Persimmon is this season’s hottest color
Pumpkin is well and good, but this season we've noticed a new color popping up on the home-design blogs and runways: persimmon (the marriage of orange and tomato), which works well in small doses in just about every room in a house. Plus, it will still feel timely after you've trashed the jack-o'-lantern.
Kitchen Make your kitchen feel vibrant and spicy with unexpected bursts of persimmon like this punchy KitchenAid mixer ($300) or the Leif tart server ($15) in fiery Valencia. Add permanent fixtures and furniture--a gorgeous retro light ($745) or a sleek and space-saving bar stool ($248)--to amplify the impact.
Living Room We're also bringing persimmon into our entertaining spaces with the help of sleek, modern furnishings like a metal side table ($129) or a chunky stool ($129). We absolutely love this Blu Dot sleeper sofa ($1,800), which we'd pair with a royal blue or chocolate-brown throw.
Bedroom No decorating makeover would be complete without a trip to the bedroom. Cozy up in delicately printed sheets ($68 to $268) or bold floral bedding ($40 to $60). Add Anthropologie curtains ($148 to $208) and a round rattan lamp shade ($33) for an instantly lush effect.
