14 Ways To Update Your Home with Pantone’s Autumn Colour Palette

Every season, the Pantone colour institute sets a range of colours that inform the interior design world. This year’s autumn palette is warm, vibrant and beautiful. ‘Blue skies represent constancy as they are always above us. Grays give a feeling of stability, Red tones invite confidence and warmth, while the hot Pinkish Purples and Spicy Mustard Yellows suggest a touch of the exotic,’ says Pantone. We trawled Pinterest for some of the fabulous ways these colours have been translated into homes. So, whether you’re redecorating the whole house or just looking to add a few stylish accessories, here are 17 ways to introduce Pantone’s latest colour palette into your living space.

The colours for autumn 2016 are : Riverside, Airy Blue, Shark Skin, Aurora Red, Warm Taupe, Dusty Cedar, Lush Meadow, Spicy Mustard, Potter’s Clay and Bodacious. To see the colours click here.

If you’re looking to redecorate a whole room, opt for a warm wall colour and add a pop of colour with mustard yellow cushions and paler blues.
