Hello, Instagram! This seems to have been on Pantone’s mind when they chose the Autumn-Winter colors for 2019. And, since we have just entered September, it’s time to take a look at how you can use those gorgeous shades to revamp your garden rooms and make them Instagrammable!
Energy. Confidence. Individuality. This is the message that the Pantone Color Institute is trying to send to us through the choice of colors for this autumn and winter. So this is exactly what we’ll be talking about. The meaning behind the shades, how you can use them for interior decorations of your garden rooms, and the colors themselves, of course. Let’s start with that!
We know you’re ready to find out what they are so that you can start decorating, so let’s cut right to the chase. The colors Pantone has chosen for us this autumn are Chili Pepper and Biking Red as its number one and two. Crème de Peche is number three followed by Peach Pink, while the number five spot belongs to Rocky Road.
Let’s delve into some details about these amazing colors and how you can use them in your garden rooms. But before that, here’s a tip. You can also wear these colors because you will be seeing them absolutely everywhere this autumn so you might as well get with the trend!
This is the number one color that will dominate the palette this autumn. If you feel like you’re already a little familiar with it, you’re not wrong. Chili Pepper is basically another shade of Fiesta, the color that Pantone proposed as number one for spring.
Therefore, if you have already redecorated in spring using Fiesta, all you need to do now is add a few Chili Pepper accents and you’re done! If not, and you want to make this new shade the star of the show, we suggest you use it wisely. Such a fiery color can be a lot to take for the eye.
Here’s the difference between the two. Chili Pepper is warm and dramatic, meant to stimulate and excite you. Which is why we advised against using copious amounts of it while decorating your garden rooms. On the other hand, Biking Red is a richer, much deeper shade that has a cooler undertone. It is definitely a shade meant for autumn, according to specialists and designers.
The name of this color literally translate to ‘cream of peach’ from French. As its name suggests, it’s a light and creamy shade, almost ethereal. It’s pale and has a soft feminine quality to it that will add luminosity to your garden rooms and which both men and women can embrace.
The color is meant to be combined with Chili Pepper and Biking Red as it brings a little peace after all the drama they create. Therefore, if you are set to use the entire Pantone autumn palette in your garden rooms, think of adding some Crème de Peche curtains or even walls. They will give the eye a chance to rest.
We know what you’re thinking. Aren’t Crème de Peche and Peach Pink the same? No, they’re not. Peach Pink, is, in fact, much bolder than the former although they are sister colors. Think of a Cipriani bellini prosecco and you will understand how vibrant this bubbly peach pink is. As opposed to Crème de Peche which is soft and almost like a blush.
Evidently, the two will work beautifully together if, for example, you have decided to turn your garden rooms into a guest bedroom. Then you could use the two colors for the bedding and accent throw pillows.
If the Pantone Rocky Road shade does not put you in mind of rich chocolate ice cream, nothing ever will. Because this is exactly what it looks like. That might actually be where it got its name from – the eponymous ice cream flavor. Therefore, the shade is a very deep and cool toned brown that will mimic the earthy color you get to see as the weather changes from autumn to winter.
Pair it with Crème de Peche and Peach Pink at first, while the weather is still warm and summer still lingers in the September air. But when you get to October and November, you can start pairing it with Biking Red for a deep and rich autumnal palette. At the end of fall, mix and match Rocky Road with Chili Pepper to signal December is here and that you are ready to redecorate your garden rooms for Christmas!
To put is simply, they mean energy, confidence, and individuality. Without a doubt, all these colors have been influenced by and chosen for people’s increased activity on Instagram. Not only that but you might have noticed for yourself that more and more public places such as bars, cafes, restaurants, and even museums are now redecorating to create photo-friendly interiors.
Pantone has catered to this new, modern life and has given everyone a set of colors that essentially look good in pictures. Apart from that, these shades are bold, vibrant, and theatrical. They can make you feel beautiful and confident, as well as energized. Mixing and matching these outstanding and dramatic colors can give you a sense of individuality that you can then share on social media.
