Chic Autumnal Decorating Ideas

One of my readers asked me to post about chic Halloween decorations.  I don’t really decorate for Halloween so I suggest visiting Martha Stewart who has an entire magazine dedicated to the holiday.  I do however enjoy decorating for autumn and I’m sure most of these ideas could be modified for Halloween.  Even though orange is my favorite color, I happen to love the look of white pumpkins.  They are perfect for creating chic autumn or Halloween decorations.  Happy October!

  • You know that autumn has truly arrived when the pumpkins come out to play. Nice post, Heather!

  • stylish autumn decoration!

  • Orange is one of my very favourite colours as well, but I also LOVE the white pumpkins- they manage to be both chic and ghoulish at the same time!
    Especially carved into Moroccan lanterns- I trust that one has GOT to be Martha. I SO want to be her when I grow up 🙂

  • Love the flowers paired with pumpkins!

  • Great post. The last one is cute.
    Nothing like Autumn in New York.

  • Oh my,
    that third image of the entry way reminds me of cappucino and tiramisu and all manner of things enticing and good. It’s a daily dose delish for sure.

    Cheers, Alcira


  • All so pretty. Thank you for sharing.

  • Beautiful post. Have a great week.

  • My favorite time of year! Autumn is looking very sophisticated-thank you!

  • Thank you for the lovely post!

    I love the white pumpkins!

  • I love the pumpkins combined with flowers! What a nice twist!



  • what a fun roundup of holiday images. love em! so excited to decorate for haloween.

  • I just love the first image…the first chic pumpkin decorating I have seen. I traditionally do not get into decorating for Halloween, we live at the end of a long driveway and not trick a treaters come our way. If i were to be home for halloween, I certainly would have been inspired by any of your fabulous images…

  • I agree that white pumpkins are such chic alternatives to orange pumpkins. Like the elegant, grown-up version of Halloween for kids!

  • Hi, it’s my first time here and I loved it! Congratulations!!!
    I’ll be in Florida in a month and I’m just looking for some nice pillows to complete my home. Could you give me some tips about where I can find them?
    Tks a lot!
