I think one of the biggest lessons we can learn from the Room of the Week is about putting together a color palette. It’s a great mix of neutral colors, plus some soft summery colors, a darker color, and finishes with a coat of shine.
- Take out the large white rug and the dark wood floors would make this room feel much smaller and darker.
- Take out the jolt of deep red and the room would feel less grown-up and definitely more summery.
- Take out the shiny stripes and bench and the room would lose its glow.
Admittedly there is a lot going on in this room, but the colors are so beautifully balanced that you don’t feel overwhelmed. Not too much coral or white or gold or red. And, I think this is such a beautiful palette for Fall.
Here are a few scenarios I put together inspired by the color palette from the Room of the Week.
A Cozy Bedroom: Brass Lamp | Gray & White Sham | Coral Tassel Pillow | Dark Red Striped Rug | Green Linen Curtains
A Spot for Reading: Green Settee | Gray Curtains | Gold Fleur Pillow | Dark Red Rug | Copper Stripe Pillow
A Tween Bedroom: Burgundy Paper Lantern | Gray Wood Bed | Coral Side Table | Green & White Striped Rug | Lovely Pillow
A Welcoming Front Door: Gray Planter | Harvest Hydrangea Wreath | Gold Tree Stool| Bench
Could you use this color palette formula to change your room for fall?
