Col­ors for the Sea­sons

Don’t let the dread of tear-down pre­vent you from go­ing all out this Hal­loween. “I’m keep­ing the striped porch all year,” says Ju­lia. “Black-and-white pat­terns are ver­sa­tile, but still fun!” For a chic Hal­loween theme that will eas­ily work for other seaso

Black and white are two neu­tral shades that go well with any color scheme and sea­son. Add deep pur­ples, reds and or­anges for fall, and bright col­ors in the sum­mer. It matches ev­ery­thing!

Gold is a great ac­cent color for mul­ti­ple sea­sons, and it makes any style chic. Gold branches work well for fall, while gold or­na­ments will shine in the win­ter.

Brown adds a nat­u­ral el­e­ment with wooden pieces. A dark shade is an ef­fec­tive neu­tral for fur­ni­ture if you don’t want to go black, and it will blend with flower pat­terns, act­ing as a softer neu­tral in spring and sum­mer.

Green, whether dark or light, has the per­fect spring/fall bal­ance. Dark green will blend with the darker neu­trals, and light green will trans­late well into sum­mer green­ery and flow­ers. Dur­ing win­ter, you’ll just have to add red for a nice Christ­mas color pal­ette.
