No matter the popular colors at the time, your color choices should reflect your personal style.
Whatever you find your interest drawn to naturally (a piece of furniture or artwork, maybe) will most likely serve you best as a long term choice for your color palette.
As fall approaches, pops of deep, rich hues like moody blues or warm reds define color palettes balanced with calming neutrals.
Patterned wallpaper should be used sparingly on an accent wall.
“New neutrals” go beyond gray and tan. Think nature-inspired clay, purple-gray, hazelnut, gray-green, and French vanilla.
