With the fall season now in place, the time has come to update your kitchen. The epicenter of things to come, your kitchen space will be your top resource for casual and holiday dining. Be sure to spruce it up with the season’s best hues to make a seasonally stylish statement.
Have you been thinking about updating your kitchen to reflect the fall season? If so, there are things you can do that will really make a strong statement without breaking the bank. One of the easiest ways to pull inspiration is by using colors related to autumn. Here are some fall colors to consider for your kitchen that also reflect in-season edibles.
A rich hue of purple, eggplant keeps things regal and mysterious. It’s a dark purple with a hint of brown that is both rich and very warm in feel. Though eggplant may not be a desirable edible for some, its strong hue is nonetheless a fall favorite. Use it with other neutrals or by itself against yellow and green accents. Dinnerware and dining textiles are great outlets to introduce this color.

One way to keep your kitchen warm this fall is with a buttery color. Yellow squash is a soothing tone that commands attention without being in your face or too cheerful. It’s a great color that pairs well against other warm tones like orange and cool hues like blue, purple and green. Consider a yellow squash color as a paint option that will brighten your kitchen. In addition, it looks just as fabulous when used as a textile for the dining room table (think placemats and table runners) or fun serveware.

What kitchen would be complete without fresh apples? A seasonal favorite, apples keep you in a fall mood — sweetening your life. Red apples in particular are not only rich in color but visually exciting. Red has been known to have a dramatic effect on interiors, evoking both confidence and excitement. Match your apple-colored pieces with off-whites and medium to dark neutrals like tan and chocolate. This is a great hue for small textiles like napkins and hand towels, along with dinner and glassware, such as drinking goblets.
