Fall has to be the best season of the year for decorating. The autumn palette offers an array of spectacular colors…. oranges, purples, yellows, browns, rusts and deep greens. You can incorporate these colors in outdoor wreaths, door mats, rugs, cushions and other accessories to create a welcoming front porch and first impression.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind.
- Add Natural Elements: Branches, corn husks, berries, pumpkins, gourds etc. can enhance overall appeal. Wrap porch columns with corn stalks, raffia or autumn colored ribbons.
- Add Texture: Almost anything with depth will work, from old tools to baskets, wheelbarrows, rakes – anything that you might have in your home or garage that can be repurposed to create a focal point.
- Add whimsy: Nothing says autumn quite like a front door wreath. Although you can choose a colorful wreath adorned with fall leaves and berries, you might want to consider taking a more whimsical approach such as a friendly witch on a broom wreath, a scarecrow or ghost wreath. Let your imagination run wild.
