Fabric is a great place to start looking for color inspiration. These are just a few of our favorites for fall, which come together to showcase a bold color combination. This week’s inspiration, as shown from top to bottom: Comfort Design fabrics in Nahita Plum and Eyecandy Tango, along with a graphic “Towers” fabric in Black and Natural. “Geometrics like those form the 1960s and 70s are back. They are bold and colorful with inspiration from David Hicks,” says Scott Kravet, executive vice president of product development at Kravet, Inc.

Once small and dark, this kitchen and dining room space is now open, light-filled and ready for entertaining. Designer Kevin Walsh of Bear-Hill Interiors used a soft palette of blues, greens and grays to help the open spaces feel cohesive. “In small spaces, it is important not to stop the eye,” says Walsh. Thanks to its serene color palette throughout, this home feels much larger than 2,000 square feet. Learn more about this Heights remodel and read the full story in the October issue here.

The design scheme of this great room evolved from a single accent pillow, seen at the far right in the cream-colored armchair.
