Every season the color experts at Pantone evaluate the shades shown by fashion designers in their collections at New York Fashion Week, putting together a comprehensive palette. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, said this year’s fall collection leans to warmth and comfort, with standout shades include a pale pink Ballet Slipper, a refreshing Golden Lime, and a bright Marina blue.
Colors from fashion often make their way to the home. Here’s a list of colors to look for when enhancing your décor and the energy they will bring to your home.
- Grenadine. A powerful, evocative, dynamic red, Grenadine is a confident and self-assured attention-getter.
- Tawny Port. Taking the Red family to new depths, Tawny Port is elegant, sophisticated, and tasteful.
- Ballet Slipper. Descended from the Red family but with a softer touch, Ballet Slipper is always flattering and reminiscent of the rosy glow of health.
- Butterum. This snug, warming, and toasty shade is evocative of drinking a glass of Butterum by a roaring fire on a cool autumn evening.
- Navy Peony. A mainstay for the season for both palettes, Navy Peony is a dependable and an anchoring shade. Solid and stable, the hue takes some of the load off of black as a go-to neutral.
- Neutral Gray. The standard bearer of all neutrals, Neutral Gray shares the anchoring role with Navy Peony in this palette. It can be used as an accent or a head-to-toe statement shade.
- Shaded Spruce. This is a green you might see in the forest – sheltering and protective as evergreen trees.
- Golden Lime. Earthy tones with a twist, the golden undertones of Golden Lime makes this yellow-green shade a refreshing complement to fall classics.
- Marina. Cool with an enhanced vitality, Marina is the only truly cool color in the fall palette that brings with it freshness and brightness.
- Autumn Maple. A quintessential autumn color, Autumn Maple is tawny and russet, introducing warmth into the palette.
