Ahhh, fall – our favorite time of year. From the incredible explosion of vibrant hues, to the brisk morning air that melds with the warmth of an Oklahoma afternoon, no other season can compare. The fact that pumpkin spice everything, football, hayrides, and foliage festivals are back doesn’t hurt either.
Celebrate the beginning of fall by transforming your entry and creating porch envy with seasonal elements. Rustic leaves, pumpkins, mums, gourds, pinecones, dried corn, and tree branches are just some of our favorite seasonal elements. Here are a few ideas for how you can style your home’s front entry for autumn.
#1. Welcome Wreaths
Create a welcoming entry for guests with a fall-themed wreath. Traditional favorites like pinecones, grapevines, leaves, berries, and corn husks create a gorgeous color theme with an emphasis on natural elements. If you have a large entry way, with windows bordering the door, consider hanging matching wreaths in each window.
#2. Dress Up Your Front Porch
When it comes to curb appeal, your front porch is prime real estate. This year, create an eye-catching display by strategically placing pumpkins, bales of hay, and tall corn stalks in varying sizes and shapes, on and around your front porch. Flank your front door with oversized planters or terracotta pots filled with bright colored mums
#3. Nostalgic Comfort
If there are one place rocking chairs belong it’s definitely the front porch. Just picture it: a brisk day, a cozy throw draped across your legs, casually rocking back and forth, as you enjoy the perfectness of fall surrounding you. This peaceful dream, however, cannot exist without a rocking chair.
#4. Light the Way
As the days get shorter, and the nights longer during the fall, one of the keys to enjoying your front porch is to ensure adequate lighting. Outdoor string lights, strung around your home’s pillars or porch railings (if applicable) are an easy way to add some serious ambiance.
#5. Don’t Forget Halloween
With just 27 days until Halloween, now is the perfect time to tie some Halloween themed decorations into styling your home’s front entry. From giant spiders to wicked witch legs, Pinterest provides the best ideas for decorating your home, before trick-or-treaters dressed in Superhero and Princess costumes come knocking.
