Posted by Gian Luca Fiori on Tue, Nov 06, 2012 @ 11:30 AM

Pantone's fall 2012 color palette provides incredible inspiration for home remodeling projects this fall. As Rachel Roy describes it, "The color palette contrasts between dark tones of granite, slate and soil with pops of bright pinks and purples; prominent colors of warm and cool shades of Green and Berry with brushed Coppers are combined in beautiful silhouettes."
