Who’s ready for a pumpkin spice latte on your front porch watching the leaves turn color? We know we are! Fall is right around the corner and it is time to think about giving your front porch a festive makeover. From colorful wreaths, festive decor and fall flowers, Budget Blinds has a few design ideas that will make your front porch a welcoming focal point this season.
Throw Pillows and Blankets
Immediately add warmth and comfort to your space with oversized throw pillows and blankets on a swing, bench or chair. Plaid is our favorite pattern this fall and pairs well with other autumn colors. Pillows are a great way to make a porch feel more like a real room, extending the square footage of your home. We recommend quick-drying polyester fillings as well as fabrics that are fade and water-resistant. You can swing seamlessly into the most wonderful time of year with a snuggly quilt and that latte in hand to start fall off on the right foot!
Summer days are dwindling and so is tending to your garden. This fall, try decorating with colorful mums and gourds! They are the perfect floral for fall. Use rustic buckets or crocks stuffed with these fun flowers to create the perfect front porch ambiance. Line your entryway with gourds, pinecones and pumpkins to really set it off. Another perfect seasonal choice is potted boxwoods. They are great all-season long and will last as the weather changes.
Colorful Outdoor Rug
If your front porch has the space you may want to consider a seasonal area rug with your doormat on top. Outdoor area rugs come in a wide variety of styles to choose from, including geometric, solids, stripes, traditional, contemporary and floral. Add the beauty of autumn to your home with a simple area rug that will bring the front porch decor together.
Welcome the fall season with a beautiful wreath on your front door. It’s an easy way to make a statement. You can add pumpkins, corn husks, nuts, flowers, herbs or burlap—the possibilities are endless. Make a wreath highlighting just one fall theme or material, or make one that includes all of them! We love this asymmetrical twig wreath that keeps a pop of color to one side, making it a good balance of natural and bright.
