Want that warm and cozy fall feeling all year round? These rooms display beautiful, autumnal hues and warm, rich patterns — perfect for crisp days and cooler nights. A traditional fall palette like persimmon, pumpkin and chocolate creates an inviting ambience all year round.

Peacock blue and dreamy

Cool peacock blue is a hot color for fall, and this dining room perfectly illustrates the kind of drama that can be created with color. The deep hue makes the room feel cozy — perfect for intimate fall dinner parties. The rich tone is balanced with fall-inspired textiles on the chairs and drapery.

Cozy with rich, creamy color and detail

A perfect fall room, like this cozy living room, highlights rich colors like chocolate brown, lime green and orange without overpowering the space. The choice of painting the walls and trim the same creamy color helps lighten the living room and the heavily coffered ceilings add both depth and shadowing for a rich detail.

Nothing says "fall" quite like spicy orange

Nothing says autumnal decor like this rust-orange wall. Paired with classic neutrals like chocolate brown and ivory, this room feels contemporary and fresh. When using highly saturated paint, like this orange, keep in mind that the strong color may "bleed" onto surrounding white or off-white walls.

Lit for warmth

This warm and inviting great room combines favorite fall colors like pumpkin, chestnut and butterscotch. The neutral gray cabinetry and white trim and tile serve as the perfect backdrop for whatever color direction the homeowner wants to incorporate next. Notice the extra lamps in both the kitchen and family room — a great idea for illuminating dark fall nights.
