With a few new accessories, a diy, some herbs, white mums and white pumpkins, I’m ready for Fall. I’m on a black and white kick. It was grey for so long, and black and white is not a far departure from that colorless palette, but I believe it’s classic and timeless. With this very neutral palette, the plants are in the spotlight and your eye focuses more on the shapes, patterns and textures.
I’ve got a lot of pictures, so I’ll let them do most of the talking. But, I’ll tell you quickly about my two favorite new elements. I added a herb wall to the left of the front door. Using ceramic wall planters hung in a square, the plants created a clean and unique focal point for our porch. The second thing I did was paint a “WELCOME” sign on the first step (found the idea here). I cut a simple stencil out with my Cricut Explore on some vinyl (but, this could be done with an x-acto knife as well) and then spray painted the letters bright white. I love these blocky letters, so just like my YOU + ME poster, I left the centers of the letter out.
I added a few white pumpkins and the Southwest Pumpkins I made last year, and I’m ready for Fall. It doesn’t take much, I have to remind myself often that LESS IS MORE!
