What to Do With All Those Leaves

Posted by Mary Sweigert ~ October 29, 2008

Ochre oranges and vibrant reds have started to peek out through the lush monochrome greens of our abundant foliage here in town. It's crisp out and the leaves are ready to be crunched under foot while sipping a pumpkin flavored coffee beverage.

Autumn is a great time of year to indulge in the warm colors and the last ditch displays of nature before trees and grasses descend into full hibernation mode for the season. Ambers and golds, burnt siennas and gingers frame city streets and park sidewalks, and while nature is changing its palette, it got me thinking how great it would be to bring similar colors inside to revitalize a home's tired color scheme.

I like paint colors that are visibly inspired by the hallmarks of autumn. For example, Valspar has created an entire line around the warm hues of fall just for the home. Giving your home a fall painting makeover is a festive way to warm up your kitchen's feel in anticipation of the cool weather and shorter days. It may also cheer your spirits as the mornings hide within the horizon longer, and the evenings get sucked away too soon into the winter dark.

Not quite feeling inspired yet?
