Fall decor doesn’t need to be orange and red and brown and all those things.  Sometimes it is the texture and the style not the color that evokes all of the Fall feels.  With the advent of all of the artificial pumpkins available in different colors and the availability of more real white pumpkins, it is easier to create neutral fall decor.   

What is Neutral:

Black, white, tan, gray and various shades of browns are what we think of as neutral colors.  Metallics are often included in the neutral tones.  

Neutral Fall Decor:

Consider a string art craft like this one from Sonja and Jane from Sustain my Craft Habit created and used as the centerpiece for this neutral fall vignette.  For contrast, add acorns or pinecones like the pinecone wreath featured here.

If you don’t want to use white pumpkins, you can always go with glass or wooden ones in grays or metallic colors.  Ash from @my.california.ranch.home on Instagram gave her neutral vignette a fall feel by adding pumpkins.  Galvanized pail with Farm Fresh Pumpkins lettering on it filled with white pumpkins and fall leaves with acorns and tiny lights
