Kids are finally back in school and you’re thinking you need a change—and nothing beats a fall interior painting refresh. Fall 2014 paint trends are inspired by Paris and New York fashion week runways (you may recognize these hues!) and no matter what strikes your fancy, you can make a big statement just by changing up your palette. You’ll see a theme through these colors that’s undeniable—these fall paint trends are all about pairing a rich, bold color with elegant neutrals inspired by nature.

Deciding between a bold accent or the new neutral walls? Who says you have to choose? Incorporate this season’s paint trends of blue silvers and milky coffees with saturated royal blue and mustard yellows. This is a great palette if you’re looking to bring some excitement to basic living room décor, without starting from scratch.

Nails or wall? OPI’s partnership with Clark + Kensington at Ace Hardware means you can find your favorite nail salon color…and put it on your wall. We all have our tried and true favorites. So why reinvent the wheel? You already know what you like! We love this romantic palette — it’s a great pairing of confident glamour in reds and navy and easy, laid-back crèmes and buffs. Just to think, before, you would have had to use that teeny, tiny brush.
Curtains, bedding and paint? That all coordinate? Sign us up! If you’re acting as your own interior designer, Pottery Barn’s collaboration with Sherwin-Williams takes the guesswork out of translating this season’s trends onto your walls, decor accents, throw pillows, side tables and more. This palette is a mix of downy greys, dusty crèmes and emerald blues. Further proving what, by now, you may have already deduced…a well-used greige or crème can do wonders. It’s both elegant and easy.

Light, peppy greens don’t just have to be for springtime! When paired with muted mints and crisp whites, the room becomes a soothing retreat from busy fall days. This Farrow & Ball palette would make for make for a beautiful bedroom or cheerful laundry room.

Calming, clear and effortlessly beautiful — nothing beats a beautiful sky blue to freshen up your walls (and maybe even your outlook!). Consider this a part of the “new neutral” Fall 2014 paint palettes and use “breath of fresh air” in place of a basic white.
