Get Inspired by Fall Color Palettes

Can you believe that we’ve already celebrated Labor Day? We can’t either. As the season of Pumpkin Spice everything kicks off, and the leaves begin to change color, our interior design disposition undergoes a subtle seasonal shift as well. If you’re looking to transform your home with the vibrant hues and earthy autumn color palettes, we’ve got the season’s best colors for your painting project.

While we’re sad to see summer go, we love to see the character behind the rich, warm tones that embody nature’s changing colors while setting the scene for cozy family time and holiday entertaining. Some of these fall palettes might surprise you, and if you’re not ready to commit to painting a full room, these colors can help guide smaller-scale projects like painting an accent wall or trim. At the very least, we hope these colors inspire you to think about accessories, like throws or cushions, you can use to transform your space for the season.

We’ve divided the colors into distinct categories to make it easy for you to find the perfect color scheme for your room with swatches you can click and explore with. So, whether you’re looking for the bright colors of the leaves changing or more muted, earthy tones, there’s a Benjamin Moore paint color for you. If you see something you like or if you need more information, check out the Benjamin Moore selection at Janovic – The Color Authority. It’s time to start fall-ing in love with the colors of the season!

Vivid Colors of the Leaves Changing Inspire Autumn Palettes

One of the greatest signifiers that fall is here is when the leaves begin changing colors, as splashes of bright colors spatter the countryside and begin to cover what was once the green grass below. These pops of color can add so much personality to your home while brightening up tired spaces. Here are some of the top fall colors inspired by the changing autumn leaves.

Dynamic Orange Color Combinations

Orange brings excitement and enthusiasm to any space. While we don’t recommend going ahead and painting your entire living room orange, it can be used in many other areas of your home. Think of an accent wall in your dining room, exercise room, or even your office as great places to utilize the dynamic Benjamin Moore oranges. Colors like Fall Harvest, Autumn Orange, Autumn Cover and Harvest Moon are the season’s colors. With only slight variations between the four, you can choose the perfect fall color combinations for your space. Orange you glad we shared these amazing Benjamin Moore paint colors?

Vivid Yellow and Red Color Schemes

We’re not talking about highlighter yellow here, but darker, more elegant hues that resemble the marigolds and sunflowers of the fall season. Consider a splash of Delightful Golden for your kitchen or Honeywheat for your powder room to brighten up a room. These colors may be bright, but they’ll easily transition well into winter by pairing well with reds and green accents. Plus, they’ll give you a splash of sunlight during the months when the sun shines less. Consider Yellow Marigold in a space where you may not be ready for the opulent oranges we shared above. This shade is a softer color with a cozy feeling that will look great with your Thanksgiving spread.

If you’re thinking deep reds this season, then you just read our mind! There’s nothing cozier and more sophisticated than hosting family in a dining room freshly painted in Dinner Party. Reds provide the perfect backdrop for the vibrant colors of pumpkins and yellow corn. Since colors like Maple Leaf Red and Geranium are so deep and bold, they’re perfect for an accent wall or for larger rooms like two-story family rooms or areas filled with windows.

Color Inspiration from Muted Earthy Tones of Foliage at the Brink of Winter

If you’re not ready to go the bright, bold path inspired by the changing leaves of autumn, we invite you to explore the earthy tones that embody the season after the leaves have fallen and winter is looming near. These colors are characterized by beautiful browns and greens that can refresh your interior while also preparing your space with color combinations not only the fall but the long winter months ahead.

Captivating Browns Color Palettes

Brown colors don’t have to be boring. With many fall shades to provide color inspiration to satisfy your vision, Benjamin Moore captures the essence of the fall foliage with several of their seasonal shades (although you can get these colors year-round!). With colors named Acorn and Firewood, how can you not think fall? These colors are softer browns that make any interior space feel warm and cozy. Or imagine curling up in front of the living room fireplace amidst the backdrop of Autumn Leaf or waking up late on a Sunday surrounded by Greenfield Pumpkin. These are both medium brown hues that make any space inviting. If you want to go a little darker, Fallen Leaf is the color for you. Take a cue from nature and get inspired by these neutral brown shades that are anything but neutral.

Fall is the season of gratitude, and we’re so grateful for greens that resemble the deep evergreen trees, or the moss revealed once the leaves fall to the ground. You can bring these greens, like Mossy Oak or Hunter Green, from the exterior to your home’s interior with a little help from Janovic. Green evokes a feeling of abundance and renewal, which is perfect for the fall season! If you want a lighter green, check out Saybrook Sage for any room of your home.
