Winning Color Combos for Fall

After years of soft neutrals and harmonious earth tones ruling the home front, bolder hues are taking center stage. It's not just color we're thrilled about, but daring marriages of color. Check out these daring color combinations for Fall.

Blue and Green

Why it works: "The popularity of blue and green—colors that symbolize nature—reflects our renewed interest in the environment," Eckstut says. And while just about any blue-green duo works well, today's pairings tend toward brights—lime or grass green coupled with robin's egg blue or aqua, for instance. Can you say sharp?

Variations: Delft blue with lemon yellow, or light blue with a darker tone like turquoise and navy.

Easy idea: Soft blues and greens bring serenity to a bedroom, so introduce these hues into your boudoir with fabrics: Create a customized headboard—and a luxurious focal point—by hanging a swath of patterned silk or other dreamy fabric at the head of your bed, running it up the wall and a couple of feet onto the ceiling before letting the edge of the fabric cascade down. Finish the look with a mix of blue and green accent pillows and a crisp throw folded at the foot of your bed.
