We're surrounded by lots of trees, which are beautiful, but they have lots of leaves. That fall ... and fall ... and fall ... And then have to be raked up. Just thinking about it makes me tired. Maybe this year a magic wind will just swish them all away! Hey! It could happen.
But I digress. What I'm going to talk about today are the Pantone Institute's fall color forecasts. These are their picks:
We'll all have our favorites, but for decorating, mine are Mykonos Blue, Turbulence and Acai.
Here is some eye candy of my favorites in use. First, Mykonos Blue as an accent wall paired with a navy.
And here's an eye popping duo of the Mykonos Blue and the Pantone color of the year, Emerald, with some Acai thrown in.
Now for some Turbulence. I love this color for decorating. First a wall in the house of the Graphics Fairy, which is absolutely to die for if you ask me.

Here it is paired with taupe and cream.
Here's another shot of the gray and white. Just love it.

For the Acai I like it mostly as an accent color:
How about it for kitchen cabinets?
And here it is paired with Turbulence.
How about you? What are your favorites? Will you be using any of them in your decorating this season?
