Fall Interior Color Schemes

Fall color schemes don’t have to be limited to pumpkin orange, corn husk greens and light browns. Fill your home with bold and brilliant reds, golden yellow, burnt oranges and shades of nude. These fall-inspired color scheme tips will help you put a nice twist on your home while maintaining those cozy and inviting moods that come with the season.

Pops of bold!

Make a bold color palette look effortless by incorporating neutrals. Fall colors can be a lot to take in if they are not used mindfully. Instead of painting all of your walls bright red or orange, choose an accent wall or even an accent chair or table runner to do the job in a seamless way. You can balance out your bold accents with neutrals such as light grey, whites, tans and shades of nude.

Eclectic Vibes

If you don’t care about your space being overwhelming for some, there is no problem with going all in. This doesn’t mean mix and match clashing colors. To do this right, you will still have to be mindful, but more giving. As mentioned earlier, fall colors don’t have to be limited to the typical reds, oranges, and browns. Try layering a pretty jewel color with shades of emerald green for a warm yet eclectic effect. This will still give you that comforting fall vibe, but with a nice little twist.

Fall Neutrals

If you aren’t really into the bold color schemes, stick to ritch neutrals. Layering shades of neutrals will still provide that comforting feeling for fall without it necessarily saying “fall.” I recommend going for a rustic or farmhouse look such as a wood paneled accent wall, furry pillows, and a large wool area rug.


Use the changing leaves as inspiration for this look. If you are a huge fan of yellow but don’t really want to use any other colors, just use different tints to create depth. For example, if you want your bedroom to be golden yellow for the season, look for bright yellow sheets and curtains and to tone it down a bit, go with a lighter tint for the accent chair or area rug.

Hot & Cold

If warm tones overwhelm you, pair warm fall colors with crisp neutrals for a contrasting yet appealing balance in temperature. Use warm accents such as pillows, blankets, vases, rugs and even furniture. To incorporate that cool tone, paint your walls a blue-grey, get some cool toned curtains, or add a bright white throw to your sofa.
