Fall is the perfect time of the year to embark on easy home decorating projects you may have been putting off for the past few months. Let’s be honest, who wants to paint or remodel the inside of a house during a 100-degree scorching summer? Now that the weather is crisp and cool, open the windows and give your home’s interior the easiest transformation – with paint!

Leading paint company Benjamin Moore provides products to get the job done both inside and out. Their Aura paint with Color Lock technology prevents paint colors from rubbing off or fading over time. Color pigments and waterborne resins are bonded together throughout the paint rather than just on the surface, producing a richer and more striking color. Plus, the Aura paint provides instant durability by resisting surface stains and looking freshly-painted for years. And guess what? You’re not limited to a color selection. The Aura paint is available in the entire Benjamin Moore color collection, consisting of more than 3,400 stunning hues. So, let’s start shopping for paint colors, shall we?

I pulled out some of my favorite seasonal-inspired Benjamin Moore paint palettes to celebrate the beginning of fall. They’re not the traditional pumpkin-orange, chocolate-brown and marigold you’re used to seeing. I’m looking at the trendy hues of fall 2012 — raspberry, charcoal, plum, peacock blue and chartreuse.

Benjamin Moore Aura Paint

Warm, Balanced Kitchen: A rich color like firenze is perfect for rooms with white accents and architectural details, like this traditional kitchen. A palette of orange with lavender accents is naturally evocative of fall and perfect to create a warm and homey feel year-round.

Elegant, Urban Living Room: A deep purple, that almost borders on gray, is one of the hottest hues of the season, especially when paired with soft pastels like cream and blush.

Dramatic Dining Room: Nothing says elegance quite like a mix of rich royal blue and coppery gold. In this dining room the blue anchors the room, while the gold serves as a striking accent.

Tone-on-Tone Bedroom: Gray is the new neutral and remains a hot hue of the season. In this contemporary bedroom, a deep charcoal gray serves as the backdrop to a lighter shade that’s stenciled to create a mod tone-on-tone look.

Traditional Green Entryway: Deeper shades of green, like wasabi, always reign supreme in the fall. This charming entryway pulls in a palette of purple, green and gray to provide a warm and inviting use of color.

Urban, Energetic Bedroom: At the end of a neon-filled summer, I’m still feeling the love for vibrant yet warm hues. In this bedroom, chinaberry and wrought iron create the perfect modern color palette. A pop of chartreuse on the bed pulls the entire look together.

    Fall colors are great! All in all I think Fall decor is fabulous and Fall fashion even better…nothing like finally being able to wear some layers.

    Perth real estate photography is really great when it comes to interior design. Whenever I grab any home magazine, I always look for the living room or the dining room interior. The dramatic dining room that you posted is really great. I didnt know that royal blue and coppery gold is a good mix.
