It's time for Fall at Home: Hunker down, bundle up, and make the season as cozy as possible with our foolproof guide to autumn.

Orange is the go-to fall color for a reason. It's warm, inviting, and matches the crisp fall foliage perfectly. But we'd be lying if we said it wasn't, well, predictable. It's always fun to play around with color and fall is no exception. We took notes from Pinterest and Pantone, and this season, it's all about warm neutrals, earthy and natural tones, moody dark blues and grays, and even some pops of color to dress up your space.


Here are some of our favorite fall color trends.
