Art.com's color-based suggestions to enhance any room of the home or office include:

  • Classic Neutrals: Modern meets casual thanks to neutral colors like camel with touches of gray, which offer a simple and contemporary look.  The tone-on-tone effect is often found to be soothing.
  • Soft and Subtle Pastels: Light colors found in botanical prints and maps create an instant vintage feel—one of the season's enduring trends.
  • Warm and Cool Tones: Foster an earthy, inviting energy by combining orange with red hues inspired by worldly shades of India and Morocco.  For a cooler look, turquoise and teal accents can conjure up thoughts of the ocean or clear skies.
  • Rich Colors: Deep shades of purple and even yellow, when mixed with gray or charcoal, can completely transform a room's energy into something regal yet inviting.
  • Trendy Metallics: Adding sheen and luxuriousness to a room is easy thanks to metallic (gold, silver and copper) wall decor—from custom-framed mirrors that add a reflective glow, to gold-framed and metallic accented fine art pieces.

Additionally, Art.com recommends using these colors to create a personal gallery by hanging wall art with frames in different sizes, shapes and colors to create an engaging, dramatic and unique statement.  Further, the leading wall art retailer now offers a collection of area rugs and mirrors of all shapes and sizes to help customers complete their decorating vision.

"Featuring modern artists and classic masters, Art.com's fall collection is as an accessible resource for anyone who wants to refresh and customize their home in a beautiful, impactful yet affordable way this season," said Ivy Ross, Chief Merchandising Officer for Art.com, Inc. "We've identified color-based trends that help customers create warm, casual and sophisticated spaces throughout their homes.  We're also excited to bring contemporary mirrors and accent rugs into the mix this year—finishing touches that help complete a room's look at a very reasonable price."
