Sit Back & Relax

If you’re relaxed and prefer to keep things casual and slightly shabby chic, you can make neighbors and friends feel at home with a farmhouse-inspired theme and a bundle of fresh flowers.

What's Old is New

DIY dreamers can easily take one man’s trash and turn it into their treasure. Breathe new life into an old bike or a vintage find by repainting it and incorporating it into your decorating scheme. Pair it with an autumnal garland to take the look up a notch.

Happy Family

Family bonding is made a little easier with the help of autumn leaves, temperate weather, a nice porch and a rocking chair for everyone. Bonus points for chairs that are decked out in fall-inspired hues.

Flannel Season

Fun fact: Plaid is fall’s favorite pattern. Pair the print with a comfy, cozy pillow and you won’t ever want to leave your porch... except to snap a pic for Instagram or say hi to some impressed new neighbors.

Welcoming Committee

You can swing seamlessly into the most wonderful time of year with a snuggly quilt and a luxurious swinging chair, but just remember not to nod off in the middle of your autumnal bliss. It’s a porch, after all, not a bedroom.

Clean Slate

Not all of us need to populate a porch with plaid, orange and every accessory under the sun. Keep things glowy and bright with white, instead. But be warned, this isn’t for those afraid of a little extra maintenance or frequent cleaning.

Feathered Friend

Halloween-happy decorators will absolutely approve of this small, spooky touch inspired by Edgar Allan Poe. If you love a little themed decor, but don't want to turn your home’s facade into a full-on haunted house, this is the perfect compromise.

Harvest Reaped

Not every plant dies in the fall. A green thumb is an enviable skill, so why not populate every planter with the season's favorite bloom, mums? You’ll be reaping the harvest of your efforts and your abode will look all the better for it, too.

Creative Space

You don’t have to worry about keeping the DIY projects to the garage if you incorporate your hobbies and workspace into your exterior porch. A hutch and some storage help keep things from getting too messy, while screened-in walls add an extra layer of protection.

Spooky Greeting

Festive Halloween decorations can be welcoming too! This chic, but spooky entrance features cozy and warm blankets that will be useful throughout the cooler months, as well as cute themed pieces that can be swapped out for turkeys once November rolls around.
