With each season comes the new atmosphere and color palette that can help you transform and refresh the decor that already became too familiar. Bright shades of fall are rich and vibrant and never fail to captivate. In a modern home, fall decor may take a slightly subtler turn, though. White painted pumpkins, open cotton pods, and occasional fall blooms are becoming more widespread than the red fallen leaves and orange produce. In a quest to dress your modern kitchen for the season, however, don’t forget that nature gives the gifts in droves, and you can still use the harvest for implementing your kitchen fall decor ideas.
Fall decorations can be much more explicit in a cottage-style kitchen similar to this one. But more subtle accents work just as well. It’s as if nothing really changed, but the little details like a small pumpkin or a jar of apples serve as clues and set the tone however gentle and unimposing.
Punchy Counter Accents for Fall
Don’t concentrate fall accents in one place, if you don’t want to. If you disperse the decorations around the kitchen, it will look no less beautiful and in the spirit of the season. Here is where a white kitchen becomes a perfect blank canvas for any decorations you choose. It could be fiery orange pumpkins or pine cones and corn ears. If you don’t want to overuse bright accents, however, you can pair them with neutral ones like Kelly of The Lily Pad Cottage blog did for her kitchen.
She paired the two white pumpkins with some rose hip and red apples, which turned out a fitting display for the wine rack console. Decorations come and go, but a set of seasonal tableware may serve for years and not only in a purely practical way. Take a look at how Decorchick used her pumpkin painted plates to decorate this neutral kitchen for fall.This is an ingenious solution and the one that may come in handy to those who don’t have much experience with DIY centerpieces and still life displays. Speaking of which, a still life doesn’t have to be too elaborate to work. If you would like to add a few live accents to the counter, you just need them in different sizes and colors. Do not overcrowd a composition. Start with a simple set of two or three pumpkins. This is very practical as well. The less decorations there are, the less you have to clean up or spend less time disassembling centerpieces.
