Fall is here and we are loving Pantone's warm luscious colour trends for this fall. Deep moody greens, rich smoky navy and gorgeous contemporary pink that are all over interior design right now.
Buying furniture or painting a room in a colour trend can be expensive and a long term commitment. I do not recommend purchasing a $10,000 couch in a colour trend unless you know you are going to love for years! If you are still craving to have some of these colours in your home, we have an easy way to indulge without the expense or commitment. Upcycling a tired piece of furniture or finding a unique piece at your local thrift store is a fantastic way to start. If you want to learn more about upcycling click on the link.

Check out our segment here from CTV Ottawa Morning Live talking about Fall colour trends.
Fusion Mineral Paint's Cranberry
Deep, warm reds are all over design right now and are perfect for Fall. Fusion’s Cranberry gives you that cozy warm feeling you get when you are sitting by the fire. This deep warm red is so versatile, gorgeous on classic pieces, rustic or would be fun and unexpected in contemporary furniture. This little occasional table was the perfect piece for Cranberry, transforming it into an elegant classic piece with a wash of Fusion’s Coal Black to make all of the beautiful detail pop.
FAT Paint Navy State of Mind from the Amanda Forrest Collection
Navy has been tagged one of the season’s hottest colours and this rich classic colour is here to stay. Navy will bring a touch of elegance into your space, it’s like that black dress every women has in her closet. I upcycled this tired, outdated console and transformed it into a statement piece.

Fusion Mineral Paint's Little Lamb
Grey continues to be on trend and is here to stay. Grey is a beautiful neutral colour that offers depth and can be paired with contrasting bold accent colours like teal, oranges,yellow and greens. Fusion’s Little Lamb is a warm but deep grey, elegant but versatile. It can be easily incorporated in most spaces, used on contemporary or Mid Century furniture. This tired french provincial dresser needed some love and was upcycled using Fusion Mineral Paint in Little Lamb with Fusion’s Pearl and Bronze from Fusion’s Metallic Collection.
FAT Paint's Juno
Pink has been front and center in design lately proving it’s not just for little girl’s furniture anymore. Juno is always beautiful on curvy, feminine furniture but I especially love it when it is unexpectedly used in a more contemporary style. This dresser was painted with that in mind with FAT paint in Raven on the bottom with a heavy dry brushing and Juno on the top of the dresser for a bold contrast.
FAT Paint's Cascadia
Celebrating FAT paint’s 5 year anniversary, they have introduced Cascadia, picking up on the gorgeous trend of deep smoky greens this fall. This rich colour adds a luxurious feel to any piece. I transformed this tired Mid Century Modern console and added a fun graphic pattern using FAT Paint's lemongrass, Can’t see me Camo and Shop Door...a little nod to colours of that era. This colour is so versatile and can be used with any style- rustic, modern or classic furniture.
