Autumn Decor: Three Looks for Your Front Porch

Little compares to stepping onto your front porch on a crisp Colorado morning, steaming coffee in hand. With the snow falling, and the holidays just around the corner, it’s time to design an awe-inspiring entryway that you’ll be proud to survey each morning this season. To that end, we’ve rounded up three fresh looks that can be tailored to your style. Read on to craft the display that’s right for your home.

Subtle

For those who favor an autumnal display without going overboard, create a warm entryway with decorations inspired by tradition. Play with pumpkins of different shapes, sizes, and colors, and scatter them along your stairs or walkway. For an extra pop of color, add potted flowers that can withstand a bit of crisp fall air — like chrysanthemums. They’re perfect for bringing your look to life and will likely survive through late November. Strategically place a few festive lanterns alongside your pumpkins to illuminate your space with a soft, warm glow. This year, save electricity by opting for battery-operated LED candles that can be remotely controlled and won’t cause a fire if accidentally tipped over.

Sophisticated

Clean and simple is the way to go when designing an entrance that sings with sophistication. Opt for unexpected color palettes like monochromatic white flowers and pumpkins to set your home apart. If you find it challenging to track down white pumpkins, spray paint is a quick solution — and will deter the squirrels from nibbling on them for lunch. Continue your upscale take on autumn decor by combining fresh flowers with dried or synthetic foliage such as corn husks or oversized wheat bundles. To end up with a trendy look that you’ll be able to enjoy into early winter, try incorporating twinkling string lights and burlap ribbons to soften the look of your display. Protip: Finish things off with a fun DIY project that the whole family can enjoy by crafting your own wreath.

Spectacular

If you’re looking to make a statement, consider using larger-than-life props. Friendly stuffed scarecrows and towering corn stalks brighten your home’s exterior and draw attention to your love of fall. Create a fantastic arrangement of seasonal foliage, complete with colorful lights, and scattered leaves you collect along your neighborhood nature walks.

Ready for a more permanent change that will take your home’s curb appeal to unprecedented levels? Consider changing the character of your home with these designer-approved color schemes. By painting your windows and doors, you can create a custom and cohesive theme that plays off your seasonal decorations to make others slow down and take notice. If you find a little more wear and tear than you’d like on those weathered windows and doors, remember that we’re just a click or phone call (303-472-8462) away!
