Fall brings images of bright orange pumpkins, scarecrows with patchwork quilting and multi-colored leaves in a spray across the yard. But before you start placing orange pumpkins on your front porch, let’s think how you can relish the season while staying true to a color palette that is more in keeping with your modern outdoor style.

Choose blue and gray pumpkins instead of traditional orange and use them as your muse. Introduce some grays, blues, browns or a splash of marsala in your patio décor pieces.  The Divine Footstools are perfect to pop a color around the backyard, throw some cozy blankets, pop a bottle or two of red wine.

Autumn perfection!

As the days get shorter, the nights get longer nothing is more comforting than a fire pit. Add pillows, blankets and throws to your patio furniture, some holiday accessories that set the mood and enjoy that cozy fire pit on a chilly Autumn evening. Make sure you pick a fire pit with plenty high BTU burner, to keep you toasty warm when the temperature drops, so you can just kick back and admire he night.

Modern Outdoor Fire Pit

One of the simplest ways to decorate your front porch for fall is to make the front door the focal point. Add a modern wreath and flank to your front door with complementing oversized planters that can display pumpkin topiaries, tall grasses or a collection of colorful foliage. Grasses, succulents, flax and cool weather annuals such as kale create color and texture that live well beyond the ever-present pansies and mums and will maintain their color and form throughout the season.
