Looks like we pushed Rachel Pereira of Shades of Blue Interiors out of her holiday decorating comfort zone with our Harvest and Halloween Style Challenge. We sent her a mystery box of Home Depot fall decorations to use on her patio. It was full of faux pumpkins, cute Halloween scarecrows, and other such fall decorating items.
Turns out Rachel is not so much of an “orange” person. So, this certainly was a challenge for her! You certainly would not guess that looking at the fabulous backyard harvest festival she put together, though. It’s orange and yellow and red, and it’s bursting with fun details. From her fall tablescape to the hay bales around the fire pit, you’re bound to see some fall decorating ideas you’d like to use in your own home.
A textured and organic “shim wall hanging” is the centerpiece of this rustic fall mantel designed by Collette Osuna of Spindle & Rye. The wall hanging is a surprisingly easy DIY project, and Collette shares her tutorial for it here on The Home Depot Blog.
The mantel and DIY project are part of our Halloween and Harvest Style Challenge. We sent Collette a mystery box of Home Depot Halloween decorations to get her started on decorating her mantel in her special rustic style.
But first, she needed to paint the tiles of her fireplace…
It’s no wonder Liz Fourez of Love Grows Wild chose a farmhouse look for her fall decor– she lives on a farm! We’ve already seen her decorations for a harvest bonfire party. Now, for our Harvest and Halloween Style Challenge, we move indoors to see her dining table’s simple and lovely fall tablescape.
She also gives us a peek at more of her vintage farmhouse decor, including a quick tutorial on how she created a cute “vintage” apple orchard sign.
The centerpiece of these front porch fall decorations is a cool DIY copper pipe table. We have the tutorial for the copper pipe table, and a look the rest of this cozy front porch all dressed up for autumn.
Designer Breanna Bertolini of Bre Purposed built the table and assembled these fall decorations for our Halloween and Harvest Style Challenge. We sent her a mystery box of Home Depot Halloween decorations challenged her to create cute and comfortable space we could share here on The Home Depot Blog.
Bre came up with a lovely palette of copper, white and green, with some orange thrown in here and there. It’s understated and attractive, and it welcomes falling leaves and cooler weather in style.
Sarah Dorsey of Sarah M. Dorsey Designs created this gorgeous chick Halloween tablescape especially for our Halloween Style Challenge series. We sent her a mystery box of Halloween decorations from The Home Depot, and Sarah did the rest.
We love how Sarah achieved such a sophisticated look using such simple materials, including sticks from her backyard.
It doesn’t take much to create a cheery fall front door– just a few items carefully placed, and color coordinated. These front door decorations adorn the home of April Hoff, who writes the design and DIY blog House by Hoff.
This is part of our Harvest and Halloween Style Challenge series here on the Home Depot Blog. We sent April a mystery box of fall and harvest decorations for her front porch, and then stood back while she did her fall decorating magic.
We love the blue, yellow and black palette of her fall front door decorations. It all started with a new coat of paint for her door.
Halloween can be spooky, cute, or as we increasingly see, glam. Shonee of Hawthorne & Main definitely went with glam when she decorated her Halloween dining room.
This is part of our ongoing Halloween Style Challenge series here on The Home Depot Blog. We sent Shonee a mystery box of Halloween decorations, and let her apply her decorating talents to creating a fab Halloween decor with the contents and a little bit of DIY skill.
She came up with a fun, colorful Halloween dining room and mantel with lots of fun, not-so-spooky details.
Who couldn’t use a little organization inspiration in their lives? We used Rust-Oleum’s Dry Erase Paint, Chalkboard Paint and Magnetic Primer to create a message board right on the wall. To make it look finished, we added picture frames around each section of the message.
This is an easy DIY project that can make it fun to keep your family’s schedules all in one place. Just follow our step-by-step tutorial.
This cute decorative serving tray is made from a repurposed old picture frame. We painted the frame with a super-matte chalked paint, which gives the tray a lovely shabby chic or vintage look. But depending on the type of frame you use and what paint finish and color you prefer, your decorative tray could match just about any decor.
Just follow our step-by-step instructions to repurpose your own frame to make a decorative serving tray.
A kitchen command center can be a big help in keeping a busy family organized. It’s a place to leave family notes, post schedules and hang keys. This DIY kitchen command center features just about everything you’d want– a magnetic chalkboard, a strip of cork board for pinning items, hooks for keys, and a rack for holding papers and folders. Plus, it looks great with its doors decorated with stained wood planks.
