The quintessential fall shade, Autumn Maple is an amber-orange that brings warmth to this chilly season.  There are a number of seasonal shades from the Pantone Fall/Winter 2018 Color Report that we adore, but we have to say that Autumn Maple is our favorite for November.  This color is ideal for fall, event the name has autumn in it.  Not exactly orange, not quite red, it reminds us of walks through a fall forest.

The cozy feeling of this color makes it prefect for fall celebrations.  Pairing this reddish-orange hue with a cool muted blue balances it out and adds some visual drama.

Designers like Carolina Herrera are making statements in Autumn Maple and other orange tones.   Universally flattering, it's a shade that we think almost anyone can wear.

Focusing on the amber tones of this shade, it pairs beautifully with an eggplant purple.  Touches of the orange, autumn maple, in the flowers gives this looks a more subdued look.

The brown undertones of this orange hue makes it easier than your typical orange to work with in interiors.  When used properly it can add sophistication and warmth to a space.

This spicy color is a perfect choice for fall; that's another reason it's our current color crush. Whether as a solid, or as one component tone in a new linen pattern, we're sure you'll find a new respect for orange!
