In this post: If you’re looking for ideas for introducing early fall decor into your home, consider these tips using neutral pumpkins styled in a hutch.⇒
I have this thing about being appropriate.
I like furniture where it’s expected, I dress as requested for occasions and I’m meticulous about thank you notes.
So it stands to reason I love seasonal decor and never would have pumpkins out in April.
But that doesn’t mean I don’t like a unique spin…
I’m delighted to be partnering today with LoveFeast Shop who provided these Hot Skwash pumpkins for an early fall blog hop. If you’re coming here from StoneGable, welcome! Yvonne is an amazing stylist and I know you enjoyed her post… 🙂
With fall approaching, and in line with my quest for appropriateness, I like to begin to introduce fall decor into my home in subtle ways. I never jump right to oranges and golds, instead opting for soft tones that meld comfortably with my decor.
We have a lovely secretary desk in my bedroom that I use as a vanity. The compartments are great for storing cosmetics, but the accompanying hutch is ideal for seasonal styling. With glass doors and pretty shelving, it’s one of my go-to spots for new vignettes.
Which made it the perfect spot to showcase this unique look for fall. I’m absolutely crazy for these velvet pumpkins with lush feather collars! In soft white, they work perfectly with my bedroom and are a charming way to incorporate fall into my decor.
While fall is one of my favorite seasons to decorate for, I’m not a fan of traditional autumn colors, and this soft palette is a more natural fit for my modern French style.
In addition to the feathers, Hot Skwash pumpkins come in solids, as well as embellished with Swarovski crystals. The gorgeous range of colors of the silk velvet and the handmade workmanship with natural stems are the hallmarks of these artful objects.
In styling my hutch I decided to mix the pumpkins with vintage silver, antique books and, as always, fresh flowers.
They really work with any decor style, depending on the colors you choose and objects you surround them with, but I love how they mix so beautifully with the French Country pieces in my home. Whether tucked in a delicate floral china cup or a dramatic silver footed bowl, there are unlimited ways to decorate with these delightful little homages to fall.
For me, styling shelves is about layering and an instinctual balance of size, placement and color. I try to vary the heights, number of pieces and nature of objects so there’s a melodic flow to the finished product.
I hope you’re inspired by this lovely way to introduce fall into your home. I tend to build up to more color as the season progresses, but for now I’m thrilled with my neutral pumpkin styling which feels like a most appropriate way to welcome the season!
