One thing that excited me about our new home was the porch! I only had a small stoop at our last house, but this house has a nice front porch with lots of potential for decorating for the seasons.
We still have some power washing and window cleaning to do, but the porch is coming along and looking cozy for fall.
Decorating for fall is easy, because you can put out some pumpkins and mums and hang a festive wreath on the door and call it a day.
I selected the boxwood and twig wreath, which is neutral and transitional. I also saw potential to add things (and take them away) to make it suit specific seasons. For fall, I added a few fall picks and faux mini-apples to give it more color. I’ll just remove the picks when the season transitions to winter.
I also made some updates to the porch that went beyond season decor.
The old porch light was a little small and the frosted glass, especially when dirty, didn’t allow for much light to shine through. I liked the lantern-style, though. I upgraded it to the Colchester Lantern, which is a style similar to what was there, but was larger and looked more refined.
I already had the Ingrid bench, also from Joss & Main, and I painted it in a soft green to match the front door.
All in all, it was a few small changes that spruced up the porch for fall and beyond.
