Fall is here and it’s not too late to decorate for the season! If you haven’t had the motivation or don’t know what to do, let me give you some inspiration.
Recently I worked on a fun project for a client who was looking for a simple fall front porch with a slight modern twist. She loves the black and white modern styles right now so we knew it was time to update her front porch with a new mat plus all the other fall goodies.
Her porch is fairly large, but we kept this space to a minimum. I tried to focus on styling around the front door so that we didn’t have to buy a lot of pumpkins and things to spread out around the porch. I mainly concentrated on filling the area with the smallest of details to the largest of finds.
I was important to me to bring in the best mix of orange, white, and green blackish pumpkins of various sizes to create visual interest and depth. With the different sizes, it made it easy to stack and layer the pumpkins.
To build up the display, I brought in a hay bale because it makes for a great outdoor decoration for fall. You can use them on a front porch, on your lawn, or in a flower bed depending on where it makes sense for you to set up a fall display. They provide for a great resting place for baskets, mums, green plants, pumpkins, or whatever you love. Not to mention they have a nice color and texture.
Baskets are also excellent to use for styling and containing items. Check out how I used these with mums and green plants and those cute little pumpkins.
Now if you haven’t already seen all over Pinterest, layering rugs is a thing now. It’s such an adorable look! Using a plaid rug as a door mat then adding a bit of character with a rug that has a unique saying or graphic on it just adds the right amount of fun and style! As you can see here, this one gives me all the warm fuzzies.
Decorating for the fall should be fun and it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. Just think smart, look around, and get creative. Many of these ideas you can do all on your own such as the graphic door mat.
