Fall Color Preview: Dark Blue

by Erika Woelfel


The first colors that come to mind for the fall season are warm brown, deep russet, and pumpkin orange. This idea has been turned upside down as cool navy and serene indigo dominate 2013’s autumn color story.

Moving away from summer aqua, look for navy eyeliner and ultra blue nail polish at the cosmetics counter. That comfortable denim blue that works so well for jeans also translates well into evening gowns. In silk, velvet or taffeta, dark blue suddenly goes from ordinary to WOW!

At home, dark blue is a classic pairing with white. It is terrific in living rooms, bedrooms and even small bathrooms to create a more relaxed and spacious feeling.


Pass on the little black dress and turn heads in a deep blue gown at holiday gatherings.

Dark blue goes home and fits any style from modern to traditional. Use it for interiors or exteriors with classic white trim. Play with yellow accents for a bold, complementary statement.



Colorfully yours,
