Maybe it’s wishful thinking, but every year around this time I start to pine for the cooler temps and chill in the air of the fall season.
These fantasies come about right around mid-August, when the weather outside feels like an unrelenting steam shower, basically banished to the indoor areas with A/C.
Oh, I can’t wait for the days when it’s not 100 degrees at 10pm…
I’m already fantasizing about my fall wardrobe, and how to transition from the summertime tanks and flip flops to scarves and booties (I’m well aware that there are some of you out there that can already wear these in the summer months *cough* Whatever. *cough*…).
The main item I’m coveting is the vintage looking army green safari jacket. Lightweight, chic, and perfect for chilly fall nights… sigh. It’s the perfect piece to wear with both white jeans or riding boots.
So what does this jacket have to do with interiors?
Well, a lot.
The key is in the color. The army green (or even an olive green) is the perfect hue to complement the brighter, bolder summer color palette, and tone it town just enough to transition into the (generally) deeper fall palette.
Just like the jacket helps to bridge the seasonal divide, so does the army color. Pair it with bright emerald for a modern way to soften the color of the year, or deep navy for an updated nautical feel. Or even work it in with plum for a revival of the fun color combo (above photo Angie Hranowski via Decor Pad).
Remember – fall is just around the corner.
Even if it’s still over 100 degrees outside…
