Four Color Palettes for Fall 2023

In just a few weeks the days will be noticibly shorter and the weather cooler. Since we spend more time indoors during the fall and winter it is natural to want to wrap our rooms in rich colors and warm tones. Over the past year I have found myself leaning into using color through the room on the walls and trim and adding a splash of color to the ceiling. In each of these palettes, we have paired each of the star colors with supporting colors, have fun with them, use a “trim” color for the walls and a darker hue on the trim. There are no rules when it comes to color.

Slate Teal

If you’re looking to transition your rooms from grey to more saturated colors, this peacock blue from Benjamin Moore will add a punch of color and relegate those greys to the background. BM calls it a marriage of blue and green, this dark teal exudes drama and decadence, I call it transformative.

Redpoint Living Room

Redend Point
SW 9081

Sherwin Williams color of 2023 is a dusky pink beige. This is a more mature rose tone than the pinks we have seen in the last few years. Redend Point hits the right notes between mauve, pink, brown and clay and creates a cozy neutral backdrop.

Truly Olive by Behr is a deep earthy green with a hint of warmth. Olive is a great nuetral that will blend nicely into a monochomatic green palette or as a perfect pairing for any of our main color recommendations for fall 2023.

Brinjal Living Room

No. 222

I admit I slept on this color for a long time. When I first became aware of it, grey was the thing and Brinjal just seemed so burgundy, but once I saw this installation by Travis Grimm in 2017 I realized I had underestimated the beauty of Brinjal. Like all Farrow & Ball colors, Brinjal color shifts. Sometimes a deep burgundy and in other lights a sophisticated plum it creates a rich cozy feeling in any room.
