Fall is finally here, and even after one of the most beautiful summers in recent years we can’t help but look forward to chilly mornings, pumpkin spice lattes, cosy sweaters, and all the glorious colors. To mark the start of the season, we turn to industry leader in color systems and styling – Pantone’s fall color report for homes and interiors, and the hues are as dreamy as you might expect. From rich ochres like Exuberance and Pumpkin Spice, to earthy mosses and warm pastels that remain fresh throughout the year, this fall’s colors are nostalgia re-imagined. Or if you’re feeling edgier, you could opt for a cool, steely palette with Forged Iron, Travertine, and Anthracite – moody, industrial chic in all its glory.
The color palette of a room is key to determining its character, and nowhere does it play a greater role than walls, and soft furnishings like window treatments and upholstery. The once humble curtain is now a significant player in indoor aesthetics, with a cornucopia of options available including custom drapery, roman shades, luxurious valances, and forever popular blinds. Toronto offers a rich selection of window treatments if you’re looking to shop local, including our showroom on Samor Road. The interplay of colour, texture, and scale is what goes into the creation of your dream space – from the size of your wardrobe doors to the fall of your drapes, so what’s better than being able to experience that in person before you zero in on The One?
Trends are fleeting and ephemeral, and last year’s fashions have begun to look dated already but style – timeless, classic style is eternal. This is especially important when choosing decor for your home, especially investment pieces like drapery. Luckily, there’s more than one way to interpret contemporary classic, and find a style that suits your personality, whether your tastes run into wispy, bohemian sheers, or luxe velvets. And we, at Lerner Interiors, are here to help you make sense of the bewildering array of options you might feel confronted by at first, so you can find the look that will complement your eclectic tastes and unique space for years to come.
