The Best Ways To Use White In Your Modern Farmhouse Fall Decor

Saffron Marigold - Updated: October 8, 2022

If ever there were a color to define a season, orange would surely be the defining color of the fall. You’ll find it in sunsets, sunflowers, changing leaves, Halloween decorations, and the omnipresence of pumpkin spice. It’s inspiring, isn’t it?

While an orange home is certainly cheerful, you might want to soften it up with white curtains, table linens, and other accents. Here are a few ideas to bookmark this fall.

Brighten your windows with white

The chill of the air mixed with the nostalgia of the season makes us want to snuggle under the covers. Orange comes in shades ranging from tangerine to blood orange and burnt orange. However you choose to use it, orange adds instant warmth to any room. Remember to lay throw blankets to the foot of your bed and toss on a few pillows that share palettes—even if they don’t share patterns!
