Cozy Fall Porch
The weather is slowly changing here in St. Louis, and I couldn’t be more excited about it! I have never been a huge fan of summer, probably because I’d much rather be cold than hot. Not to mention, I have a head full of thick curly hair, so that midwest humidity and I don’t get along very well! I love everything there is to love about fall. The food, the trees, the clothes, the crisp cool air and the coziness of it all. It makes me very happy. So I figured with decorating for my favorite time of the year, I’d start on the front porch!
My sweet friend Taryn from Taryn Whiteaker, gathered up some of my favorite bloggers to share how we decorate our fall porches for you! My fall colors this year are dark and a little moody, and I am actually loving it. You will see a lot of burgundy coming up in my fall home tour soon, and it’s a nice change from the traditional orange that is used in this season.
I am obsessed with the idea of layering your front door mat on a patterned rug. It gives the space much more texture and draws your eye to it immediately. And you really can’t go wrong with adding a little black and white buffalo check!
White pumpkins are my thing this year. Last year I used a lot of green and orange heirloom pumpkins, but this year its all about white!
I used a bunch of old galvanized metal buckets for my mums. I am loving the mix of burgundy and metal, with added buffalo check. It’s not something I have done in the past but all of those elements together go so well!
I hope you enjoyed my fall decorated front porch, I think Ill be spending a lot of time out here this season!
Be sure to check out all of the other super talented ladies and their beautiful fall porches!
I bet you will get a ton of inspiration to decorate yours for fall now too! Enjoy!
