I LOVE the fall. Love the soup, love the smells, and love the beautiful colors of the season. I have always wanted to decorate my porch for fall, but felt limited because my porch is on the small side.
I decided that I needed something so I went to Michaels
and shopped away and I’m in love with how everything turned out.
The first thing I looked for was a new fall wreath
. They are on sale right now and there are TONS to choose from. I loved this one with the fall colors, leaves, acorns and pinecones.
I was excited to use my teal post. I love how it works with the orange of the pumpkins and the colors in the wreath. This is on my porch year-round but I love the way it looks all dressed up for Autumn. I just added some fake pumpkins
and a strand of fall leaves
to finish this area off.
Just behind my teal post, I added this wooden crate
which I stained. I loved the idea of adding in a lantern. This was the perfect fit for this area. And of course, add a pumpkin and some fall leaves! The new fall welcome mat was perfect too!
I got a small bail of hay
and threw on another fun pumpkin and matching lantern
with more leaves and a pumpkin in front. I love the mixture of textures, colors and height with this one. Then my barn wood sign sitting next to it is perfection in my opinion.
Wreaths aren’t just for the front door anymore! They’re finding their way to practically every room of the house. And when you’re creating a wreath to celebrate the season or a special occasion, you’re only limited by your imagination. There are some great wreath ideas in The Home Depot Fall Style Guide.
We have a very light kitchen–white cabinets, white backsplash, light countertops, stainless steel appliances, light gray walls, and white board batten around the dining room. I love how bright it is, and actually chose it to be that way, but I like a pop of color to liven things up. We have a weird upper cabinet that angle out towards the dining room. One day I hope to put glass doors on it and fill it with bright serving dishes, but until then I try to keep wreaths hanging on the doors.
I love this tip from Home Depot’s Fall Style Guide: “Create your home’s oasis with the latest trends in kitchen and bathroom décor by using muted, natural hues that sing to warm, cozy spaces, or metal finishes that make your home sparkle.” It was what inspired these two wreaths. (more…)
