Color of the Month: Decorating with Pumpkin

We’ve covered orange and red-orange in honor of fall. In accordance with the current season, we’re celebrating their quieter, subtler cousin: pumpkin.

Pumpkin is a soothing shade of orange that beautifully blends the vibrancy of orange with a calmer vibe. It’s the perfect cheery shade for around the house, a bold color that’s not overly “in-your-face.” These gorgeous gourds are not just for jack-o-lanterns – enjoy the toned-down version of the lively hue all year round.

Pumpkin is a great choice for kitchens and dining rooms. Studies have shown that warm colors increase appetite and heighten the sense of taste.

But if you embrace the color, go a little brighter and surround yourself – quite literally – with pumpkin!
Pumpkin perks up bathrooms and bedrooms in need of brightness without being overly stimulating:
Use pumpkin for a muted burst of color in living areas of all styles:
And use it to thrill the kids – in the form of both color and shape:
