Looking at the November 2009 preview of Living etc, you really get the feel that warm and rich colors are in vogue. As someone who loves burnt oranges and rich yellow tones, I could not be happier. The more daring can enliven their home with cerise.
As you can see rich vibrant colors are used as accent colors against neutrals. The rise of yellow, which started last year, is still going strong when I look at home accessories. Opposing rich spice colors to dark maroons, grays or khakis will create a more classic look that will last longer.
The good news about what is hot for fall 2009 is that you putting a few accessories can be enough to update your home. Put your attention on getting a few throws, cushions, on changing a lamp base or adding vases here and there. We always need a few throws anyway for the cold months. UK retailer Toast carries this season richly colored blankets and throws in a wool/mohair/alpaca yarn. The nankeen yellow Chunky Handknit Throw is superb.
This trend is not just on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. Just look at the last two issues of Metropolitan Home to see that it is also going on across North America.
