This month’s color pick comes from a very important part of our Color Team: YOU! In our recent Color Vs. Color challenge, we pitted past Color of the Month picks against each other and asked you to choose a favorite by repinning your favorite palette. The clear favorite? Coral had more than 1,200 repins, and Pinterest fan Fran says it was “Warm, cool and calm, all at the same time.”
Fran, we agree! While coral is typically considered a summer color, it’s equally chic in fall interiors. That’s why we decided to pick your all-time favorite shade as our October Color of the Month. Read on for 8 fall-perfect ways to use this hue.
Coral + Mustard Yellow

Coral + Gold
As the days grow shorter, metallic accents help reflect light around your space. That’s why cheery coral and bright gold are such a winning fall color combination. Update traditional takes on fall leaf crafts with this gold-and-coral garland from A Fabulous Fete, perfect for a mantel or even a fall wedding.
Coral + Plum
