A touch of rusty orange combined with dark rich neutrals and metallics from the front door are going to take you by an awe, and those corn stalks planted in huge pots on both the corners are all about the fall season. White pumpkins surround the cornstalk not only inside the pots, but also at the bottom, having a few of them coated in a golden glittery paint drip pattern find special spots around the decor.
The much needed vibrancy comes into play with a red planter loaded with beautiful mums. To make everything glow in the dark, add a few wooden lanterns with candles installed inside to the arrangement. For giving a vivid installation to the pumpkins, you can use small stools or wooden log discs for rustic bases to the veggies, just like showcased in the below guide by Design Dining and Diapers, working neutrals at their best.
