Autumnal shades and jewel tones – top colour choices for the season

Published: 01st November 2022

From the russet tones of falling leaves to the jewel tones of Bonfire night, Autumn certainly provides a rich tapestry of inspiration when you’re considering colours for your new front door.

Here, we take a stroll through some of our favourite colour choices of the season, as well as looking ahead to the colour trends that we’re likely to see in 2023 and beyond.

Take a leaf out of nature’s book

As well as the quintessential Autumnal shades of deep, burnt orange and flaming reds, it’s also the perfect time to explore the full spectrum of yellow shades, from a soft Sand Yellow (RAL #1002) to vibrant Buttercup Yellow (RAL #1021).

Colours that take inspiration from nature are always a popular choice, from deep moss greens, to classic, rustic choices in style and accessories that are a perfect choice for a countryside home.

Halloween hues that are anything but scary…

The 31st October is a spooktacular excuse to dress up and decorate the entrance to your home with everything from Jack o’ Lanterns to broomsticks, but what colour inspiration can we take from the festivities?

Whilst black is a classic choice, more daring customers might want to explore greens, purples and oranges to make a big impression on visitors – whether they’re trick or treaters or friends and family!

Be inspired by Bonfire Night

The fireworks that light up the night sky every 5th November also provide a dazzling array of jewel tones and rich, colourful inspiration, from Peacock Blue (RAL #5020), through to an emerald green and bold red.

What’s coming in 2023?

As we head towards the end of the year, we start to see designers and brands make their predictions of the shades they think homeowners will inject into their home in the coming year.

As we look ahead to 2023, comfort is key. Homely and cosy colour palettes are predicted to be the colours people reach for, including earthy taupes and terracottas, these tones exude warmth and elegance.
