When thinking of traditional autumn colors, one usually thinks of red, orange, copper, bronze and yellow.  While pretty, sometimes you might just want to change things up a bit.  This fall, I craved something new and was on the hunt for a new source of inspiration.  It didn’t take long because on my next visit to Hobby Lobby I found my inspiration.  A beautiful pink and cream fall wreath was in the front showcase.  It said cozy, feminine, country, delicate and interesting all at the same time and I was thrilled because it was in my favorite color, blush pink.  I knew it would look beautiful on any of our doors to our home, or in my kitchen or dining room, but the perfect spot for it would be the door to my greenhouse.  That was all that was needed to steer me away from the usual fall color scheme to PINK FALL DECOR!

Before, I jump into all the beautiful ways to decorate with pink fall decor, I should mention that it is time for another instalment of The Designing Women Tell All.  Each month myself and two other interior designers get together to share our knowledge and experience with regard to an interior or exterior design topic.  This month we are covering fall decor.  At the end of this post, I will share links and info on Kristy and Sheri’s posts.  Make sure to check them out because you will love all that they share.

​Pink fall decor – Let’s start in the greenhouse

Look how beautiful the pink fall wreath looks on the door to my greenhouse!  I knew it would be perfect!

Flanked with pink mums in concrete urns and more mums in old farmhouse pails, a few strands of pink wheat poking out of the antique mailbox and my old garden bike, it was picture perfect and all I had hoped it would be.

Because I can never just be happy with the first thing I try, I changed it up a bit and put blush pink roses in my vintage mailbox and I thought that looked even prettier.

Inside, I made it all cozy with a few of my favorite things such as my mother-in-law’s wicker settee that I covered with the sweetest pink and white vintage style quilt.  On the floor, is also my mother-in-law’s round carpet that we inherited.  Pink mums on either side bring a pop of color along with other pink decor such as the pink throw pillow on my wicker chair.

Have you noticed the curtains?  I made these by first pressing some beautiful pink stocks from my garden and adhering them to the sheer curtains.  Don’t they look pretty?

I think they actually look like they are embroidered.  I will be sharing all the details on how I made them next week, when I share a whole series on pressed flowers.

A few plush pumpkins, a white sweater pumpkin and a real pink heirloom pumpkin complete the look.  Mixing the pink colors with neutral colors gives it a lovely vintage feel of well loved pieces being mixed together.

While this is set up in my greenhouse, you could use all of these ideas to decorate your living room, family room, sitting room or even bedroom.

I used to think that Christmas was the coziest time of the year but when I see how pretty this turned out, I am beginning to think fall is!

Next up, let’s check out my dining room

My dining room is always one of my favorite spots to decorate. This new pink fall decor made it so easy.

First – the dining table.  I started with a very faded blush pink lace table cloth, layered with a soft creamy white runner.

The centerpiece begins with an pink heirloom pumpkin in the middle with the pink wheat spreading out on either side. Gold candleholders, white velvet pumpkins, pink depression glass pieces and sprigs of dried hydrangea finish the look.

The table setting layers starts with a rose gold charger, a white china plate on top and finally my grandmother’s vintage pink rose china plate on the very top.  Rose gold cutlery, a white linen napkin with a gold “Thankful” napkin ring finish off the setting.

On the china cabinet, I started with a green glass jug filled with faux white and rose autumn leaves.  In the center, is my favorite gold mirror with three bouquets of blush roses in front capturing the reflection.

Off to the right, is a large gold bowl with a candleholder inside. The base is filled with dried hydrangea and faux white pumpkins.

It is fun to create decorative vignettes throughout a room to keep the theme going. So make little groupings of your favorite pieces and find unique places to put them.

Did you notice that the table decor isn’t too fussy or overdone, yet it still looks amazing?  

Simple ways like what I have shown here can make your life easier when it comes to decorating. When it comes to setting a table, less often is more!

Next, let’s head out to our outdoor dining area 

Once again, the pink mums take centerstage with this beautiful fall tablescape.  Mums are an affordable way to bring fall inspiration to your home.

Placing the mums in the rattan baskets takes them up a notch. It makes them look so much better than just leaving them in their pots.  A white basket would have also been nice.

The pink mums look so beautiful against the navy table runner in the background.  Speaking of navy, it is the perfect complement to a pink fall color palette.  Look how lovely this navy velvet pumpkin looks nestled in pink dried hydrangea.

Lastly, come look at our sweet back entry

Perhaps you are getting sick of seeing so many pink mums? Look how lovely they are next to the crisp white gates and the lumpy pink pumpkin. That is not a faux pumpkin but such a nice change to the colorful pumpkins we usually see everywhere.  I loved seeing the pink undertones on this pumpkin.

Could pink be your new fall color inspiration?

Are you a long time fan of traditional fall colors or could this blush pink color scheme become a new favorite?  

As you have seen, it really is simple.  It could be as minimal as just adding pink pumpkins in one area of your home such as your front door.  

It is a good to experiment with different colors because you never know what might truly appeal to your heart.  We often go with the flow just doing what is expected but I encourage you to change things up and experiment. I bet you will enjoy yourself and delight your family and friends!

Other fall color inspiration

Remember how I said that navy was great with pink?  Well look at these gorgeous navy and gold pumpkin topiaries I made.  They brought my table to a whole new level of sophistication. If you would like to learn more about this project, just click this link.

As you will see in this next project, this isn’t the first time I have worked with pink in fall.  Last year I created hydrangea inspired pink gold leaf pumpkins and I loved it.  If you would like to learn more about this project, just click here.
