Festive Fall Decor for Your Front Porch

October 8, 2020

The start of fall brings forth a sense of nostalgia for many people. From visiting your local pumpkin patch to whipping up your favorite hearty fall recipes, this new season can encourage homeowners to make their homes feel extra cozy and inviting. Weston Dean Custom Homes knows the importance of a first impression, and that starts with your front porch. No matter what exterior style your home has, we’ve rounded up a list of fall decor ideas that will complement your outdoor spaces perfectly, add to your curb appeal and impress any visitors you have for the holidays. 

Pick your perfect theme

You design and buy a home based on specific style preferences. You fill it with furnishings that match the aesthetic you’re going for, too—and you should do the same for your fall decor. Since the items are only temporary, you can get a little more funky and playful than your typical style. We’ve rounded up what’s trending and listed them below to help spark some inspiration. 

  • Rustic and warm: Decorating with more traditional pieces in the typical fall colors creates an especially inviting atmosphere. Pick pieces in bright or burnt orange, browns, golds and tans. Incorporate as much texture as possible with burlap, corduroy and wooden accents. 
  • Sleek and spooky: If Halloween is your favorite part of fall, then make it known with your front porch decor. For a sleeker, more mature approach to spooky, focus on finding black and maroon pieces to fill the space—this will pop especially well against light and bright exteriors. Small, unique accessories like fake skulls, bats and cauldrons can add to the effect. 
  • Simple and chic: If you’re looking to decorate without going overboard, choose the simplistic route. With muted fall colors, real or faux pumpkins and seasonal flowers like mums and coneflowers, you can get creative without committing to an abundance of decor. 


Get the family involved 

No matter what theme you select to welcome guests, getting your family members involved in the decorating process can help bring you closer together and even create a new autumnal tradition. Adults can work together to DIY a custom wreath for your front door or even paint a welcoming sign. Kids can show off their skills by carving or painting pumpkins that are sure to impress everyone who stops by.
