Color Crush: Cognac

Thanks for bearing with the sporadic posts – my hubby and I have been pretty busy lately and haven’t had any time to spare! This week’s Color Crush is equal parts sophisticated and livable and the ideal color for fall: cognac. Cognac is cozy, warm, and just dark enough to complement anything else in your closet or home. Take a look at some of my favorite ways to wear / incorporate this elegant shade this fall!

For Your Closet


Cognac is the ideal color for your fall wardrobe because it pairs well with anything else you own (seriously) and looks luxe on any budget. If you find yourself drawn to things with an equine flair, too, you’ll especially enjoy adding cognac pieces to your closet since many of them hearken back to their classic American horse-riding roots. Ease into the shade with a coat of rich nail lacquer or a funky phone case, and go head-to-toe with the shade by adding a brown smoky eye, statement necklace, and butt-kicking booties.


For Your Home


Cognac is one of the richest-looking and most gender-neutral colors for your home. Whether you want to update in a big way with comfy cognac furniture or just spruce up your decor with a few accent pieces, one thing is certain: guys and gals alike will feel at home and ready to relax. Grab a few candles, trays, bookends, or pillows to test out the shade in your home, and if you really want to go for it, add in a rug, club chair, wall art, or furniture!
