Does time rush by for you as well? It seemed like we at Let it B were just talking about fall colors and now fall is upon us again. Well, not really, since we don’t have four seasons in the Philippines. Nevertheless, I don’t want to miss talking about fall colors because they are warm, earthy, and just downright beautiful. What’s not to love about the tawny colors of autumn!

Here is the video we made about fall last year. It is very evocative of the season that poet Keats called a “‘season of mists and mellow fruitfulness”.

Read about the palettes Autumn Rusts, Romantic Russets, and Mellow Yellows that we prepared for you last year in this post. The video and post show interior spaces that carry the colors of fall, and are excellent as ‘picspiration’ as one reader put it.

More color inspirations can be seen in the post Autumnal Palettes: Fall Color Inspirations for Your Home. So here are more ‘picsprations’ for you to enjoy from that post.

Autumn Rusts

Some of the beautiful things about autumn are the colors of the trees when the leaves turn, the spiciness of cinammon in apple pie, the orange goodness of pumpkin soup which we can get here (think ginataang kalabasa or sabaw ng kalabasa). There is also Nature’s comforting rhythm as living creatures prepare for the winter cold ahead, and leaves fall to undress trees. It is a special feeling to walk in the woods when paths are covered with tawny leaves and you can hear the crunch underfoot with every step you take. Mushrooms sprout on fallen branches, on tree trunks, or on the damp earth. If you’re prone to fantasy, you could almost swear that dwarves are watching you in the shadows.

Fall is about the smell of the earth as temperatures drop from the heat of summer. There’s a freshness to the air, as invigorating as the colors of the palette we call Autumn Rusts.

Romantic Russets

The reds of autumn are deep with brown tones in them. Warm and comforting, the gorgeous shades of the Romantic Russets give a home the perfect vibe for cocooning. There is a feeling of life slowing down, perhaps encouraged by the shortening of days and lengthening of nights. The Scandinavian hygge, loosely translated as “coziness”, comes to mind. Think of sharing a cup of coffee with friends in a café somewhere, or slurping a bowl of la paz bachoy when feeling peckish.

As regards smells, the aroma of cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, and nutmeg come to mind. That and the bracing fragrance of citrus.

Mellow Yellows

Yellows are like sunbeams that brighten living spaces. Just like sunlight energizes our bodies, yellows sparks cheerfulness. In the home, the colors in the Mellow Yellows palette can add zing to a space. Have some dark corners that need some light? Think of yellows. Even a pale shade can lift your spirits. The yellow colors in the palette can work well with the light browns. Use light wood tones for your furniture, add cream or white accessories, for a fresh and contemporary look.

The fall season augurs the coming of winter. But first, there is Halloween, Undas, then All Saints Day before Christmas is upon us. As I said in the beginning of this post, time is going full speed ahead. Still, do take the time to stop and celebrate the beginning of the fourth quarter of 2022, and everything that it brings.
