Holiday Decor: The Modern Pumpkin

The pumpkin is a classic representation of fall and has turned into a well recognized symbol for the holiday Halloween. Here you will see ideas and inspiration of how to transform the classic pumpkin into sleek modern designs and bring your holiday spirit a little creativity.

White gourds are some of my favorite. The elegance of their natural beauty is uncanny. Used alone you  can transform your staircase, front entrance or any kitchen table instantaneously. Adding a splash of color or interesting Tim Burton style face can elevate them to a whole new level of fun.

Instead of the traditional carving of the pumpkin, try painting them! Here are some Tim Burton inspired painted "scary" faces. 

Elegantly trimmed gourds and pumpkins.

Hand painted and stenciled "spooky" designs.

Add an elegant baroque silhouette for the modernist femme.

Staircase lined pumpkin path.

For all those moving during the fall season. Here's a great spin on a home address sign. Stenciling is easy and with the stark contrast of black on metallic, your home will be sure to stand out.
