7 Autumn Inspired Colour Palettes

…and the codes to use them yourself!

As we get ready to head into the season of change, it’s only appropriate to celebrate that with some autumnal colour! Colour is so important and inspirational – it’s a key player in getting our attention or enticing us to buy something, but it’s also massively charged with meaning, value and emotion.

I love autumn for its colours, its associations with a fresh new start and a feeling of change that comes with it. Autumn is also a reminder that we all cycle through our own seasons too – and we can always start again when we need to hit the reset button!

Check out these 7 autumn inspired colour palettes I’ve collated, everything from contrasting to complementary shades, perfect for inspiring an autumnal rebrand or seasonal project. They also include the codes so you can steal them for your own use!
