Welcoming the start of the fall season today, our favorite time of the year! This is our first year sharing our fall front porch– we usually share our back entry styled which you can see here, and here. Today, we are sharing five simple tips to help you transition your porch from summer to fall.

Tip 01 : foliage
Replace your planters with fall-inspired plants. Instead of Mums or Crotons, try using something with darker foliage like Chinese Fringe, Midnight Magic or Black Diamond Crape Myrtles, or a Maple Tree.
Tip 02 : texture
The fall and winter seasons are all about incorporating texture like beautiful wool blankets, layering with fur pelts, stacks of firewood, or a natural wreath…
We love keeping these wool blankets by the front door that we can grab easily when we need an added layer of warmth.
Or layer this wool blanket over your furniture to instantly transition the feel of summer to fall…
Tip 03 : dried elements
Try incorporating dried botanicals with seasonal tones, like these that we used on our coffee table…
or, try and create your own wreath with foraged items from the outdoors!
Tip 04 : layering
Layering is something I talk about often when it comes to styling a space- from layering with pillows, blankets, decor… for this look, we layered our seating with these small Skeepskin pelts (taupe color) that elevated our outdoor space and made it feel cozy for these cooler months ahead!
I can’t wait to use these in our living and dining rooms too- they are the perfect layering piece to have on hand all year round!
Tip 05 : keep it practical
Whether it’s a basket of leaves or a stack of firewood, keep things practical with what makes sense for you and your family. With all of the fallen leaves in our yard this time of year, we had our boys go rake and pick the fallen leaves to place in a basket by our front door. Looking for a vintage basket like ours?
