Trend Spotlight: The Cozy Fall Color Palettes We’re Loving for 2020

With fall, there often comes the desire to change out decor and bring cozier elements into our homes. A big way that you can change up the vibe of your space is through color. Bringing a different color palette into a room can completely transform how it feels. While you might have used a lot of whites, blues, and yellows for summer, fall is a great time to incorporate deeper and more saturated hues.

When refreshing the color scheme of a room for fall, you can always go with the classics, which mirror the colors of changing leaves—reds, oranges, golden yellows, browns. But you could also take a trendier approach for something a bit more bold. There are some great fall decor ideas and color trends out there right now that bring both warmth and personality to your space.

Our designers have been spotting bold colored rooms and deeply saturated hues throughout the design world that are making a big splash this fall—and we want to fill you in on what they are and how to incorporate them into your home. So, if you’re looking for simple and attainable ways to bring fall color decor trends into your space, keep reading!

 fall color schemesWays to Decorate With Trendy Fall Colors

When making fall decor updates, the colors you choose are just as important as the decor swaps you make. Opting for rich, saturated hues (like the ones we’ll show you in this post) will bring coziness and warmth into your space—perfect for when the weather gets cooler! And you can incorporate these colors in big or small ways.

Textiles are a perfect way to incorporate trendy fall colors. Whether through accent pillows, throws, or even a rug, you can bring in pops of these fall 2020 colors throughout your space. Bonus points for layering in different textures through these textiles as well! A lot of what will make these trendy fall colors come alive is textures, since they’re more saturated colors; the texture of a textile will bring more depth to the color.

Decorative Accents

Tabletop decor is another great way to subtly incorporate these colors—through vases, decorative bowls, candles, or even the florals and greenery you choose. In fact, fall is a great time to swap out greenery for dried florals, sculptural branches, or grasses. We also recommend adding in more candles for that warm, layered lighting (and some cozy scents).

Of course, if you’re in the mood for a bigger change, you can certainly incorporate these color palettes in a larger way, too—say, through painting a wall or swapping out an accent chair for one in a trendy fall hue. This will make a big impact, but each of the trendy fall color palettes we’re unpacking today will have legs far beyond the fall. They’ll still be relevant in winter 2020 and far beyond—so you don’t have to paint your walls seasonally or constantly be purchasing new furniture.

But, whether in big ways or small, these trendy color palettes are a fun way to breath new life into your home this fall. Keep reading for four of our favorite fall 2020 color trends!

 fall color schemesDeep Olives and Woods

Is anything quite so cozy as deep greens mixed with warm wood tones? We’re going to go with no. The combination of wood elements with deep olives is one of those very warm and cozy fall color schemes that we can’t get enough of. Woods mix really well in this color palette, since they pop against earthy, saturated greens, and can range from lighter to darker wood tones.

Why We Love It

Not only do earthy greens go beautifully with wood pieces, but this duo can also be accented with other earth tones like terracotta, tan, sage, khaki, and cream. Leather accents also bring out the richness of both wood and green tones. All of this allows for a layered look and the opportunity to really personalize this trendy color palette.

Stylist Tip: Layer in some dried branches as another wooden element and a piece of quintessential fall decor!

Earth Purple and Brown

We’re seeing a lot of this deep, inky, earthy shade of purple this fall. This heavily saturated hue pairs perfectly with deep brown woods and other natural materials such as seagrass and jute, which really make this color pop.

Why We Love It

This deep, earthy purple makes a great base for a jewel-tone color palette. It has a luxurious feel to it, and depending on the colors you pair it with it can bring out both purple or deep red undertones—which makes it easy to further personalize this look. Either way, it pops against neutrals and brings a resonant depth to your space.

Stylist Tip: Try pairing this color with dried florals that have deep purple or red tones to add to the fall vibe.

 fall color schemesCharcoal with Saturated Earth Tones

If you want a more nuanced and layered color palette that’s also on-trend for 2020 color schemes, try mixing charcoal with deep greens and pops of earth tones and crisp neutrals. This shade of pine green has cooler undertones, but placing it alongside natural materials really warms it up.

Shop This Look

Why We Love It

There’s something very sophisticated about this color combo. Charcoal is also a great way to bring low-key contrast into a color scheme. Charcoal pairs beautifully with earth tones, offering both contrast and depth. But it’s not as harsh as black, so it creates a softer look.

Stylist Tip: Fall is a great time to layer in more natural materials to your space, giving it added texture. Jute rugs, woven poufs, knit woolen throws, cane, seagrass, and other natural textures, all coming together in an earthy palette to create warmth and textural diversity in your space.

 fall color schemesHigh-Contrast Neutrals and Blues

Blue and beige might not be a color combo you naturally think of for a fall color palette—but high-contrast neutrals are actually a very trendy color combo this fall. When paired with other warm neutrals, a blue and beige palette takes on a rustic warmth that’s perfect for fall.

Shop This Look

Why We Love It

The coolness of a blue and beige palette is warmed up when paired with natural wood, warm tans, and leather accents—resulting in a space that feels quite cozy. Not big on decorating with bold colors? This is a perfect way to warm up your space while staying among neutrals.

Stylist Tip: Bring contrast into your space in a bold way by swapping out light and airy curtains for heavier navy drapes.
