Fall Decor: Paint it Black

Oct 5th 2022

Browse through any home decor website, Pinterest page or Instagram post and it’s easy to see that the color black figures prominently. You’ll find it in everything from furnishings to wall colors to decorating accents.

Decorators love black for its richness and versatility. Black can be bold, creating drama in a modern decor, or invoking a comforting and homey farmhouse vibe.

Perennially popular black and white decor pops up in just about every room. Used as a neutral, black can fit into almost any style, emphasizing the fact that black is far from basic.

And when it comes to seasonal decorating, there’s a lot that a touch of black can do to punch up your fall decor. Consider these five fall decorating ideas:


plain black artificial wreath

Like that little black dress, this artificial black wreath can be dressed up in countless ways for fall decorating. Accent it with black and white buffalo plaid or houndstooth bows. Add a little shimmer with shiny black ball ornaments, softness with black tulle or texture with black twigs or feathers. Tiny pumpkins painted black and white would not be out of place, either. Later in the season, redecorate the wreath with black and white shatterproof ornaments or red and black plaid bows. Or add silver or gold accents for a stunning Christmas wreath.


black and white buffalo plaid pumpkin

As harvest decor goes, pumpkins win the prize for popularity. In keeping with the black and white theme, this tabletop pumpkin is dressed in a cozy buffalo plaid flannel. Pair it with orange pumpkins for Halloween, then transition through the holiday season with white pumpkins, red berries and greenery.


black and white rustic farmhouse harvest sign

A simple wooden accent piece with rustic style, this black and white harvest sign makes an attractive addition to a decorating tableau at your front door or fireplace. Keep the theme simple by adding other black and white accents, or pair it an exuberantly colorful fall style with bright orange pumpkins and gourds, mums, fall garland, cornstalks, twigs or berry sprays.


A black and white outdoor pillow with autumn appeal? Yes, please! Christmas Central offers a number of perfectly in-style accent pillows for your front porch or patio furniture. Our selection includes an accent pillow featuring a field full of whimsically painted black and white pumpkins, a delicate white-on-black leaf design or a fun football-themed throw pillow.


black lantern set

As cool autumn days fade early into crisp autumn nights, shed some light with stylish black lanterns. You’ll find lantern styles from contemporary to traditional to rustic, in a variety of sizes. Use one on a tabletop, stand a set by the front door or hearth, or line up several on your porch stairs. Add a flameless candle or two for a warm and cozy glow.

As you can see, black can be as fresh as a fall breeze and as playful as a puppy in a pile of leaves. Browse Christmas Central’s selection of wreathshome decor and decorative accents for more ideas to accentuate the “dark side” of your fall decorating scheme.
