Fall is finally here! Saying goodbye to summer is bittersweet, but the lazy days of summer are forgotten almost immediately when you throw socks, hoodies and pumpkin spice everything into the mix. One of our favorite aspects of the season are the warm and earthy colors, like burnt orange. This hue perfectly captures the color of the changing autumn leaves and gets us in the mood for all things fall.
Add it to your decor for a splash of color. You can go contemporary or rustic with a color like this.
This color looks incredible in an autumn wedding. Add purples or blues if you like a lot of contrast.
The ultimate color to add to your autumn wardrobe. It looks great with neutrals and is great for layering since it isn’t too bright.
If you have a bold personality and want your decor to reflect that eccentric quality, give high contrast a try. This style is identified by bringing in elements that are essentially opposites of each other. While one might assume this translates into a busy and overwhelming room, the end results of high contrast rooms are often really impactful and dramatic. A classic pairing is black and white. We love the additional botanical elements to infuse the room with a natural element as well as a dash of color.
Kitchens are usually a central hub of activity, and your space can reflect that with accents of bright colors!
Modern and minimalist styles look especially dramatic with this type of color scheme.
If creating an entire room with a high-contrast color scheme seems scary, start with a small spot in your house first to test out this trend!

With autumn on our tail, you’d think we would be starting to think about warm, earthy colors, but in 2014 we’re moving away from the home decor status quo. This fall we’re going to see a spike in cool saturated colors making its way into homes, specifically the striking cobalt blue. This gorgeous shade works perfectly in almost any room. It’s relaxing in your bedroom, enticing in a living room and clean in your kitchen. It’s a beautiful color to use on your walls, or, if you’re just trying it out, as an accent color. Pair it with yellows for a high contrast look, or with different shades of blues and grays for a more muted approach.
Canvas tote bags are practical and great for running errands. But truth be told, they’re a little plain. Make your tote bag stand out with classic details that will instill your DIY creation with a preppy and sophisticated vibe, and avoid the question of paper or plastic once and for all.
What You’ll Need:
Faux Leather Bias Binding
Flatback Crystal Rhinestones
1. Glue the faux leather trim on top on the canvas handles of your tote.
2. Once the glue has dried, use E6000 to glue the trim across the top of the bag.
3. Use small pieces of the trim to cover the edges of the bag.
4. Write your initials, favorite word or phrase out lightly in pencil, and when you’re happy with the marks, go over it with your fabric pen.
5. Finish your tote off with some sparkling accents by adding small flatback rhinestones to the top and bottom of your design!
2014 was the year of Radiant Orchid, a cool toned medium-pink that captured the fashion, decor and beauty world by storm; but today we want to give a nod to one of Radiant Orchid’s close cousins: fuchsia. Fuchsia is a bright reddish-purple that takes its name from the equally beautiful fuchsia flower. This color would look beautiful in any season because it’s vibrant enough for summer, but rich enough for winter.
A fuchsia dress is one way to liven up a room! It’s as dramatic as red, but a little more modern and playful.
A popular choice for bride, this bold color is perfect for accenting more muted colors.
And don’t forget about home decor! Adding fuchsia to your room is a fantastic way to make any room more lively!
