Oh my gourd, Becky. It’s pumpkin season, and here at The Everymom, we’re screaming it from the rooftops. The leaves are changing colors, the morning air is cool and crisp, your local Trader Joe’s is flooded with seasonal items, and pumpkin spice lattes have made our year-round coffee order a thing of the past.

With cooler temperatures and darker evenings come a shift in style trends, and today, we’re here to explore how pumpkin-centered decor can elevate your fall interior—*freaky* fast.

 

1. As a Centerpiece

As much as we love enjoying pumpkin-inspired dishes at our dining tables, fall presents the seasonal opportunity to bring the moneymaker of the gourd family to the table in a different way. Pumpkins make for a great centerpiece. Whether they’re thoughtfully seated on a burlap runner, adjacent to a warm candle, or placed snugly in a large bowl, they’re sure to bring your fall-inspired dining decor to the next level.

2. Keep It Neutral

Adding pumpkins to your home doesn’t mean that you have to abandon an already neutral design style. Adding muted-colored fall decor is a wonderful way to declare your love for autumn and to adopt a cozy, clean vibe while staying true to your home’s aesthetic.

If your decor is already fairly neutral, adding a quirky-colored pumpkin can be a great way to add color to any space. Nothing screams “October” quite like an eye-catching, lively jack-o’-lantern. You can invest in pre-colored pumpkins or paint your own—a fun DIY project to take on with the kiddos!

Steer away from your basic ceramic pumpkin decor and add some texture to any fall-inspired arrangement with a nontraditional doppelgänger.

I love this white-on-black contrast and the idea of bringing elegance to a spooky classic.

They’re affordable, easy to store away when the season ends, and undeniably cute.
