Fall is almost here so if you are working with sellers that want to spruce up the interior of their homes with fresh paint and they don’t want to do traditional white or beige this is the time of the year when sellers can get experimental with dark colors. Dark paint colors will make buyers feel like they are settling into a warm and cozy cocoon for the winter. Dark paint colors are very much on trend for fall and some of the hottest dark paint color trends for fall are:


Everyone has the blues this fall. Moody blues in deep colors like navy, marine, and ocean are very hot with homeowners. Blues are perfect for bedrooms because they are relaxing and soothing instead of stark or somber and they can easily transition to other seasons by changing the bedclothes and other accessories in the room. Dark blue is also great for an accent wall in a living room or a formal dining room and it will add some contrast to an open concept kitchen without being stark or unwelcoming. Whether it’s bold or bright blues are hot for fall.

Gray is definitely having a moment with home designers. Very light silver-gray was all the rage through the spring and summer and now that fall is here dark grays like steel and charcoal are everywhere. Dark gray is a neutral that is unexpected but not boring so many homeowners are using dark gray instead of black to add some sophistication to living rooms and bedrooms. Gray and blue are a popular color combination for fall also.

Claret Red

Reds are a bold choice for interior color but dark reds like merlot and claret are definitely in vogue this fall. Reds are a popular choice for homeowners because they add drama but can also be paired with existing colors like beige and tan to provide a great accent without the homeowner having to repaint the entire room. Claret accent walls, burgundy trim, and rugs with deep reds in them on hardwood floors are all popular looks on design blogs this fall. Homeowners trying to sell their homes this fall can dress up their homes with a touch of seasonal red to offset other colors and make the home more attractive to buyers. One smart idea is to paint white molding in a room in a dark or deep red instead of white to offset the paint color on the walls. A gray-white matte paint on the walls combined with a deep cherry red molding color is a striking color combination that will definitely get the attention of buyers who tour the home and want to move in before the holidays.
