5 Ideas For Using White In Fall Decor

 Beyond Pumpkin and Orange.

Hey friends! Are you tired of traditional fall colors? Do you feel like deep shades of green and pumpkin are just not right for your autumn home decor? Today I thought it would be fun to consider using neutrals and naturals around your fall house, with an emphasis on white. 

Farmhouse is probably one of the most popular decorating trends currently, and that design template seems to rely almost solely on white. I truly appreciate a room skillfully dressed in white slipcovers, throws, baskets, and the likes, but that is not our house. But I do like to use a modest number of white accents, and this fall, in particular, I've chosen neutrals combined with whites rather than an over-use of the deeper tones.

I have put together a list of five ideas for you to think about. And I do want to mention here that many of the accessories I'm showcasing are thrifted. I don't want you to feel discouraged if you don't have a large decorating budget. Some of my favorite things are from second-hand stores.

Let's get started~

1. Try using white dishes on your autumn table. I know that we tend to think of white tablescapes as a summer thing. But when white plates are paired with off-white, beige and other neutral accessories, the white does not appear as glaring and out of place. I really like the way the gold-rimmed dessert plates, and the copper mugs tone down the pure white.

  2. Choose a white container and fill it with something natural, such as this dried ornamental grass. The reddish-brown really warms up the tablescape and again, softens the brilliance of the white container.  



3. White ceramic pieces or English ironstone is classic. Here is another favorite thrift find. I love these artichokes! They feel very fall even though they are white. Eye-catching white ceramics can add a lot of emphasis to your decor.

4. Try creating a white-on-white vignette. These pumpkins were buy-one, get-two-free at JoAnn Fabrics last year. I think the fleece is cozy and I like the stems especially. They look very real.

5. Throughout the year, be on the lookout for neutrals and whites that you can use in your fall decor. Don't wait until September to start looking.

Sometimes you might even happen upon something inside that would look nice on the porch. 

I hope you find my suggestions helpful, and that your home is feeling happy and cozy. We have had plenty of sunshine the last few days, and cool nights~ perfect fall weather.  Thank you for stopping by today. Please come back soon!


Happy Fall!
