Are you feeling ready to bring FALL COLOR into your house but want to make sure it'll feel right beyond a season? These 4 colors trends have some legs to stand on. We'll tell you why.
1. dusted blue
Dusted blue takes the world's favorite color (plain ol' sweet little blue) and neutralizes it just enough to work in large spaces. Because blue is so universally loved, just about any variation will have legs beyond a season, a year, or even a decade.
Terracotta derives from the natural world, making it a perfect antidote to our increasingly digital culture. As long as we continue to expand technologically, the counterbalance will also continue. Expect long term staying power from colors like terracotta, green, and anything else that brings the outdoors in.
You can go surprisingly big with this color, but when used as a smaller accent there's almost no color with which it doesn't work. Because it's so versatile, this color from the natural world will find a way to live in your home no matter how the backdrop changes.
4. dark leaf green
Noticing something in common with all of these colors? They're all friendly with lots of other colors but most significantly with PINK! Yes, "millenial pink"--you may have heard about it . It's a (big, giant) thing. Since pink has established itself almost as a new genderless neutral, colors like this dark green that lie opposite pink on the color wheel are natural candidates for long-term staying power.
So if you're loving the current fall color trends, go ahead and invest in some. These four are inspiring but also practical and will last you a good long while.
