SEPTEMBER 2020 - OAKWOOD BROWN

Though it’s hard to say goodbye to summer, we must admit that we’re pretty excited to welcome the arrival of fall. We’re ready to feel that familiar crispness in the air, the warm hug of a cozy sweater, and the sound of leaves crunching underneath our feet during a morning stroll in the sunshine. We’re always inspired by the gorgeous color palette that nature shows off every fall. Just take a peek outside and you’ll immediately understand why we chose Oakwood Brown as our pick for September’s Color of the Month! 

When you think of the traditional colors of the season, your mind probably goes straight to the bright shades of yellow, red, and orange that emerge as the season starts. However, we get that same warm and comforting fall feeling from the neutral brown we see on all those gorgeous trees. What makes Oakwood Brown such a fabulous color is its versatility. It’s a perfect shade to splash on your walls, since it’s not too dark or imposing. 

When it comes to creating a palette for your space using Oakwood Brown, you have a ton of options. If you really want to embrace those autumn vibes, mix in those classic red, yellow, and orange hues into your space through accent pieces. However, if a more contemporary and relaxed vibe is what you’re after, try pairing it with soft pink, rich teal, crisp white, and soft taupe. 

You can also easily bring this color to the outside of your home, since it’s a rich neutral tone. Use it as a contrasting color on your front door to add some richness to your exterior, or change things up by using it as an allover color with a brighter pop of color on your front door.
