Fall may officially be a few weeks away, but I’m sensing signs of the new season all around: cooler nights, bins of apples at the farmers’ market and yes, even the first fall leaves.

It was fall’s favorite fruit that inspired Kayla to pitch Apple Green for September’s Color of the Month. In her own words: “It’s time to sharpen those pencils, because school is back in session. Forget classic red apples — we’re all about modern green.”

Now that Labor Day’s end-of-summer parties are behind us, this crisp, collegiate color just felt right. Take a look at some of our favorite ways to use this hue, and tell us: Is this color the apple of your eye?

Apple green is slightly punchier than jadeite and cooler than bright lime. The hue is also adaptable: It takes on a rustic, country vibe in the rustic kitchen above, while it leans more modern when paired with yellowy citron.

Getting organized for fall? Add simple apple green touches to your closet through crates and boxes, or go big like designer Brian Patrick Flynn did here with a chevron-striped painted floor.

Green is both calming and energizing all at once; even a new bowl or plate on the kitchen shelves can brighten your space as the green fades outside. See how this bowl brightens up the home of Young House Love bloggers Sherry and John Petersik?

Or, add an apple green throw and lamp like designer Jennifer Jones did here for an instant bedroom update.

So, Design Happens readers, what’s your verdict? Does this color get a passing or failing grade? Will you use it at home this fall? Do tell.
