieces in fall and winter, and usually warm up the small room where I sit at my computer with dark red throws and pillows.

    I’m looking forward to the upcoming posts featuring your fall decor. You have such amazing, down to earth taste.
