Do you like to decorate your porch for the different seasons? I usually do, but I always keep it somewhat simple, or I try to. Today I’m sharing my front porch decorated for Fall and I’m so happy to be joining in with a very talented group of ladies for this blog tour! Please be sure to visit everyone touring with me today, all listed at the end of my post – you’ll be amazed by everyone’s talent! If you’re coming here from Rebekah of A Blissful Nest and her gorgeous home, welcome! I’m thrilled to have you here, and I’m sure you loved everything over on Rebekah’s porch! Looking back at my porch, this past Spring, I went with a little more decor than I usually do, and added lots of layers and bold hues of blue. You can see it all here. I really loved the look and having such an inviting space. For Summer, it was minimal and clean with only my ferns, and I even removed the throw pillows from our chairs. You can have a look at it here. This time around, I’m somewhere in between, I created a neutral and cozy sitting nook and put the focus on the steps and front door with rich, autumn hues. Come and have a look and let me know what you think!

Get ready, I’m sharing a lot of pictures today. I just photographed this the other night after dinner and I tried to capture as may shots as I could, while I still had good light. I really need a lesson in editing, I’ m the worst when it comes to narrowing down my own shots!Taking a little bit of a closer look, you’ll recognize the chairs are from our back patio. We just recently did an entire makeover in our backyard this Summer, and if you haven’t seen it before, you really should (click here) – we’re still completely in love with that space! I decided to ‘borrow’ the chairs to create a more welcoming feeling out here. I absolutely love these wingback style chairs, and I think I may need to get myself another set of them come next Spring.
I kept the rest of the porch so simple, I did’t even use planters for the mums (I know what you’re thinking!). These are just the simple containers I bought them in, and although some people may cringe at that thought, it really doesn’t bother me at all. The plants are so full, you hardly see them, and the black coordinates with my porch.Now, the real reason is that I didn’t have time to look for something to put them in! I had a deadline for this post, and well, there you have it ;) I’m not perfect, what can I say?!I wanted the color focus on the steps to play off of my new wreath, which was a serious score at t HomeSense.
I just love the rich colors, fullness, depth and layers of this wreath.It’s quite large in scale and fits the proportion of the door perfectly.The deep plums and burnt oranges paired with the gold tones are just beautiful, and while I normally stick with more neutral tones, I just fell in love with this.
I replaced my ferns from Spring and Summer with my some of my favorite red ornamental grass. Since these were still quite small from the nursery, I clustered three together in each planter for fullness. I think I could have used four, for an even fuller look. I used a different type of grass last year (you can see it here), and I much prefer the deep burgundy of these.I usually keep my colors to a minimum when it comes to florals and plants, but this Fall I felt like going for a little more pop than usual and as I mentioned, the wreath was my jumping off point for creating the focus.
I’m still waiting for the mums to fully bloom and I can’t wait to see how saturated the colors will look once they do. I told you I was sharing a lot of shots ;)
On the left of the porch is our seating nook where we often have our morning coffee, or sit for a quiet evening in the Summer.
I clipped some of my hydrangeas from the garden – and they’ve turned the prettiest shade of green. Can you believe how full they are?
I love this view where you can get a glimpse of all of the colors working together.We see many passersby from this view – we have nature and horse trails right next to our home, and it’s a real treat when horses come down the street!
It’s really simple to create a look like this, and it doesn’t have to cost a lot either. I used lanterns from the patio to also tie this look together.The most important part for me was to create a welcoming front porch that speaks to the season through color and texture.
