Oxblood for Fall 2012

Everywhere I look for fall it’s all about the oxblood.  The colour sits warmly between red and brown and is a close relative to burgundy.  It’s such a rich colour that it just spells cosy!  Imagine oxblood paired with gray, black, red, orange, navy.  It goes well with so many other Fall/Winter colours that it will no doubt be a great wardrobe staple.

I love the hit of red with the oxblood coat, above, and the various layers of the tone in the shot below.

And of course the runways translates to interiors:

Pure saturation in the picture above creates a luxurious design scheme.  Rich textures and layers keep it interesting.

The pop of colour in this deep red sofa, above, catches the eye in this otherwise neutral space.

How will you use oxblood this fall?  Will you wear it or bring it into your home or both?
