Purple Reigns Supreme!

We have always been fond of the regal and majestic look that purple brings along with it. While each design expert picks his or her own favorite shade of purple, you are free to choose one that fits your own desires best. Whether it is majestic Royal Purple or the gentle Thistle, cool lavender or vibrant violet, the color immediately adds sophistication and a refined contemporary look, Purple has always been associated with luxury and opulence and a hint of purple in the bedroom instantly lifts the vibe of the room.

The elegance and affluence of purple is unmatched. Taking over interiors across the world this fall, purple in its many hues and shades can be an equally appealing color once the chill of winter sets in. This obviously makes going with purple a sensible choice. Use it to create a new accent walls or usher it in by adding a few throw pillows. Purple continues its reign at the top of the interior design color palette.

Passionate Ruby Red

Red is another great color for the season. If you think about it, the color makes perfect sense as a fall shade that goes into winter. The color brings passion and energy to any room that it graces.  Borrowed from the hues of a rich ruby, you will see the benefits of incorporating the beautiful red vibes once the time for Thanksgiving and Christmas arrive. Remember though, that the flavor of the season is audacious and rich colors. Do not opt for the jaded and toned down shades of red that will end up ruining the joyous appeal of the season.

Grey is the new White

Seems like there has been a whole new interest in the color grey since the 50 Shades of Grey flew off of book shelves! Grey offers a nice variation from the usual pristine white that is used as a canvas to paint lovely interiors. Pick a lovely and light tone of grey as the darker ones are often harder to work with. Considering the selection of beautiful and jewel-toned colors that we have on offer for this fall,  grey is indeed the color that can play the perfect backdrop for them all. With lush and radiant hues popping out of a stress-free grey backdrop, you can rest assured that you have the perfect look.

Lighting is an essential factor that you need to be careful with, if smart and sleek grey becomes a part of your home’s interior. Wrong lighting can easily create a dingy and damp look, which looks all the more unpleasant during fall and winter. Combine an array of floor lamps, table lights and recessed lighting fixtures to create a vibrant look.

Natural Moss Green

Emerald has been one of the sparkling gems of 2013 interior color selections. But, we believe it is time to be bolder and stray away from the conventional. How about revving that green up a notch of two with the nice Olive Green? This lovely shade of green is making quite an impact even in the world of fashion, with some of the big names in the industry turning towards that vivid natural green look. The new chic, Moss Green is another sensible addition as it will come pretty handy once the festive decorations start coming out of the attic.

One can pair most greens with bright red to create a classic combination with a trendy twist or use it along with Fuchsia for a calming natural vibe. It works well as a standalone color as well and should serve you well even beyond this fall and winter.

Fresh and Vivacious Fuchsia

We did predict a long time back that Fuchsia was soon going to be one of the hot and trendy colors of interior design. And seemingly, that time has arrived. With clean and contemporary lines and muted tones dominating contemporary home designs, Fuchsia is the perfect shade to light it all up. Thanks to its intense presence, the color is best used in moderation. Make sure that the backdrop is as uncluttered and neutral as possible, to highlight your Fuchsia accents elegantly.

If you want drama, freshness and a touch of playfulness to come together, the Fuchsia is the shade for you. Pick a shade that is as close to the hues of a natural Fuchsia flower. Couple it with some natural greens and you have a cheerful and spirited look; borrowed from nature.
