The leaves, they are a’changin. (Cue the Bob Dylan.) Now that it’s officially fall, I’m seeing the first few leaves flutter to the ground. I love this bridge between the seasons, when the summer plants fade and the very first fall color shows up on the lawn. The absolutely gorgeous weather doesn’t hurt, either.

 Leaf Wall Art | Green Shoes | Park Bench

Take a cue from Mother Nature like Cuppet Architects did here with a display of prime leaf specimens behind brilliant green bottles. Or, just wear green shoes while you rake up some of said leaves or enjoy the seasonal show from a park bench.

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?

Almost everyone has that color they love, but can never, ever wear. Mine is neon yellow. It’s bright, it’s cheerful, it’s uplifting…and it looks terrible on me.  Since it’s a no-go for my wardrobe, I make up for that by obsessing over bright yellow interior accents. I especially like the color when paired with classic black and white. (I mean, what other color combo has a whole blog devoted to it?) The bright yellow just draws your eye in, whether it’s on a tabletop or peeking out of bathroom vanity drawers.

A little goes a long way with this vibrant color, though — I don’t think I’m ready to sport an all-yellow room anytime soon, but I would happily rock a bright yellow barn door.

Remember a few weeks ago when a good part of the D-Happ staff was obsessed with all things watermelon? Kayla made the juicy fruit the topic of her Mood Board Monday. Allie showed us five ways to craft with watermelon. And I even pitched in with a watermelon-inspired Tuesday Huesday. So when Nina, HGTV.com’s entertainment manager, introduced a watermelon-themed Pinterest board to the Color Team, it wasn’t exactly a hard sell. That’s right: Bright, juicy watermelon is our newest Color of the Month!

Juicy Melon Margarita

August is the height of watermelon season: Think big-as-your head slices of fruit pulled straight from the icebox, dribbling down your chin.  Or, if cocktails are more your speed, try this melon-filled margarita recipe.

In my shared home, my bedroom is my sanctuary. It’s my sleeping quarters, my dressing room, my screening room and my library. It’s the perfect place to have a quiet moment to myself, and for this reason I have spent quite a bit of time making it a fun, peaceful place to relax. The color scheme in your bedroom most definitely plays a part in how the room can make you feel. For this reason, I chose light gray, white and yellow for a soft, calming feel. Maybe you’re more of a bright orange or deep red kind of person. These bedrooms from Designers’ Portfolio prove that any color can make a huge impact – so choose wisely.

The bold color palette of Saguaro Palm Springs is the work of renowned architects Peter Stamberg and Paul Aferiat, of New York-based Stamberg Aferiat Architecture. The property has been infused with hues that reflect the indigenous flowers of the Southwestern desert.

This photo is pretty Pin-worthy, don’t you think?

February is one of those months that can’t seem to make up its mind weather-wise. Snow flurries fell in East Tennessee this weekend, all while my yard’s first daffodils bloomed away. Robin’s egg blue (our pick for February’s color of the month) is perfect for this unpredictable period: it’s cool enough for winter, yet it brings to mind all that’s to come when the ground thaws: think Easter egg hunts and spring celebrations.

Adding gold and neutrals to the mix, like designer Katie Ridder did in the dining room on the left, creates a traditional palette with just a hint of luxury.

Happy New Year! All of us at HGTV are home ringing in the new year in our pajamas, but we didn’t forget to vote on our first Color of the Month of 2013 before the offices closed. And what color had us ready to embrace the coming year? It’s warm, it’s shiny, it glows…it’s GOLD!

Gold Color of the Month January

Color Team member Jill pitched Gold in December, but it didn’t make the cut for 2012. But then Kayla put her spin on it and suddenly we all had the Midas Touch. After the festivities of New Years Eve, the richness of gold just feels right.

So what say you? Are you feeling the warm glow of gold to kick off the new year? How would you decorate with this always-in-style metallic?

Here at HGTV.com, we’re already fans of saturated, moody emerald green — we even chose it as our September Color of the Month! So we were thrilled when we heard that color authority Pantone crowned the color its 2013 Color of the Year.

This sophisticated shade has slowly worked its way into fashion and home, from red carpet looks to vibrant home accents. Pantone considered the color’s emotional appeal, too: “Symbolically, emerald brings a sense of clarity, renewal and rejuvenation, which is so important in today’s complex world,” remarked Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, in today’s press release.

One of the hue’s best qualities is its ability to be both luxurious and casual, both modern and classic. Designer Andrea Schumacher gave the classic white kitchen a twist by painting this home’s island an unexpected emerald green and pairing the hue with blue floral wallpaper and Murano glass chandeliers.
