The Soft Side of Fall - A Pastel Color Palette for the Season

Earlier in the year we posted a selection of rugs to go with the Pantone Spring color collection. Now, as we move into Autumn, a post by Melissa Michaels on the My Colortopia Blog inspired us to pull together a set of complementary rugs to go with the Glidden colors for Fall 2015. 

Take Autumn in another color direction - Soft Pastels for Fall! So often Autumn is associated with those deeply saturated golds, oranges, rusts and browns. This palette is a nice departure and offers a wonderfully fresh decorating option. Which do you like best? 

This contemporary striped rug by Jaipurworks with French Grey, Fostiria Glass Blue & Toasted Oatmeal: 

Sereneity by Karastanwould combine well with Fostiria Glass Blue, Afternoon Tea & Dry Goods Neutral: 

The overall coral tones make this rug by Momeniis a good choice for Indian Summer Orange, Dry Goods Neutral & French Grey: 

An attention grabber, this handwoven rug would combine well with Racy Red, Capri Rose, Dry Good Neutral:

Kaleidoscope, from Oriental Weavers is a sure fire way to go for Racy Red: 

Pretty Brio coordinates well with Indian Summer Orange, Afternoon Tea & Peach Medley: 

Bonus: Another Kaleidoscope by Sphinx (Oriental Weavers) will pretty much be a hit with any of the colors in this palette:

Whether you choose to keep with the soft pastel or go with something more bold, this palette is a sure winner. These are just a few of the many options to choose from if you decide to paint with one of these Glidden colors. Which is your favorite?

I love the color match for each room, that indian summer orange happens to be one of my favorite colors , I actually have that in my smaller bathroom.. I am so loving the rugs you chose here also. I really loving the Pretty Brio and the Kaleidoscope. I think each rug has its own personality in itself, sort of loll

Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better.
