Color Palette: Shades Of Style From Nanette Lepore Fall 2012 (PHOTOS)

Fashion Week came and went in New York, but we're still thinking about some of our favorite looks from the runway. For example, this stylish ensemble by Nanette Lepore, which mixes tawny yellow, pink, baby blue, and a deep, almost black, turquoise. There's not doubt that bursts of pink, green and blue can really stand out against neutral hues, but we're pleasantly surprised to find that they are just as vibrant when combined with a bright yellow. The combination is fun but there's also a touch of the unexpected.

To get the paint swatches for our homes, we used 'Chip It', Sherwin-Williams' color palette generator tool. This palette inspired us to do a quick search to see how these colors can be used to stunning effect in different rooms, from a living room that features bright bursts of yellow and pink to an orangey-yellow dining room that's decorated with a pale blue antique-style console cabinet. We also came across this soothing bedroom that is outfitted with a great upholstered yellow headboard with with a green trim, which really helps brighten up the space.
