Pantone Fall 2013 Color Trend: Carafe

This week’s Pantone Fall 2013 Color Trend, epitomizes one of the colors of fall, Carafe.  Carafe is a deep, rich brown that has truly become a color we are not afraid to use.

A brown hue with the name Carafe, definitely makes one think of that brown liquid most have come to love and can’t live without every morning to kickstart one’s day.  You can almost smell coffee in this shade of brown.  I am personally a tea person (I do not like coffee).

Carafe is such a great warm grounding color, perfect for walls in a large room.  You have to be brave enough to use this color in your home.  This color would make such a sumptuous bedroom!

Don’t think of brown as a ‘blah’ shade any longer, Carafe is a glamorous hue and will provide a rich, elegant space.
