It’s always a little sad to see summer go because we’ll always love the sun and warm weather. But the end of summer also means the beginning of our other favorite season: fall. Fall is in the air when it gets here. The air is a little bit cool, and you’ll find yourself reaching for a sweater all of a sudden. This time of year is all about feeling cozy!

Your wardrobe does change with the seasons, so why not change your home’s decor to match? It’s a lot easier than you might think. You don’t have to change everything about your room. It can be as easy as adding some beautiful fall colors.
COLORS REMINISCENT OF FALL
When you’re trying to figure out how to change your home for fall, it can help to think about how the season makes you feel. When you think about the weather, your favorite seasonal activities, or even your wardrobe, what comes to mind? Warm and cozy are the first things that come to mind for many people, including us. That means you should mostly look for colors with warm undertones, such as red, orange, yellow, and brown.
But those aren’t the only choices you have! You’ll need some cool colors that go with it to make it look good. If you need more ideas, just look out your window. You’ll see warm colors in the changing leaves, but you’ll also see cooler tones in the bark on trees, the sky on gray days, and the grass as it slowly comes back to life.
When you’re deciding which rooms to add fall colors too, think about how you use each space and how you want to feel when you’re spending time there. Most rooms where people gather look good with fall colors. It could be a formal living room or dining room, a small reading nook, a family room, or a cozy den.
COMFORTABLE PAINT COLORS FOR FALL: 6
Even though the colors of the changing leaves are easy to see, most people find those shades of red, yellow, and orange to be a little too bright. You don’t have to use bright colors to feel like it’s fall. We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite colors to give you some ideas.
What is more cozy and comforting than a cup of coffee on a cool morning? Nothing comes to mind! Mocha is a brown color that looks creamy and makes the perfect background for brighter colors in your accent pieces. It’s a beautiful neutral color that adds warmth and gives you a lot of options. It goes well with the oranges, reds, and yellows of fall, but it also goes well with colors from every season. You could easily switch out some accent pieces to change the look of your space throughout the year.
Olive green is a great color for walls because it makes people feel calm. That’s exactly what you want when you’re ready to relax at home. Olive goes well with shades of natural wood, earthy browns, and buttery yellows. Again, it’s a color that screams fall but also looks good in any other season. You could easily make a spring palette by adding a splash of pink and a creamy beige.
If you want something much more dramatic, eggplant is a great choice. This royal shade of purple adds a lot of drama to any room, but it doesn’t feel too much. It would look great in a formal dining room or living room where people come and go. It looks good with darker wood tones, olive green, and softer neutrals like gray or creamy white.
Ochre is a great color to use if you want something bright. The color comes from a natural clay earth pigment with the same name, and its shades range from yellow to orange. We love a version that is a little bit more yellow because it adds a pop of color while still keeping that earthy look. It goes well with darker colors, like taupe-gray or dark brown, which help to ground the space. If you want to make it a little lighter, you can pair it with light gray and a very soft buttery yellow.
Wheat is a beautiful neutral option for an all-over wall color for people who like to keep things simple. It’s almost white, but it has a little bit of color to it. It’s the perfect background for lighter shades of blue, silvery gray, sage green, and light brown. For a little more warmth, a creamy white with a hint of yellow is perfect!
Red is, of course, the best color for fall. But a bright, fiery red wall can feel too much, especially in a small room. Try something that reminds you of your favorite glass of red wine for a cozier, more comforting take on this classic color. This berry-red color has some depth to it. It’s bright, but it doesn’t get in the way. This color looks good with creamy white, light beige, taupe, deep blue, and butternut yellow.
