Fall decorating with a modern twist.Posted 10/02/2019
As the weather cools down and the holiday season starts, we all like our time spent indoors to be as cozy as possible. This makes fall the perfect opportunity to establish what festive décor means for you. Not every home was meant for the traditional orange pumpkins and fall colored foliage. If you find yourself struggling with how to make seasonal decoration flow with your aesthetic, look no further. From nontraditional colors to a more modern approach to desert themed foliage, we have some great ideas about how every home can personalize fall décor.
The modern approach.
Whites and neutral tones are a great way to elevate traditional design aspects of fall. It’s amazing how some white paint can transform simple pumpkins and gourds into something that feels entirely new and chic. Combine with some candles on your mantel, wood table or front patio and voilà! You have an incredibly tasteful cool toned fall palette that still feels as festive as ever.
Think outside the pumpkin.
While pumpkins may be considered the mascot of fall, there are plenty of other ways to create a rustic feel that’s more authentic to your home design. You can start with more desert themed greens like Eucalyptuses, succulents and sage displayed anywhere throughout the living area that contains plenty of wood accents. Pair these with different seasonal veggies like zucchini squash, apples, figs and herbs for a rustic look that’s both effortless and impressive.
Traditional shapes. Nontraditional colors and patterns.
This one’s for the craft lovers. Traditional pumpkins and gourds make the perfect canvas for any fall DIY decorations. When it comes to what you paint on them, the sky is the limit. Whether you want to seamlessly match your home décor or add a little texture with a fun new pattern, the season can be unique every year. This also offers a safer and longer lasting alternative to carving pumpkins that the whole family can enjoy.
Use these subtle tips and tricks to truly make the holidays your own. Before you know it, you’ll be kicking back in a festive yet modern space that feels both cozy and fresh all season long.
