Trending for Fall: Amethyst

The hotel I stayed in on my trip had very vibrant colors and modern decor.  I have to admit it was an example of modern done wrong (more on that coming soon).  I tend favor more traditional styles, but I can appreciate modern if done right.  One thing I did appreciate about the decor of the hotel, was its use of beautiful tones of amethyst.

A regal tone once reserved for royalty, the gem toned hue is showing up everywhere from fashion accessories to fabrics to housewares.  It is such a deep, rich and smokey color, I think it transitions well into fall.  It is also similar to Radiant Orchid which was Pantone’s color of the year. See how luxe it feels in the rooms below.

I know it is not your typical fall color, but isn’t it so luxurious?  Have you incorporated any amethyst hues into your home.  You can see my jewel toned console table here.
