My Favorite Autumn Color Palettes

Yay for autumn! 

My 5 favorite things about autumn...

1. The crisp, cool air and the smell of autumn. 

2. Sweaters & hoodies and cozy fall clothes.

3. Campfires and bonfires - there is nothing like a marshmallow toasted over a campfire! Yum.

4. Autumn foods! Bring on the stews, cream soups, and autumn roasts!

5. The colors of fall! 

Okay, so to be honest, I have a lot more than 5 favorite things about fall...but my whole point of this post is to celebrate the colors. For this, we look to nature, and to food. Trees, woods, the changing colors of leaves, autumn fruits and vegetables, and spices to name a few. 

Check out these great autumn color palettes and be inspired. Happy fall!

Have a great week!


  1. I love all the color palettes you've shown. Here in southeastern NC, fall comes a little later than our home state of Ohio. I would much rather wear clothing to stay warm than to try to stay cool! From my window, I can see the tiny red leaves of the Live Oak. It's starting to change, but it never does change all the way. Our Live Oak, in the back yard, doesn't change much at all, but it does lose leaves. We are surrounded by many pines and firs, so they will stay green. If I remember correctly, I will watch some trees turn yellow. The grass will slowly turn a yellow-brown, which is not real attractive, but when it starts to green up in the spring, we will be happy. There's not much of a change from where I sit, but when we go out, we will see reds and maroons, yellows and oranges. For now, we are still at about 80 during the day. So...fall's coming... On the first day of fall, it is my wife's birthday. We look forward to that.

    1. I'm in eastern PA, and what I see mostly in my front and backyards is either still green or already brown! Our grass usually stays pretty much green, and then gets covered with snow. I heard they are calling for a hard winter this year. I guess we will just have to wait and see.Happy Birthday to your wife!
