While I have a fondness for the quiet side of fall, there is also something breathtaking about the colorful changing leaves this time of year! Nature is really the best inspiration when it comes to color and texture. And in the fall, there is something about rust, coral, and orange–they inspire and energize me!

I’ve incorporated several of these beautiful hues in my own home, through my office curtains, in my guest bedroom, in my son’s room and the occasional pillow or other accessory. They are a warm, bright and happy spot in my day!

Here are some fall-inspired rooms with a deliciously beautiful touch of rust, orange and coral. Enjoy!

    I love the soft rusts and the cozy feeling they bring to a room! When I was first married, we started out with almost no furniture and then we splurged and ordered a roomful. I still can’t believe we did that! Anyway…I chose a soft rust velveteen for a pair of tufted tub chairs for my living room. They are still a favorite of mine….comfy and cozy…though they have resided in the basement for many years awaiting a transformation. In a dream world it would be fun to enjoy them from September through November and then trade out for less fall-like colors or have slipcovers made. Hmmm…that gives me an idea!

    Thanks for the lovely tour today, Melissa!

    just took a look at the cupcake article congrats it looked great. What a great time of your life right now I am sure it gets hairy (LOL) nothing to do with dogs, but it is such a great accomplishment. So looking forward to your book and BH&G piece. Have a great day, :)

    I love these colors! They are perfect all year long, but especially in fall. That giant coral curtain on the stairwell is especially beautiful, as well as that kitchen floor. Thanks for sharing….

    A couple of those photos are from Sarah Richardson’s farmhouse — including the dining room with the high paneling + antique bracket. I think recall that rust print wall treatment was actually fabric. Do you remember when Home Depot had paint collections from several different décor magazines? We still have ‘Beeswax’ walls from the late, great Country Home magazine collection. It’s kind of a gold/yellow/mustard color — similar to a vintage yellow ware bowl! . . . and yes, I collect those.

      Yes, Sarah Richardson is one of my very favorites! I love that dining room, and yes I do think it was fabric! :-) Beeswax sounds like a lovely color!!!

    My favorite is the Sawyer Berson room. I love the contrast between the rust colored floor and the turquoise cabinets.

    Beautiful spaces! Especially the Laura McCroskey bedroom with the rust orange wall and the faux taxidermy heads. Thanks for sharing Melissa!

    I recognized the Sarah Richardson rooms immediately. I like her style better than any designer I’ve ever seen. Her work really speaks to me. Lovely post.

    These are my favorite colors! I’m saving this post for design ideas for my entire house!

    I agree, introducing some rust colours to our rooms in autumn is one the easiest ways to celebrate this glorious season. Pillows, blankets, candles and gourds in deep orange shades are just a few of the of the simple items that can give a room an autumnal feeling instantly. As shown in your examples, orange hues also go surprisingly well with many commonly used home decor colours such as greys, blues and taupes.
