An elegant fall space calls for a romantic, flamboyant and spicy color palette. When creating the mood board for this issue, two colors kept coming to mind: copper and cabernet. Spaces dazzled with these colors give off an air of elegance grounded with plush fabrics, leathers and natural fibers. Copper accents play well with other metals and add visual interest to a room, especially when paired with neutrals like marble and leather. This metal is also warm enough to complement the deep notes of cabernet. When mixed together, these hues create a vibe akin to an Italian bar or a vineyard in late fall. It certainly sounds dreamy, if we do say so ourselves. We’ve curated our favorite products, fabrics and accents from local stores to help guide your next redesign.
