Natural Fall Palette Inspired by Pantone
Shades from Nature’s Paintbox
Some people get excited about the annual reveal of the Academy Award nominations, or the championship game series of a sports team they love. We know the feeling! Here at the REstyleSOURCE offices, we can’t help but get a little tingly every time Pantone (the worldwide authority on color inspiration since 1963) announces the season’s new crop of color trends. For Fall 2015, the recently announced list of seasonal colors includes earthy tones such as Dried Herb, Desert Sage, Stormy Weather, Oak Buff and Marsala.
Neither traditionally masculine nor feminine, this Natural Fall Palette rides that line perfectly, adapting well to many styles. One thing this palette is particularly well-suited to is all the natural materials we’ve been seeing in design trends–warm woods with natural knots or exposed ‘live’ edges, cool marble and agate slices, wool, cotton, ceramic, and all kinds of woven grasses and fibers. It’s a palette that feels simultaneously a little bit retro and yet very much current–think of all the boho chic and mid-century-inspired looks we’ve been seeing recently. This palette will splash perfectly over all those looks and more! Read on for more from Pantone on each of these shades, and some inspired REstyleSOURCE picks that are perfectly on-trend for this fall’s lineup of colors.
