Fall Front Porch + Tips To Transition Your Porch Into The New Season

Design — September 22, 2021

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.

This post is sponsored by Overland Sheepskin Co. All content and opinions are always our own. Thank you for allowing us to share the brands we love to support.

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!

If you don’t want to DIY one, try looking here and here for our favorite fall wreaths. Stay tuned for a wreath and dried botanical roundup coming soon!

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? Try here, here, and here.
