My Front Porch, 3 Ways For Fall

Friends, one of my favorite features of our home is our front porch.  I love the portico and the original wood details around the door, I love the detail on the railings, and of course, the unique paint color I mixed up. I especially love decorating it seasonally. Whether you have a cozy stoop, a sprawling front porch, or something in between, your porch is the perfect opportunity to be creative and set the first impression of your home.

Today I’m sharing my front porch, decked out for fall 3 different ways! The items I’m using were gifted to me by Ballard Designs, but this post is not sponsored.

For the first look, I flanked the door with these stunning planters filled with seasonal plants, like ornamental grasses, ferns that have survived since spring, and my favorite sedum stonecrop that I talked about in my last post, which complements my door color.fall front porch

I added a fun patterned doormat.

and a faux eucalyptus wreath to complete the look.

For the second look, I went asymmetrical with a large and small planter on one side . . .

and sleek lanterns on the other. I also incorporated a few of the terracotta pumpkins I shared in my fall favorites post.

Rather than using a traditional wreath, I used a hanging basket, different from one I’ve used over the past couple of years, and then I kept it elegant with a scrollwork doormat.

For the third and final look, I aimed for a neutral vibe.

Lastly, I added a striped indoor/outdoor rug to add interest and complete the space.

I love all of the looks so much, and honestly, haven’t settled on a final look yet.  Which look do you like best?  Or would you mix and match some of the looks?

    Love #2! So organic and love how the plant colors match and contrast with the house & door.
