It’s almost Halloween, and around my house that means costumes and décor. I know orange and black are hard to live with, and I have to admit for the past few years I’ve resisted the classic orange pumpkin and gone the white route. White pumpkins, greenish grey pumpkins were my choice, not an orange guy in sight. But living in a city with lots of grey outside the orange really does pop- come to think of it, my white guys never really looked that great on the porch, I guess I was missing the classic fall colour. So this year I’m going old school, back to the orange for outside. Inside that’s another story, this is where the white and odd heirloom coloured guys can live.
Just yesterday I was out antiquing with one of my fellow Found collaborators and we happened upon this great farm with some amazing pumpkin varieties. It was hard to choose, but some orange and Cinderellas will be outside my home this year. For inside I bought classic white and a few grey beauties.
Here are a few shots of some of the varieties that caught my eye…who knew right?
Notice the country pricing? the reason to buy a few.
The shots below were styled by my very talented friend Stacey Smithers (photography by Michael Graydon) and are the perfect example why the white varieties look so lovely indoors.
Happy Halloween everyone!
