Dark Autumn sits between True Autumn and Dark Winter on the seasonal flow chart. Dark Autumn colours are the darkest,  and brightest in Autumn family. They are also rich, less warm and more saturated than other Autumn seasons.

Neighboring the Dark Winter according to flow theory makes the Dark Autumn palette cooler and brighter than other Autumns.

Dark Autumn Colour Palette


Technically you can create colour combinations by mixing and matching colours in your colour palette. You can combine your accent colours with your basic colours or with your dark or light neutral colours.

Dark Autumn Colour Combination Examples

DARK AUTUMNs have dark and warm undertones in their palette. They are also more rich and saturated compared to other Autumn palettes.

Since you have medium to high contrast between your features, you can mirror that by combining opposite hues in your palette , but avoid adding too many accent colours in your combinations. Complementary, analogous or somewhat triadic combinations are good options for you. They provide high contrast, but not overwhelming look.  Monochromatic combinations would make you look dull and faded. 

You can pair dark and light colours in order to create high level of contrast. You can also combine dark colours with your bright accent colours in your palette. Black and white is not in your colour palette since they have cool undertones. You have different shades of brown, grey, beige and taupe instead.


Patters should contain only the dark autumn colours and have medium to high contrast between them, they should not be too bright or light. Earthy colour patterns and figures, leaves, wood shapes, natural elements will be the best options. Medium to big scale loosely arranged elements would combine with your natural look. Avoid small floral patters or patterns contain big sharp geometric shapes.

Red and yellow tone stones such as Garnet, Red Jasper, Heliodor and Sphene are good stone alternatives for your deep and rich colour combinations.
