If you have a hankering to do some permanent redecorating this time of year, consider some toastier autumn colors for your walls. Brown, plum, mustard, taupe and burnt orange all conjure up feelings of coziness, perfect for the colder months. We all know switching out a summer wardrobe for a winter one is as easy as taking our sweaters out of storage and packing the sandals away. The white pants get a final cleaning then move to the rear of the closet and our deep dark tones come to the forefront. It’s a little more complicated with home decor but that doesn’t mean you can’t accessorize differently for the colder months. Maybe it’s time to dig out that charcoal cashmere throw for the sofa or the velvet pillows for your bed. Here’s an article on Houzz, the home decorating website with 35 million monthly viewers about Autumnal paint colors. Deep Wall Colors for Fall. Work by Amy Krane is featured in it.

Houzz, the home decor and remodeling website with 35 million monthly users and The American Society of Interior Designers , ASID, have launched a new designer showcase. In it you’ll find interiors which embody the spirit of interior design going forward 40 years into the 21st Century. What were they looking for? Designs which consider wellness and sustainability, which enrich lives by its choices. My go-to vehicle to get there? You guessed it. Color! Here is my submission, an upstate Hudson Valley home. “Like” it on Houzz if you agree it embodies the mashup of patterns, textures and styles which describe our modern lives. #ImpactOfDesign
My design statement: Color feeds the soul; lifts us up, soothes us and enriches our lives. This Hudson Valley colonial hosts a cohesive palette which is all personality. The decor is eclectic, reflecting a global attitude. Materials chosen keep sustainability in the forefront with reclaimed wood, repurposed trees and vintage metal seating. Design going forward will reflect individuality and self expression to an even greater degree than we’ve seen. Our homes reflect our ideas, our travels, our dreams, ourselves. Texture plays a supporting role to color. Like modern people, this home is the ultimate admixture of provenance, period and style. All together it makes us who we are.
