Natural Inspiration

Customers may be inspired by their natural surroundings, be they in the deep greens of pines trees, the rich reds and oranges of the changing leaves or the warm brown of tree branches. Colors such as Garland Green 28A-5, Dragon Fruit 03D-4, Darling 01D-4, Pumpkin Latte 13B-6, Dutch Tulips 10B-6, Star Anise N-W32 or Rustica N-W31 may be just the ticket for walls and painted furniture.

Subtle Neutrals

Even popular fall beverages can spur creative color selections. Also great as stand-alone colors for wall and trim, Swiss Coffee CW-W3 and Antique White CW-W7 pair well with Trench Coat N-C4 or Stormy Weather CW-C7 for a more complex background.

Dark and Contemporary

Add elegance and drama to interiors with nighttime-inspired hues, such as Charcoal Cashmere N-C14 or Dark Diversion 37B-7. The design experts recommend these hues for statement pieces within the home, especially in high-traffic areas that lend themselves to strong design, such as the entryway.
