Inspired by Harvest Moon
Oct 12, 2021
Is there anything as lovely as a crisp autumn evening under a bright full moon? After days of scorching summer heat, the fall breeze is a welcome break offering up fun seasonal activities like apple picking, carving pumpkins, and solving corn mazes. So, pull out a warm shawl and a velvet-brim hat, grab your favorite walking companion and maybe a pumpkin spice latte, and take a stroll through the beautiful colors.
Wrap yourself up in fun fall palettes by installing brand new floors this season. We’ve curated a collection of flooring and design inspiration based on the harvest moon. From the pale gray moon to the warm purple hues of twilight, we’ve got a few fall favorites headed your way.
Autumn Color Palettes
Paint by Benjamin Moore
Fall is well-known for its colors as the once-green leaves burst into vibrant hues of purple, red, yellow, and orange before cascading into piles of rich brown. Bring a bit of that lovely fall color inside with linens, pillows, décor, and maybe even a fresh coat of paint. Sprucing up your home now is just good prep so that you’re ready when the family arrives on the holidays.
Down to Earth Tile
Erosion Rock Porcelain by Emser Tile
This beautiful glazed porcelain tile designed by Emser has a gray, earthy hue that pulls out both cool and warm undertones that will brilliantly match your interiors. Alongside its aesthetic appeal, this concrete-look tile has incredible durability, so it can withstand high traffic and even makes an excellent exterior floor. Elevate your outdoor patio this season with outdoor heaters and the warmth of this Erosion tile to make the most of those crisp fall evenings under a brilliant harvest moon.
Vintage Aged Hardwood
Enjoy the rich look of hickory floorboards with our hardwood pick this fall. Amur Hickory by Downs is the perfect flooring companion for your home. Its unique sense of history and character combines the contemporary look of wide-planks with a slightly distressed surface to date it.
