Again, Ethan Allen has furnished the Dream Home House, this gorgeous house is in Charleston, SC.

What do you think about the kitchen ceiling paint color?  With ceilings this high, I think it totally rocks!

I just love the fun and vibrant color scheme that is pulled throughout the whole entire house!  I have a feeling that painted furniture and this aqua blue and lime green scheme will make a comeback this year (yes, I do still know that the Pantone color of the year is emerald green).

Ahh I love fall time!  There is just something about the crisp morning air and the warm colors on the trees that just gets me, and I know I’m not alone here.  The leaves changing start to bring about the feeling of coziness that has been missing all summer.

Fall inspired color schemes are really starting to pop up everywhere!  Some colors with that “fall vibe” are coppery reds, pumpkins, burnt yellows, forest greens, and chocolaty browns.  If selecting a paint or accent color from these, be aware of the feeling you are trying to create…

Red can be a strong color that evokes energy, but with such a wide range of tones (from cherry, to crimson, to wine) there are lots of options to incorporate the color into any space.   There are tones that you can even be comfortable with year-round.

A burnt Orange can be warming but a more vibrant shade can be super modern and lively.

Forest Green is a great way to create an outdoorsy feeling and if accented with other warm fall color will create a “homey” feel as well.

If a more neutral color is desired for a main color, warm or rich brown will evoke a natural feel of wood or stone.

A strong note I will make is, do not feel obligated to use all these wonderful fall colors in only one space; Doing this will actually feel very chaotic.  There is a 3 color max rule for interior design and yes, this includes your neutral!

A way to incorporate these colors is to use them throughout the whole house or floor , and to add hints of the color in accents to create a smooth transition between rooms.  Adding pillows on the sofa and candles on the fireplace mantle, and then artwork on the dining room wall, and a rug in another room is how to create flow in color.

I hope this guide helps you to create the feeling of whichever aspect of fall you are trying to evoke in your home, whether it be the falling leaves, a forest stroll, or a harvest celebration.

Black is a color that just never seems to go out of style.  Just like that “little black dress” that has been in your closet forever and can be worn for any occasion, black in interiors can feel timeless, classic, or a little bit daring.

I just love the new article that Benjamin Moore posted on the “Color Chats” page about grey paint!  “Fifty Shades of Gray” by Michelle Zakko shows ONLY a select 50 examples of their 232 shades of grey paint colors.  I love the photos and the refrences are a helpful tool for visualizing color options.
