Top Trend: Monochrome Red Color Palettes

Beautiful Earthy Red Tones

Inspiration from New York Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2023/2024

The New York Fashion Week collections for autumn and winter show lush, earthy red tones – tone in tone.

This inspo image picks up on the color trend.

Fiery reds, mixed with dark tones; these vivid colors represent true autumn spirit.

The gorgeous color palette in monochrome red tones will add depth to your project and will for sure pull plenty of eyes to those rich colors.

Light Autumn Colors

Natural Beige and Orange Tones

These very light shades make just the perfect color scheme if you’re looking for a bright and airy, yet earthy color scheme.

What a beautiful color palette for fall weddings!

The intense burnt orange is balanced with two subtle golden beige shades and topped off with a beautiful light blue fall shade.

I just love how these colors work together, balancing each other out in a beautiful way!

Pro tip: If you use these colors for home decor, it’s very easy to fade into winter and even spring:

For example, if you have throw pillows in these colors, simply swap out the two darker colors with other tones, and keep the light beige and light blue pillows to combine with the new colors.

Those tones will perfectly work in a winter or spring color palette!

Bright Autumn Morning Sun

Another fall color palette with lighter shades:

This picture really brings in the atmosphere of a soft autumn morning, with fresh air and warm sunlight.

A cool grey tone is balanced out with three orangey reds; a bright red with a hint of orange, a muted peach tone, and a saturated, warm orange.

This bright color combination will bring a light touch to your fall table decoration.

At the same time, the complementary shades bring incredible warmth and groundedness into your room – just beautiful fall moods.

Dark and Moody Fall Colors

Autumn Leaves Scenery in Muted Tones

The typical autumn color palettes always have saturated reds and oranges.

This one is a slightly muted variation, picked from this beautiful digital art piece.

The darker shades – a very deep forest green and red that’s close to the brown family – perfectly add contrast to the lighter shades – a bright light orange and a cold beige, close to skin tones.

Try implementing these typical fall shades in your everyday wardrobe, your fall home decor, or a self-made seasonal invitation card.

Classic Pumpkin Spice Fall Color Scheme

Who doesn’t absolutely love the cozy feeling that comes with a good pumpkin spice latte?!?

This hot beverage is the ultimate autumn staple drink and it doubles for some pretty awesome color schemes.

A deep brown that’s almost red, a rusty mix of orange and brown, a bright and slightly muted orange, topped off with a golden brown.

These fall colors are an absolute classic!

An all-time favorite.

Moody Fairy Light Inspired Fall Palette

If you’re looking for some different shades than oranges and reds, an inspo picture can give you the right color palette.

Like this cozy dark autumn scenery with some stunningly simple but beautiful fall decor. You can find color inspiration in the background or the decor – pumpkins, cozy throw pillows and blankets, and warm lights from countless candles and twinkle lights.

The color palette gives some bold shades that are not your standard orange-red color palette:

A neutral nude/peach tone, the typical slightly de-saturated muted orange, a dark brown-red, balanced by a dark and moody teal tone.

Pick those colors up in a piece that is around year-long, or use it for a bit of a different autumn home decor palette.

Moody Paper-like Landscape Autumn Color Palette

These dramatic hues make for some pretty awesome fall shades.

Neutral tones combined with bright colors that embrace fall:

A burnt orange, combined with a light mustard yellow, and a dark and moody deep green. Your accent color is a light and soft beige/yellow tone.

Moody and dark but warm tones.

I love this color scheme and would definitely use it for example for throw pillows and blankets throughout the fall and winter seasons.

Tips to Create Your Own Fall Color Combination

How to Best Combine Colors

It can be hard to know how to come up with a nice and balanced fall color palette yourself.

Rule of thumb:

For an awesome fall color scheme: Combine three shades that are tone-in-tone, and balance them with a contrasting tone (it will usually sit opposite the matching shades in the color wheel).

Whether it’s dark shades on the cold and muted spectrum (navy blue, dark and warm greens) or the classic fall colors inspired by fallen leaves and the harvest season (bright red and orange, brown tones, golden yellows, beiges), pull inspiration from whatever autumn shades you love the most!
