When we think of fall colors our mind typically goes to yellow, orange, red, and brown hues. As the leaves change into these beautiful colors and the fall foliage creates a stunning landscape, our home decor and fashion trends reflect the change of season, too. While they are often influenced by the natural tones of Mother Nature, every year we see new color trends to help brighten up the tone of fall. This year, Pantone is predicting unique color trends for the 2021 fall and winter, and here at Ah Sam Floral Co., the best florist in San Mateo, we are pairing these hues with our favorite flowers.
Pantone’s Fall Color Trends & Your Favorite Fall Flowers
Hunter green has been a favorite fall shade for years, but in 2021, Pantone is honoring an “olive branch” green hue and a bold “leprechaun” green hue. Both tones create a fresh and uplifting mood, not to mention are said to bring good luck. Some popular green blooms like orchids and hydrangea, in addition to natural greenery, can bring these trending colors into fall flower arrangements.
Deep, bright, and light blues are all “in” this season. Pantone’s “rhodonite,” “Mykonos blue,” and “spring lake” cover all of our favorite shades of this calming and relaxing color. Finding blue blooms is easy as delphinium, hyacinth, bellflower, hydrangea, iris, orchids, cornflower, and forget-me-not are just some classic blue blooms.
Typically, we see a great amount of yellow this time of year, whether in nature or interior design and decor. Pantone’s “illuminating yellow” is not only the color of the year for 2021, but offers a happy, uplifting, hopeful, and strong tone to the lineup of trending autumn colors. Fall floral bouquets often incorporate this shade by utilizing sunflowers, mums, daisies, roses, gladiolus, and Craspedia billy balls.
Transitioning from the summer season to the autumn season, many people find themselves putting away vibrant pinks. However, according to Pantone, these fuchsia tones can stay along with your beloved spring pastel pinks. Their “pale rosette” and “fuchsia fedora” are here for fall and adding some graceful and flirty elements to the season. This also means that you can count on your beloved pink roses, alstroemeria, peonies, carnations, gerbera daisies, lilies, and many more, to stick around a few months more.
From a deep, warm merlot to a fierce, bright crimson, red is a fall favorite year after year, and 2021 is proving to be no exception. Pantone’s “fire whirl” has its rightful place in this year’s trending autumn colors. To embrace this classic hue, fill your home with seasonal flowers like red roses, carnations, and mums.
“No white after Labor Day” has become a thing of the past, and Pantone is on board with incorporating “coconut cream” and “soybean” into autumn home decor, fashion, and accessories. While these off-white tones are being celebrated, white blooms like hydrangea, daisies, carnations, orchids, calla lilies, anemone, and more, are simply elegant and pure choices to bring into your living room this fall.
Pantone’s “root beer” and “adobe” can be found almost anywhere you look this fall. Although you may not spot too many brown flowers, these tones do make for an eye-catching and balancing accent color in autumn arrangements. With the dark brown inside of sunflowers and daisies and decorative twigs, sticks, dried leaves, and lotus pods that stand out among a slew of colorful blooms, brown is a “must” for both bouquets and fall aesthetics.
Fall flower arrangements are just as breathtaking, fresh, and fabulous as spring and summer flower arrangements. They provide natural and living decor for your home to truly liven up and freshen up your home. We are certain that you will find the perfect autumn blooms here at Ah Sam Floral Co. to match the trends of the season and seamlessly blend into your home decor.
