Red Dead Ahead in Fall and Winter Home Decor

Red dead ahead! You’ll see red everywhere in home decor for fall and winter of 2018. So what are the season’s top red colors for home decorating? According to Pantone, the world’s authority in color, Chili Pepper (Pantone 19-1557) and Red Pear (Pantone 19-1536) will reign supreme.

Reds are rich and warm. Lend that warmth to your home for the long, cold months that are just ahead of us. You’ll love curling up in red and staying cozy all winter long.

These are not simple reds that we are seeing this fall. They are complex hues with warm, spicy undertones that add flair and style and even an exotic appeal. If you love neutrals with a splash of color, these will pair gorgeously with gray, beige, tan, or white. For the more daring and adventurous, pair them with other spicy tones like mustards and olive–think of the colors of Morrocco or Tuscany for inspiration.
