On Aug. 22, it will officially be fall season! We never really see a season change here in Southern California, so I’m jealous of all the areas where there is a dramatic change in color of the scenery! So, with the arrival of fall, that means it’s time for our 2017 fall flowers board as inspired by Pantone’s color report!
This season’s color palette is a beautiful mix of shades that include classic fall tones like Tawny Port, a rich plum burgundy color, and Autumn Maple, a warm burnt orange shade. These are offset by some cooler colors like the calm blue tone of Marina and light pink shade of Ballet Slipper. For the first time Pantone released two different color palettes to reflect differences between New York and London. We took our inspiration from the New York palette:
On our 2017 fall flowers color board, you’ll find our pick of flowers as inspired by Pantone’s color report. Some colors may not have an exact floral match, but we’ve picked blooms and greens inspired by Pantone’s palette and put it all on the color board below. You’ll also find links (below the board) to each flower on our site so you can see more images, learn more and buy the flowers you love!

For us here at Flower Muse, we’re ready for the new season. With the disruption that Hurricane Irma caused for a huge part of south eastern US and the floral industry, I think everyone is ready to move forward and get everything back into gear! With the fall season that means Thanksgiving and the holidays are just around the corner so soon things will be bustling!
