Fast Forward to Fall

By Christa Terry

Getting inspired by autumn’s arrival does not, I repeat, does not have to involve miniature pumpkins, wreathes made of woven hay, and a harvest theme so overt it candies your corn every time you walk into a room. If you’re a fan of fall, let your paint do the talking instead, with colors like these from Behr.

At the same time, however, don’t feel you have to stick to warm earth tones and brilliant oranges. Remember that before the flora puts on its pre-winter mantle, trees and shrubs boast foliage that is a mix of the aforementioned colors and summertime’s greens. Don’t be afraid to play around with that fact by adding unexpectedly green greens to your palette, like this color scheme by Valspar.

On the other hand, combining colors in a room using paint can sometimes be a scary proposition. Who wants to have to paint all over again when it turns out a combo just doesn’t quite work. I recommend Better Homes and Gardens’ New Color Schemes Made Easy, which is an easy-to-follow guide that can help novices get it right the first time.
