This fall, we are seeing rich, yummy browns coming back in fashion and interiors. These aren’t your boring, bland or basic browns. We’re talking sumptuous shades of camel and cognac. We like them best when paired with bright pops of color.

This Prada ad mixes cognac with peeks of royal blue, turquoise and teal.


And Fendi shows that camel and blues are a match made in heaven.

In interiors, the camel or cognac colors often come in the form of buttery soft leather sofas, chairs, and even beds!

Note how the blue accents (pillows, lamps and accent wall) in these interiors look as great with the cognac as the Fendi purse does with the camel coat.

Another Fall favorite is what we’re calling curry—a deep, rich gold reminiscent of turmeric. Curry is a good match for greens as well as black/gray/white.

Dot & Bo recently curated an entire collection based on this color (they also featured a collection of cognac too).

Used correctly, curry makes a great statement in interiors . Try it on an accent wall . . .
