Every home has a story, and they are as vast and varied as the world is wide. But they all start with inspiration, and inspiration starts with our surroundings. That’s what home is. Family. Friends. A sense of place. An amazing view. It is all part of what makes a space a home because your home is where you truly live. As homeowners ourselves we understand that your best life begins with a home that inspires you.

From minimalist decor to maximalist DIYs and everything in between.

There’s no better time to embrace a cozy home vibe than the fall season, and your porch — not just your interior — is a great place to start. Autumn presents the opportunity to decorate with earth tones, experiment with creative pumpkin crafts and try new ways to arrange decorative accents. And this doesn’t mean you have to blow your budget. With a bit of inspiration, you can assemble a picture-perfect porch look that suits your design aesthetic and budget. You’re sure to find the perfect outdoor setup for you.

Take a Maximalist Approach

If Halloween is the highlight of autumn for you, don’t miss the chance to decorate your porch for the big day. Pumpkins galore, a leaf-adorned door and a pair of dried wheat stalks can complete the look.

Incorporate Throws

Make your porch cozier for the season by dressing up seating with soft throw blankets.

Add a Wooden Ladder

(As pictured in the Header) Decorative ladders with a rustic flair can be used in a number of ways, including showing off your best throw blankets for the fall season.

Show Off Your Pumpkin Crafts

Whether you love nothing more than carving pumpkins or decking them out with stylish fabrics, make them a part of your fall porch decor.

Bring in a Hammock

…And put those porch throws to work! A hammock is the perfect way to carry the summer vacation straight into autumn.

Dress Up a Hay Bale

A hay bale is a creative way to introduce texture into your fall decor. Instead of placing all of your decorative accents directly on the ground, take advantage of the height that a hay bale offers. Style it with pumpkins, pine cones, dried corn, and more.

Try a Farmhouse Look

Farmhouse style—a welcoming aesthetic that can give a space a collected feel—is perfect for autumn. Pair pumpkins with rustic and country-inspired touches, like wooden lanterns, a checkered throw, and a twig wreath, and your porch will be ready for the season.

Incorporate Greenery

Balance an eye-catching assortment of pumpkins and gourds with tall planters filled with lush greenery.

Layer Soft and Warm Lighting

Vintage string lights add a soft, playful touch to a porch, while lanterns filled with white candles lend a warm, rustic and sophisticated fall flair.

Go for a Minimalist Arrangement

Simplicity never goes out of style. Place a patterned throw on your bench and a few pumpkins on the floor to achieve a stylish, autumn, minimalist look.

Fill a Lantern with Mini Pumpkins

When placed in a lantern or another type of decorative container, a collection of white gourds and mini pumpkins can become a fall focal point.

Pile on the Pillows

A mix of throw pillows not only makes your seating more comfortable and cozy—it’s an easy way to play with patterns and colors that capture the season.

Practice Symmetry

Every interior designer understands the power of symmetry. Display a pair of your favorite plants (ferns are a no-fail choice), along with other accessories such as pumpkins, candles, and lanterns, for a picture-perfect fall look.

Weave in Vintage Accents

If you enjoy decorating with vintage items, like tables or trunks, why not rely on them to enhance your porch? They’re especially useful for adding seasonal character to a black and white design scheme.

Celebrate the Harvest

Pile on the gourds and mums to make an autumnal spread that highlights the season’s bounty.

DIY a Doormat

Dress up a bare doormat with your family’s monogram, and add some polka dots for extra fall flair.

Put a Bow on It

String a bunting between a burlap-wrapped wreath for door decor that blends well with the season’s changing leaves.
