Colors for Fall and Test Your Color IQ

5276 SEVIGNE in red & ivory Fortuny Printed Cottons

That color is important in the design industry is a true understatement. From making pieces stand out to subduing a space, color can set the mood and define a room.

What are the go-to colors this season? Patricia Call, a strategic color and trend analyst, toured the D&D Building and found colors for this fall. The first stop? Fortuny, where our Sevigne in red & ivory was on her radar.

We all know that color is important, but how well can you actually see it? According to a post from Apartment Therapy, “1 out of 255 women and 1 out of 12 men may have some degree of color blindness.”

So what’s your Color IQ? X-Rite offers an online test that challenges you to arrange a variety of color swatches into the correct color gradient. On a scale of 0 to 99, a score of 0 is Perfect Color Acuity and 99 is Low Color Acuity.
