"A designer knows when he has reached perfection not when there is nothing left to add but when there is nothing left to take away."

I recently showcased our fall porch and had several questions regarding what pumpkins I used, how I created the wreath, and what I used to attach the corn shocks to the columns. I thought I would share some tips today on how to create a beautiful fall porch using natural and neutral elements.

Tip 1: Mix real, faux, and painted pumpkins/gourds together.

I believe that the real thing always looks best. However, sometimes it's just not practical to use all real pumpkins. Faux pumpkins can look just as great as the real thing when painted.

Just because a pumpkin comes in orange doesn't mean it has to stay that way! And this brings us to our next tip...

Tip 2: Paint your pumpkins with latex or chalk paint.
