My autumn style tends to be soft and subtle- one that mixes and mingles with my everyday color palette.
And something I hear often is how do you do ‘autumn’ without oranges, red, and bold colors blazing through the house? Today I am sharing a few tips for just that- and a giveaway for something neutral autumn for you.
Soft and simple, subtle, natural… not always the first words that come to mind with autumn. While I do love bold and beautiful- I tend to keep the autumn decor in the house a more muted look. I like seasonal decor that meshes with my everyday look and doesn’t overwhelm the house.
But how to do that?
#1. Keep it natural
Probably the easiest way to keep it simple and neutral – stick with the softer elements that nature provides.
Think grasses, wheat, white and muted pumpkins, dried hydrangeas and natural touches like acorns.
Not all of autumn is bold oranges.
#2. Go for the gold
We have trees that turn the most lovely golden color before dropping their leaves in autumn. And yellows and golds are perfect to use for autumn decor. I love them as a backdrop and also as an accent.
Mix gold with grasses, leaves and white pumpkins for a softer look that will mingle with your everyday look and that still says autumn. Gold is a perfect accent for white decor as well as the more moody rooms- it is a favorite.
#3. Layers of pumpkins on greens
Whether you go with faux or real- stacking those pumpkins on a bed of greens is a simple easy way to dress up your porch or coffee table.
Use fresh or dried greens – I often save the eucalyptus greens that dry out during the summer and use those in pots on the front patio- and also as a ‘bed’ for pumpkins in a crate.
#4. Bring in some cabbages
White, green, and those lovely brown heirloom pumpkins look perfect mixed with cabbages – I pick up several gallon sized ornamental cabbages at the farmers market and simply tuck them in.
#5. Grapevine pumpkins
No pumpkins in store yet? No problem- grab some of those grapevine pumpkins to create a mantel or styling.
This wreath has alllll those elements that I just talked about and that I love- gorgeous muted colors, natural grasses, golds and white pumpkins.
And there is still time to enter to win one of these!

Happy weekend decorating all.
