I’m so excited to be here today as part of the Fall Ideas Tour – 25 bloggers sharing new ideas for your Fall mantels, tablescapes, wreaths, printables and porches. And, I’m especially excited because I got to decorate an outdoor space for this tour. Today is porch day and I’m sharing my welcoming Fall front porch.
For me, Fall outshines all the other seasons. Even though the temps are cooler outdoors, the colors displayed in nature are so warm! And, of course, we try to bring that warmth into our fall homes. And, why not begin by making your entryway or porch warm and welcoming! Don’t let that fact that you don’t have the porch of your dreams hold you back from making what you DO have welcoming for your family and friends. My front porch isn’t anything special. To be completely honest, I don’t like it.
It’s long and narrow and has always been a challenge for me to decorate. But, the more I work with the space, the more I do get new ideas to maybe make this space look better and be the welcoming front porch that I want it to be. The focal point of your front porch or entry is the front door. A few years ago I painted my front door Benjamin Moore Mill Springs Blue and I love the warm blue green shade.
When you decorate your front porch, you definitely need to use colors that are complimentary to your front door. Bright orange looks amazing with my front door color, but this year I decided to bring down the tone of the orange with a variety of pale orange pumpkins! I couldn’t believe my luck when I found these pale beauties!
And, the color of this Mum is called Amber – a warm golden shade.
You may recognize the chicken crate! Yes, I just brought it out to the porch and propped it on its side. I thought it was a nice rustic accent to balance out the straw bale on the other side of the front door. And, isn’t it fun that the color in the plaid picnic blanket is the perfect match to my door!
And, isn’t the color of that blue Hubbard Squash amazing!
And, wouldn’t it be so adorable if this cat’s name was “Pumpkin” ? Nope, not pumpkin! His name is Scout and he’s the sweetest and coolest cat in the neighborhood!
