The biggest paint trends of the year are all about bringing the earthy, serene vibes of the outdoors inside. From earthy neutrals to using greens and blues more than ever before, homeowners and interior decorators alike are turning to mother nature for inspiration.

As summer fades, the vibrant fall colors that will soon surround us are offering new inspo for a fresh take on bringing the outside, inside. Changing leaves, pumpkins, apples in every shade of red, green, and yellow you can imagine autumn offers a whole new palette to play with.

While most people don’t change their interior paint with the seasons, these fall hues–from crisp reds, dark evergreen greens, sunny yellow, goldenrod, and every shade of orange imaginable can be the solution to sprucing up your space and offer a warm, inviting aesthetic that will last all year long.

Falling for Fall Colors

The natural fall color palette is by far the richest array of colors that reflect the change of the season. These colors are so powerful–they awaken and enliven our senses, while also having the ability to provide a sense of warmth, comfort, and nostalgia. What more could you want for your home? These rich tones are the perfect solution to breathe new life into powder bathrooms, reading nooks, bedrooms, and beyond. There are so many fall colors to fall in love with, each with its own strengths and emotional connections, but we can’t help but feel especially drawn to burnt orange this season.

Orange isn’t typically a color we run to when looking for interior paint, but don’t count it out. There is nothing that says fall has arrived more than the warm and cozy, yet vibrant and energetic shades of orange. Rusty, burnt orange shades have the ability to bring energy to a room while also creating an earthy balance that can make a space feel grounded. From bronze tones and coppery oranges to more traditional rust and earthy burnt orange, these shades look gorgeous on the walls and can be the perfect pop of color in the right spaces. Here are some of our favorite burnt orange paint colors this fall.
