A Colorful Fall Forecast

Design guru Stacy Garcia looks into her crystal ball for I&S and comes back with the color trends you’ll be seeing this fall.

One thing is for sure: we won’t see a lack of color this fall. On the contrary, we will see a full spectrum as we look to fall with optimism. Saturated hues with positivity and energy; sensual, deep colors; complex pastels and textured neutrals will all be spotted this coming fall.

This summer we featured exciting and intense variations of yellow.  From the creamy tint of butter, exuberant sunshine to optimistic gold, yellow warms the soul. Optimistic gold will be the choice for autumn.

A wide range of greens have also been front and center. We’ll see leaf greens used as organic highlights; meadow greens that will allow a soft, loosened look; and vegetal, wild greens that will take you on a trip through unspoiled landscapes. These hues are fresh and succulent. Green is a hue with deep meaning as it symbolizes balance and growth.  Green has been seen as the new neutral due to its versatility, and will continue to be a popular color family.

We will be seeing lots of textured neutrals, whether they have the sexy air of ruggedness found in leathered black, or the grainy, gritty surface of light teak. Powdered and dusted light neutrals will be important, as well as rosy metallics.

Neutrals will be high-end, modern and composed with combinations like caramel and camel. Earthy and honest browns are also making a comeback.
