5 Crisp Color Palettes for Autumn

Fall is in the air, and inspiration for another colorful season is all around!

Autumn is the season of scarves, waffle sweaters and sweet, sweet Pumpkin Spice Lattes. It’s also a season of beautiful colors: hues of burnt orange and earthy browns and moody blues. Here are some color palettes to inspire your coloring for the next three months!

The iridescence of feathers as bird soar overhead on their migratory paths is a true sign of changing seasons. This mix of peach, orange, burgundy, gray and subtle blues has us soaring with the rest of the flock!

A rich gradient from brown to orange to deep red invokes that feeling of grabbing a handful of fallen leaves and tossing them to glint in the slanted light.

Nothing says fall like a pumpkin patch! This palette features a diverse patch of pumpkins, squash and gourds that range from deep, sparkly blue-black to more subtle shared of green, pink and orange.

On an autumn stroll, you might see tranquil blue waters set alight by a floating layer of bright orange leaves — a beautifully striking combination on paper, as well as in nature!

These leaves have their vibrant oranges offset by deep purple and burgundy for a moody yet striking palette that’s as rich as it is autumn-y.

Do you have any color combos you like to bust out as the leaves start turning? Let us know on Facebook, or tag us at #gelwriter on Instagram!
