Home Decorating Decorating with Pumpkins

Decorating with Pumpkins

Headquartered in the Berkshires, arguably one of the most beautiful leaf-peeping spots in the country, we take our fall decor very seriously. We like gourds on our mantles and pumpkins scattered throughout our catalog. Our founder incorporates mini pumpkins in her centerpieces and we even sell silk velvet pumpkins finished with real pumpkin stems. Enthusiasm-wise, we know we’re not the only ones. Here are 10 creative ideas for decorating with pumpkins and more this fall.

At Annie’s luxury inn in Lenox, 33 Main, we go all in on seasonal autumn displays. Instead of the usual orange pumpkins and rusty mums, this scene shows off a fresh palette of green and white (with a few touches of pale peach). Planters full of native grasses and ornamental cabbage added leafy greens to the smooth contours of pumpkins and gourds for a loose, lush look.

Outside her home, Rebekah Higgs (aka DIY Mom) decorated her steps with $50 worth of pumpkins and flowers from her local grocery store. “I spray painted the orange pumpkins with rose gold and white spray paint, and carved a few to hold the flowers in,” she says of the design. We love how she mixed succulents, ornamental cabbage, and mums in front of her cheery pink door!

Rebekah carried the fall vibes inside with a simple, chic floral display. “I have a mad crush on pumpkins this season,” gushed Rebekah of the medium sized white pumpkin she used to hold a bouquet of fall flowers. To recreate this look at home, don’t fill the pumpkin itself with water, instead place a small vase that is slightly shorter than the pumpkin inside the hollowed-out shell.

Mable Cheung (@withmable), an acupuncturist and design enthusiast, gave her clean-lined living room a small but impactful dose of fall styling with a pile of mini white pumpkins placed next to a vase of greenery. The rattan tray and gold-tinted candle are subtle autumnal elements that reinforce the fall feeling.

You don’t need seasonal napkins or plates to set a beautiful fall table. Fairhome Interiors, a design studio and retail destination in Burlington, Ontario shows how classic blue and white table linens and dishes can be the foundation for a Thanksgiving table. Paired with dried foliage and white pumpkins elevated on small wooden pedestals, the tablescape is a sophisticated but decidedly seasonal.

With pumpkins, chrysanthemums, and ornamental cabbage, this front stoop styling by Melissa of @thehouseandthehostess checks all the fall decor boxes. However, she gives them a fresh, modern spin by pairing them with a Rugby Stripe outdoor rug in the Platinum colorway layered with a script font doormat. Mixing in white and green pumpkins and leaning more into the leafy greens than the colorful mums adds up to a fresh take on classic fall decor.

April, the mom and influencer behind the @apriljoy_ful Instagram account, decorates her family’s home for all the seasons, but she always sticks to her bright and white modern style. In this warm, but minimal stairwell vignette, our black and white striped Birmingham runner creates a strong graphic background for a smattering of heirloom pumpkins.

When it comes to fall decorating, Liz Roth of @DesertDecor does not stray from her preferred farmhouse style. The ticking stripes (including our Jute Ticking Indigo rug), grain sack fabrics, and painted antique wood are the perfect modern country backdrop for quiet fall touches: Dried pampas grass displayed in an oversize amber jug and a wooden bowl full of mini white pumpkins.

Because she has a large front stoop, Mia Belotti, the owner/designer behind Maison Warehouse in Sterling, Virginia, could go big with her seasonal decor. A stack of hay bales and dried corn stalks set the stage for the pumpkin party. Our Tattersall rug adds a welcome pattern and graphic punch to the natural elements.

Marissa Mills (@marissamillshome) opted for a Halloween-inspired palette for her stoop last fall, but with nary a bat or ghost in sight. The layered doormat and Tattersall outdoor rug define the space and ground her arrangement. She also proves that fresh and fake pumpkins are happy companions.
