Autumn’s color palette may match your mood this time of year, but remember, fall colors also have year-round staying power.

Parisian Night (DEA184)
Just one look at the deep blue and we’re dreaming of starry starry night skies in Paris. Instead of opting for the edgy faded black accent wall, choose a deep blue like Dunn-Edwards Parisian Night this year and surround yourself with the romance and very essence of the city of love.

Green-Hour.jpg

The Green Hour (DET544)
Fall may bring the bewitching hour, but it also brings our other favorite kind of hour: The Green Hour (DET544). Go green this fall with an accent wall in our just-announced 2018 Color of the Year. This color too draws inspiration from the French capital city. Specifically, turn-of-the-century Paris, when 5 o’clock became known as “The Green Hour” due to the popularity of absinthe. Our 2018 Color of the Year is a darker take, a gray blue-green hue that embodies the timeless sense of mystery and creative revelry of the era.

Want to add some major drama to your room this fall? That’s achievable when you make your room’s accent wall the ceiling. Rhinoceros (DE6327) on the ceiling are some gray skies we definitely don’t want to see clear up any time soon.

Honey Glow (DE5354)
Turn back to the clock to our Dunn-Edwards 2017 color of the year, Honey Glow (DE5354), for the perfect autumnal mustard yellow. This color pairs so well with all of Fall’s colors. It’s the ideal accent wall when it comes to coordinating with all the rest of a room’s autumn decor. Surround your fireplace with pumpkins and colored foliage - and watch the Honey Glow accent wall truly bring the season to life, indoors.
