Step aside summer: autumn is queen of color.


Welcome Home by Trey Speegle

Dear fall,

We didn’t mean to do you like that. We know summer gets all the glory, and folks act like the onset of September is the end of happiness itself. You don’t deserve that, fall. You are fun. You’re flexible. You make the outdoors magical and the indoors an acceptable alternative. You smell better. We can use our ovens again. And it’s perfectly reasonable to drink rosé year-round.

It’s hard to compete with beach days, but if there’s one thing you’ve got dibs on it’s your own unbeatable color scheme. All the leaf peepers know what we mean. Bright golds and yellows, rich browns and burgundys, oranges worth futilely trying to photograph. There’s royalty in those tones, ‘cause autumn is the queen of seasonal colors. And since you, autumn, officially start on Monday, we’ve rounded up some artworks that celebrate sumptuous fall hues, sampled below.
