New Color Trends for Fall 2012

Fall: what a perfect excuse for change around your home and in your wardrobe!  This autumn, fashion designers are combining versatile mocha, grey and gold neutrals with a boost of spirited hues.  Where the muted rust of autumns past blended quietly with the natural scenery, this year's palette sets out to rival it with vivid tangerine, jewel-tone greens and a brilliant blue surpassing even the clearest autumn sky.  Rounding out the palette are feminine shades of rich lavender, smoky rose and a sizzling pink sure to warm up those chilly days.

Whether you're looking for fun seasonal decor or that perfect fall scarf, try out these hot new hues for an instant style update…
