As summer winds down, we can’t help but start thinking about about cooler weather, pumpkin everything, and of course, current fall decorating trends. With the beautiful new neutrals that have been everywhere this year, it only makes sense that bright pops of color are on the home decor horizon. The colors feel especially fresh as they’re not all the typical fall favorites.

According to Pantone, the authority on all things color, Fall/Winter 2018 is all about bright, bold hues. “The Fall/Winter 2018 palette continues to show designers expressing the need for individuality, ingenuity and creativity though fashion,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, in a press release. “As designers and consumers alike continue to transition away from cyclical trends, and instead focus on self-expressive colors that evade antiquated seasonal structure, we are seeing very notable non-traditional choices.” 

Leading this fall’s Top 10 list are Red Pear, Valiant Poppy and Nebulas Blue, followed by Ceylon Yellow, Martini Olive, Russet Orange and Ultra Violet. Ranking eighth through tenth are Crocus Petal, Limelight and Quetzal Green. As you can see, most of these shades don’t feel traditionally autumnal. pantone-ftr-img3-copy.jpg

Designers are making big statements with a singular bright hue like never before, though if that’s not your style you can absolutely incorporate these shades into your decor in smaller doses. The real trend here is self expression, so do what makes you feel happy in your space. As always, trends will come and go, the trick is integrating them into your home in a way that fits your personal aesthetic. Here are some of our favorite spaces that incorporate the 2018 fall/winter palette to help inspire you!

Interesting Islands

Large or small, everyone loves a kitchen island. The kitchen is the heart of the home and people love hanging out there. In your home your kitchen island can be whatever you want it to be, and serve whatever purpose you want it to. It is with that thought in mind we share with you some really cool examples of unique kitchen islands.

This ultra-modern horseshoe island works beautifully with a workspace level and lower glass half-circle dining level. You could also easily pull up bar stools to the upper level on the outside edges to create more seating while entertaining.Kitchen-Island-Trends-2018-37Photo: Mendelday Kitchen
We love this triangular island with it’s gorgeous curves. It also incorporates the mixed materials trend we talked about last month by combining natural stone with a built in cutting board space. This design allows for seating on two sides, with a separate workspace area, maximizing its functionality.unique-kitchen-island-shapes-trends-with-enchanting-pictures-ideas-and-styles-cartPhoto: Eckti
