Col­ors to help put you in the mood for au­tumn

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - - HOMEFINDER - By Jil­lian Knox Fin­ley

The chang­ing of the leaves has us day­dream- ing over new home hues. From jewel tones to over­sat­u­rated or­anges, au­tum­nal tones bring a burst of drama and nat­u­ral al­lure to any space. As in­te­rior re­vamps go, switch­ing up paint col­ors via a bold ac­cent wall or full­blown makeover is a cost­ef­fec­tive and wildly trans- for­ma­tive de­sign pro­ject. You’ll def­i­nitely get plenty of bang for your buck.

Cap­i­tal­ize on the crisp, clean weather, and get your home com­pletely turned out in time to wel­come in the hol­i­days. Now’s the time to feather your nest. Win- ter­iscom­ing.

Blood or­ange

This sea­son we’re lov­ing or­anges with a kick of red. When paint­ing with brights, sam­ple mul­ti­ple swatches. Nat­u­ral light and square footage will make a ma­jor im­pact on the over­all aes- thetic.

Petrol blue

One of our fa­vorite on­line vin­tage sources, 1stdibs, first alerted us to this par­tic­u­lar shade of azure hue. The dusty and dra­matic blue is el­e­gant and strik­ing with- out ever veer­ing into melo­drama. The sub­limely sub­tle hue is en­tirely hand­some.

Con­crete gray

We’ve been re­ally feel- ing con­crete this year. The pared-down ar­chi­tec­tural vibe of the raw ma­te­rial lends a struc­tured pre­ci­sion and raw, dy­namic ap­peal to mod- ern ac­ces­sories and fur­ni­ture. Light gray chan­nels sooth­ing, tran­quil notes that feel con­sis­tently edited and poised.

Terra-cotta

One Fine Stay’s Via Zara in North­ern Rome is the stuff dreams and pass­port stamps are made of. Nod to the crisp fall weather by bring­ing nat­u­ral, out­door-cen­tric hues indoors. We es­pe­cially love the soul­ful and un­ex­pected com­bi­na­tion of earthy ter­ra­cotta with lus­trous teal.

Ash blond

Neu­trals are eter­nal. The poise and re­straint of the per­fect blond is peren­ni­ally chic and un­de­ni­ably time­less.

This sea­son, we’re all about sub­tle tan shades on the cooler side of the spec­trum. It’s beige with a side of dusty, over­cast ap­peal.

Matte black

Black doesn’t have to be se­ri­ous and moody. Matte black walls evoke iconic high­con­trast ap­peal while still keep­ing the vibe ex­u­ber- ant and re­laxed. This sea- son, we’re mak­ing a strong case for adding in a dose of dark art cool.

Chalk white

Are we ever go­ing to get over the all-white space aes­thetic? No.

We’ll never let go. If you share in our affin­ity for pure white a bodes (the serene so­phis­ti­ca­tion, the un­fet­tered glam­our, the bright calm…) feel free to wax po­etic along with us via a fresh coat of chalk white paint. It re­mains the ul­ti­mate re­fresh.
