Since winter, we’ve been doing the tangerine tango after Pantone dubbed this tangy hue its “Color of the Year.” While tangerine is still alive and kicking for Fall, another color–French Roast–is stylishly simmering its way into the spotlight. One of 10 hues Pantone predicted to be a Fall favorite, this appealing color is quickly finding its way home from fashion runways around the globe.
It’s easy to see why we’re all warming up to French Roast.
Richly painted walls make the furnishings in this bedroom really pop and wrap the room in a cozy nest-like feel.
We love crisp whites as much as you do. Yet, there’s something so inviting about the abundance of brown in this cabin from its natural wood log walls and tabletop to the array of brown antique chairs dating from the 1880s.
This dining room’s handsome taupe walls nearly play second fiddle to the unexpected, one-of-a-kind ceiling overhead crafted of salvaged beadboard in varying shades of weathered brown and turquoise.
Look how stunning Ralph Lauren Home’s Chocolate Souffle paint looks in this reading nook alongside bold red and against modernist decor like this brightly patterned wingback chair and metallic accent table.
Our Mountain View Hickory hardwood flooring (color Fawn, shown here) really showcases the trend with its dramatic graining, hand-scraping and hand-staining that reveal multiple shades of rich brown. And because this is engineered wood flooring, it’s more eco-friendly, using half as many trees as solid wood floors;and are constructed with faster growing, renewable wood for inner piles. All Mannington wood floors use only water-based finishes that contain no VOCs, are more structurally sound and dimensionally stable than solid floors (they won’t buckle, gap, cup or twist) and can be installed below grade as well as direct to concrete (where solid wood cannot).
