How to Add the Pantone’s New Fall Colors to Your Home

New York Fashion Week as come and gone, and left us with an impression of what’s to come in the next year of fashion.

It’s no secret that what trends in fashion trends in our homes, which is why we pay close attention to the trend reports coming out of NYFW. And when it comes to picking out what’s noteworthy, no one does it better than Pantone.

We know Pantone best for their annual Color of the Year (

Anglepoise Brass Wall Design | Horne

This classic design gets a modern update with this nod to Riverside Blue. It would make a great addition to any room in the home, but would look especially nice as a bedside lamp.

Airy Blue is just that. The designers wanted this shade of blue to evoke weightlessness, especially in contrast to a world full of conflict. Why would we not want to bring that into our homes and lives? Airy Blue was also chosen as a seasonal representative of the color of the year, Serenity.

Pantone suggests pairing this light and uplifting color with Taupe, Lush Meadow, or Dusty Cedar for a stunning color combination.

Gray tones remain as stylish as ever, and this season’s Sharkskin is no exception. The color is vibrant enough to stand alone with its blue undertone, yet neutral enough to be used in any color combination for the season. To Pantone, the color “showcases practicality through a dependable but contemporary lens”. We agree.

If Airy Blue represents the fall hue of Serenity, Dusty Cedar is the collection’s Rose Quartz. Pantone describes this shade as “a fall and winter version of the Pinks we’re used to seeing in spring”. It also mirrors the popularity of the rose gold metal trend that has been popping up in fashion and interior design in the past few seasons.
