The year 2020 has done quite the number on us, most of us are stuck at home without much to do or even much socializing. Reason being why decorating your home has become so important. It’s no longer just a space where you get to relax, it’s become everything in between. Keeping that in mind, it’s important to keep yourself and your space as normal as possible.
What better way to do that then by decorating the exterior of your home to match the interior? Here is our updated fall porch décor for 2020, let us help brighten your home a little bit more this year.
Blend the new with the old
Most of us aren’t ready to let go of summer, and that is perfectly okay. In fact, if you aren’t ready to let go of your summer décor it’s time to consider the idea of bringing in fall bits and blending it all together.
The key is working with classic pieces and having them become the focus of the room. Pair your floral bits with a rug or fall throw pillows for that essence of fall that isn’t overwhelming.
Easy is the way to go when you don’t want to do too much. Adding a simple fall wreath will give your porch a flair without being too obvious.
Plus it’s super easy to work with, you could even do it yourself if you want a more customized look or consider going traditional with a classic fall wreath that features leaves, acorns, or pumpkins in classic hues.
Dried flowers are an excellent option when you want to spruce up a room without having to stick to classic elements. They’re a bit edgier as they thrive in cooler weather and don’t need maintenance.
It’s one of those items you can easily use and forget about. Furthermore, they come in an array of colors making them even easier to work around. Add marigolds for a classic fall approach that is chic and charming at once.
Refresh your Lighting
With more foot traffic around the cooler months, it’s quite important to refresh your light fixtures. Refreshing them will not only give you more serenity in knowing your walkway is well lit, but it allows you to work with a new color palette.
Consider working with fixtures that have a gold finish or rose gold for a warmer touch. Or change your light bulbs to give off a warm cast than they normally would.
If there is one tip, we can give that you will take from this post it is- symmetry. Symmetry is key when it comes to decorating any space especially a porch. You want to keep both sides of your stairs perfectly symmetrical.
Doing so will not only make the space look more elegant but it creates a focal point. Bring in large pieces and work them on both sides while having smaller ones be the accent touch. Add a bold dose of color to complete the vibe with a fall/Halloween touch.
There comes a time where you must face the fact that pumpkins are a must during fall- this is the time. Whether you love pumpkin spice latte, pumpkin pie, or pumpkin ice cream, this particular vegetable is all the rage during the fall. That includes using it as décor.
However, this time around you want to get personal. The idea is to make the pumpkins feel apart of the space and not as if they don’t belong. Therefore, paint them the color of your home, or paint your address on them, either or it should feel like an essential aspect.
Just like we advertise the idea of mixing metals indoors, we also love the idea of taking it outdoors. The key is working with multiple metals and having them work together.
It’s all about making them feel unified without going overboard. Bring in bits of gold, rose gold, silver, and rust metal to complete the look. Pair in multiple bits of all three metals and allow them to make a statement on their own while working with other minimal décor.
Most individuals have some type of outdoor seating that remains on their porch all season long, if you already have a chair or two its time to replace them for a bench. During the cooler months, you want to consider having cozier furniture.
Not only will it make you want to spend more time outdoor’s but it will also give your space a more alive feel. Work in a cozy bench and add throw pillows, doing so will instantly make your outdoors come to life with a fall vibe.
For a soft color palette that will not take away from the décor you already have to bring in shades of white. Whether that is through white flowers, pumpkins, or adding white Halloween décor.
Having a white display will make any space feel grand while being quite charming for the season. Furthermore, add bits of silver to complete the look in an effortless manner.
When in doubt, a colorful twist is all you need. Having a colorful touch can make any décor come to life. Work with an array of colorful elements and display them effortlessly.
Add bright shades of orange, red, plums, green, and yellow for that fall feel that surrounds the entire room. Fill containers with these shades for that seamless touch that oozes modern.
