Welcome to the Whitewood Home blog! I am so happy you are here. My house is in a state of confusion between fall and Christmas decor, so I decided that I would reflect back on my fall decor and give you a little home tour. When getting ready for the transition of each new season, I often look for one particular look or object to gain inspiration. This year was no different.
My inspiration for this year’s fall decor came from heirloom pumpkins. I was drawn to the light pastel greens and whites and decided to carry that theme throughout my house. I also used much of what I had from previous seasons, such as the eucalyptus picks and other greenery. Scroll to the bottom of this post for details on all the sources I used to create this fall look.
I wanted my space to have a natural look, so I kept my color scheme neutral and simple. Many of my pumpkins I was able to transform with a little bit of chalk paint.
I kept up my eucalyptus greenery from the spring and added green and white pumpkins to get this look on the mantel. I loved the look of the various textures all while keeping the color palette neutral.
We have a large floating shelf in our living room that I love to decorate for each passing season. I found this small scroll with words from one of my favorite authors and used a hanging eucalyptus spray to give it a cascading look.
For the dining room, I also tried to keep things simple. I tied in the braided pumpkins and eucalyptus look on my table, and used a burlap runner to complete the look.
For the rest of the house, I sprinkled little bits of greenery and pumpkins to give the space a cohesive look. I truly loved how it turned out and was sad to see it go. However, I have a feeling that I am going to fall in love with my Christmas decor this year. Stay tuned, friends!
