The Hottest Trends for You and Your Home

8 Painted Walls We’re Crushing on this Fall

Halloween costumes, fuzzy blankets, and pumpkin lattes can be found everywhere you look this time of year. It’s time to don tights, boots, and your favorite fall jacket. But as you snuggle into a cable-knit sweater, shouldn’t your home be able to cozy up how it looks too? These rich, saturated paint trends do just that and more.

Better than Basic Black and Blue 

1. Navy: the surprising neutral. If it’s dark enough, or muted enough, navy can make for the best wall color, no matter the decor. This Brit+Co jewel-tone round up includes a beautiful pale navy bedroom. The tone is neutral enough for a deep navy headboard, black wood work, and white, royal blue, teal, and purple accents.

2. SFGirlByBay blogger and photographer Victoria Smith visited fellow blogger Anna Dorfman at her home in New York. Victoria was all about her friends taste in saturated colors. This black wall was one of many in Anna’s 1891 home. Though black is usually used as the accent color, here, it does a lovely job of taking the lead as the main backdrop, just speckled with white and wood throughout.

New Neutrals: Gray or Gray?

3. Who says your neutrals have to belong to the white family? For this library, a warm-gray paint color is infused with a hint of purple. It’s the perfect color for pairing with velvet reading chairs, an old book, and a cup of hot chocolate.

4. That isn’t the only gray you need to consider, either. Jessica from Freshome makes a case for any gray on every wall. This toasty charcoal pairs well with cream walls and ceiling. Bits of tan and brown become the color pop throughout the room, rather than the accent wall.

Greens with Envy

5. Prairie Days Design creator Kaleigh is smitten with green rooms. We aren’t talking about Christmas green here — think rich forest greens that have a way of melting your heart and making metallics pop. Gold, silver, and copper sit happily as mixed metals with the help of this botanical-inspired green wall.

6. A mix of green, blue, and gray come together to create this velvety dark-green wall. Keeping the decor in the room on the monochromatic side makes this den all the cozier. Design Shuffle rounded up nine of their favorite green rooms. This one is our fave; what’s yours?

Walls that Won’t Stop Blushing 

7. Another fan of the monochromatic room is Bianca Hall, the mind behind French for Pineapple. Whether pink, navy, green or gold, she’s all over it if the room colors match. This pink-hued marsala wall is enveloping with it’s twinning-color sofa and ottoman. Let’s grab a wool throw blanket and snuggle up there!

8. Quartz is expected in the kitchen. At least the countertop material is. This color — rose quartz — on the other hand is quite unexpected in the working space. The pale pink has been a favorite in fashion, design, and of course paint. We’re loving it and hope it lasts a long time.

These rich, saturated colors are so hot right now, it would be silly to pass up the opportunity to have them in your home before the cold months are upon us. As we enter this fall season, be prepared with your flannel, fleece, and a room richly colored enough to keep you cozy.

Until next time,
