Front Door Fall Decor

While the seasons haven't really officially changed, Midlanders are getting into the fall spirit! Rachel Biggerstaff, owner of Bright Spot Door Designs shares with us how to get fall front porch ready!


Dressing Your Front Door Up for Fall


It’s that time of year again when west Texans adorn their homes with pumpkins, go to Starbucks for a PSL, and buy shirts with long sleeves in hopes that one day soon the weather will cool off and feel like the autumn that is already alive in our hearts and coffee mugs. 


One of the easiest ways to introduce that fall feeling into your home is by showing your front door a little attention.  Just a few cozy additions and some simple touches will make your home the fall favorite of your neighborhood.


Door Hangings

It doesn’t have to be fancy or showy, but a simple autumn wreath like this bright berry ring can change the whole tone of your front door.  Without any other decorations, a wreath or simple wooden sign is enough to draw the eye to your front door.  Add a nice earth tone bow or ribbon for added elegance.



This decorating buzzword, pronounced “HOO-guh,” is a Danish word for a feeling of coziness that fosters contentment.  Think lanterns with flickering candles and pinecones or a warm autumn throw blanket on a rocker or wooden chair.   Add in a natural fiber doormat layered with a simple striped or checked rug for ultimate hygge vibes.  But beware; your neighbors may come knocking on your door demanding a mug of warm cider.



Pumpkins, Pumpkins, Pumpkins…and mums

If all else fails and you want to have a modern autumn front door without having to mess with accessories, you can’t go wrong with pumpkins.  They come in every shape, size, and color and it’s literally as easy as selecting your pumpkins from the nursery or local pumpkin patch, loading them in your car, and bringing them home to plop on your front porch until Thanksgiving.  Buy different colors and sizes to add a touch of decorating flair.  Pile them in a planter to give some elevation.  Or while you’re at the nursery, grab a couple of pots of mums in any color and plop them down next to said pumpkins.  You CANNOT go wrong with pumpkins and mums. 


With these simple ideas in mind, your front door can be autumn amazing in no time.  Now somebody bring me a PSL and a blanket!
