Here at HGTV.com, we try to push the envelope with our Color of the Month choices. After all, not everyone goes for contemporary coral or intense neon hues. But sometimes we can’t deny the appeal of a traditional color choice. That’s right, this month the Color Team here actually agreed — almost unanimously — on our color for November. Want to know what it is?
Chestnut Brown! This warm, toasty color had us daydreaming of Thanksgiving turkeys, cozy cashmere sweaters, and rich leather sofas in front of a roaring fire.
After much discussion, my winning Chestnut Brown Pinterest board couldn’t be stopped this month. To me, it’s the color equivalent to a warm hug — it’s inviting and welcome in every kind of room, from modern to the most traditional.
Managing Editor Lili voted for Chestnut because “This rich brown with its red undertones feels just right for November. We’re all hunkering down for cold weather and this cozy, cozy color warms everything from hair to sweaters to sofas.”
Chestnut Brown is like hot chocolate with a pinch of cinnamon. What say you, intrepid Design Happens readers? Do you welcome this toasty color into your home this time of year?
