This fall 2016 Pantone colors are a wealth of exotic tones and global views. Certainly not a boring selection. I thought I would concentrate on a few that I personally love! Potters Clay, Lush Meadow and Spicy Mustard are just several that I think will go wonderful in rooms this fall. These are not colors for the timid and shy. These are bold and beautiful hues for those that love color bling!
First up, Lush Meadow. This is a new way to look at emerald green. Its hue is certainly bold and makes a statement – not your typical organic grass green. Look for more finesse when you add this to spaces. Lush Meadow will make a great accent color for a wall, a pillow or home accents of glassware and lighting in this flavor of green.
This room is nothing but gorgeous! Cristi Holcombe Interiors has got it all together. The pops of this rich green on the pillows and large chevron draperies gives life to a neutral space. With more emphasis on botanical in fabrics and decor this season, this life giving color will deliver a hint of Irish lovely green to rooms.
Next is Potter’s Clay. This color is a rich terracotta and earthy tone that is being seen more as a all over the room color for walls, pillows, leather furnishings and rugs. Potter’s Clay can act as a neutral base or accent so you are not limited.
Designer Shannon Malone brings an ethnic and spicy palette to this living area. I like the use of the terracotta colored paint stucco wall treatment. The patina aged brass framed inlay around the fire place with a touch of cayenne is unexpected and interesting. The velvet wing back chair just adds another layer of texture and softness which displays a more sophisticated view as well as warm and inviting.
