Steal This Look! - Decorating With Neutral Fall Colours  

The farmhouse look is in, and so are neutrals! This doesn't just apply to furnishings and paint colours, but seasonal decorations as well. Pinterest is rife with ideas for decorating in neutral, pale colours this autumn instead of the traditional reds, yellows, and oranges. Below are some ideas from pinterest for autumn decorating in a neutral palette, followed by some items that we sell here at Holland Park to help get your inspiration flowing and your house decorated in time for autumn festivities!


The Front Porch

The front porch is one of the most popular places to decorate when autumn arrives - and those decorations aren't limited to spooky Halloween decorations. The front porch is where you welcome guests (and in this case, fall) into your home, and it helps set the flow for your personal space. Adding a festive wreath, some pumpkins or corn stalks, fall flowers in soft, neutral colours will do wonders for your first impressions.

The Entranceway

The first impression continues when you journey inside. Continue the theme of a soothing transition of seasons with some light coloured blankets, soft pillows, decorative branches and pinecones, and other harvest-themed items to help your guests relax and feel at home.

The Dining Room

If you love hosting Thanksgiving dinner, consider creating a different centrepiece. Using white flowers, small pale pumpkins and gourds, and a bright splash of green or moses, you can create a stunning centrepiece that is sure to have your guests oohing and ahhing!

The Living Room

For many people, the living room is the heart of the home - and why wouldn't you want your heart looking clean and refined? Adding neutral items like white candlesticks, greenery, woven baskets, and metal or wood accents will really make this space bright, open, and welcoming while still being festive.

The Mantelpiece

Thought the mantlepiece was just for stockings and Christmas decorations? Think again! A fireplace draws the eye and can be the focal point of a room, so there's no reason to ignore it when you're getting ready for fall. Add in a large, fancy-looking clock, mour gours, pumpking items, white ceramics and some bunting, and your house is set for fall festivities!
