Front Porch Panache
Adding Welcome Home Decor
What better way to embrace autumn and all of its wonderful seasonal treasures of pumpkin spice and cool nights than with a beautifully decorated front porch?
And why not? A home’s front door should always make a good first impression on guests and visitors. The good news is there are plenty of design options that can add a fresh look to the front of your home with just a little effort and creativity.
Since fall is a season beloved for its colors, warm hues like deep orange, burgundy and a spray of gold are must-haves for your color palette. Hearty wreaths featuring autumn leaves, rustic pine cones or a sprig of sunflowers make a stunning statement on a front door. An arrangement of pumpkins of different shades and sizes, miniature bales of hay and a scarecrow or two adds a fun flair to your front porch. Outdoor furniture can be spruced up with cushy, autumn-themed pillows and throws. And a stylish welcome mat is sure to invite the warmth of friends and family into your home.
Finally, don’t forget about light. Consider displaying lanterns of varying heights with LED-lighted candles for a look of warmth. Give depth and dimension to a potted plant with a battery-operated up light or add a string of lights along your front porch rail for some seasonal sparkle.
Have some fun and enjoy adding a little panache to your front porch decor!
