Fashionable in the Fall: Uniquely Use the Season’s Hottest Hues
Fall is here, and winter is near. Leaves begin to fall, and the seasons have changed. The greenest of grass is fading fast. Leaves of every luscious color cover the landscape as trees start to get into winter shape.
At Southern Painting, we find many homeowners looking to celebrate autumn’s color palate by making fresh updates to their décor. Fall inspires transformation and interior and exterior paint projects are no different. If you’ve fallen for autumn hues, here are some expert ideas for uniquely incorporating shades of autumn into your home.
Our top five unique ways to add fall colors to you décor without painting any walls:
You can add an exciting element to your home by spicing up your bookshelf. Whether it’s a built-in or a standalone piece of furniture, adding life to it is a must do painting project. Add distinctive depth by painting the backs of the bookshelf a bold color. Try a shade of green such as Sherwin-Williams® Vegan as backdrop on a white bookshelf or go with dark orange –we like Sherwin Williams® Naval- on a wooden stained bookshelf to add a perfect pop of pizazz.
Looking to spice up the place where you store your spices? Here’s our tip: Instead of focusing on the backsplash, countertops, or cabinets – try adding a little glamour to an unexpected area that can really stand out. Islands not only add personality but can become the central design feature in the kitchen. Painting the island can add a surprising dash of drama without overpowering the overall look or shrinking the space.
Detailed Door Trim
Uniquely incorporate fall’s hottest hues in your home are through painting your door trim. Who would have thought? Using your probably already white doors, paint the trim in a contrasting color. This trick works wonders if you’re feeling bold and distinctive. Our top pick for this trick – PPG’s Dover Gray.
Create Curb Appeal
If you’re happy with the interior of your home, but want to spruce up the exterior of your home boosting its curb appeal – we’ve got you covered. Build on the beauty of your home’s exterior with freshly painted front door. With a little vision you’ll be surprised how easy it is to create an eye-catching entry into your home. We love the fiery Sherwin-Williams® Showstopper Red for a fashionable and warm door color. If red feels to bold for you, deepen the hue of the red for a more refined shade that appears more neutral without losing the pop of Fall flair!
Fall Focal Wall
Did we say “without painting any walls?” Okay, we know once you start seeing the beautiful transformation begin, like the fall, you will want to roll into creating one room as the focus of your fall makeover and we know walls come into play. We think you’ll love this idea. Creating a geometric focal wall is gaining popularity this fall. Here’s what you do to make it uniquely you: Paint one wall in the room a bold, energetic hue like purple, our pick is Sherwin-Williams® Magical. Add in cut strips of molding and create a geometric design and you have a distinctively designed wall that stands out and will certainly be the focal point of any room.
