Runway To Color Palette: Plum For Fall

One color that doesn’t get the credit it deserves is plum. It can feel like a intimidating color to use in a space. Because it is a vibrant hue, it needs to be paired with neutral tones. When pairing it with neutral tones, it has an easier time showcasing itself. You don’t want to have an over abundance of plum in your space. It’s better to introduce it in small portions. If you choose to use it in a large piece of furniture, don’t introduce it in much more unless it’s a vase or throw pillow. Using a plum wallpaper would be a striking addition to your space and would be a better choice than painting an entire wall plum. The pattern in the wallpaper will break up this color choice and allow it to not feel so overwhelming. Inspired by the outfit below, here’s the look:

Color Inspiration: Dress.
A hue like Grandeur Plum should be used sparingly. Try it one large piece, in wallpaper, accent wood furniture and small accessories.

Bonus:
Neutral colors like Summit Gray, Pure White and Raisin are perfect complimentary colors. If you want to add another vibrant color, try Rainstorm or Red Tomato.
