Interior Design takes cues from the fashion world and with the release of fall 2013 fashion colour trends, we see a wide range of deep and rich colours this season.

With Emerald green announced as Pantone's Colour of the year, they've continued the trend for fall with a few more subdued and deeper colour variation such as deep lichen green (army green/khaki) and linden green (yellow/green). Continuing with the jewel tones, we see Acai (deep purple), Mykonos Blue and Samba (deep red). Turbulence (deep gray) and Carafe (deep brown) are the strong neutrals with Koi (orange) and Vivacious (rich pink) as pops of fun colours.

Here are a few ideas and sources for your new fall look:


Making quite an impact this fall are metallic accents in bronze or brass. These elements will add glamour and texture to any interior space. We especially like metallic accents in wall coverings and finishes, chandeliers and accessories.

You can also add brass accents by choosing a beautiful chandelier or dining chairs with leather upholstery for a touch of glamour to your dining area. Choose fine china or decorative bowls and trivets with brass accents.


Or even something a bit more dramatic such as this brass chandelier we used at Queen Mary in North Vancouver.


Rivets in furniture and wall coverings is a fantastic new trend, as it adds another layer of texture. Rivets are so versatile that they can be used anywhere, and can have any design pattern, as simple or complex as you want it to be.

Use rivets along with metallic accents with wall coverings such as this Glam Grass grasscloth by Phillip Jeffries or even add rivets on upholstered headboard panels.



With all the rich jewel tones the fall colour trends bring, which colour will you introduce into your own home? Be bold and add brass accents for texture and glamour. Add colour with accessories, pendant lights or crystal vases, like these from Provide Home.
