In this post, we have warm colors from the 2016 Pantone Fall Color Report and although there are ten colors that complete this palette, today we will focus on three. I have chosen bold colors this year.
As in the last post, the images below feature fabrics and wallcoverings from Duralee and Robert Allen.

An uplifting color, this subdued hue will tend to go brown as opposed to green in the bright versions. Mustard yellow gives the room a welcoming and comforting feel and pairs well to the entire Pantone palette. It is very warm and sophisticated.

I really appreciate the world of greys. A grey room feels enveloping and promotes relaxation. I find it calming and refined. A perfect choice for the whole gender-neutral scenario and everything goes with it.
This is the strongest of hues. It can be ‘hit-or-miss,’ so one needs to be sure of their choices when using red in a room. Still, a very strong and appealing addition when done right. It can transcend the trend in that it works well in modern and traditional environments.
I would bring in orange as an accent of in combination with other colors. Oranges are more playful than reds and can convey a retro-modern feel in contemporary designs.
I close with a quote from Erinn Valencich—I couldn’t have said it better.
“I think design is moving back to its roots. It’s not about flash and the latest technology; it’s more about classic elements that make us feel good.”
