The best way to get into the spirit of fall is to redesign your front entrance to match the season! There are many small changes that you can make to get festive, without blowing your budget. By capturing some of the most iconic autumn elements and pulling them into your design, you can easily achieve the best looking foyer on the block!
Reclaimed wood is a great way to bring a sense of warmth into your front entrance this fall. By adding something as simple as a small bench or chair, you can take your entrance space to the next level. Combining functionality and aesthetics, natural wood will provide a sense of character to your foyer, while also serving a purpose. Rustic pieces of furniture can add a touch of old-world charm to what might be an otherwise dull space. If you enjoy being on the cutting edge of interior design, look for something combining reclaimed wood and iron bars or piping, to add an industrial look to your entrance.
Add Splashes of Colour
When people think of autumn, one thing likely comes to mind before everything else – the colours! It is important when re-imagining your front entrance for fall that you add splashes of colour that evoke that sense of coziness and warmth that is synonymous with this time of the year. Grab a plaid throw blanket combining reds, oranges and browns, and drape it over your wooden bench or chair. Add accent colours with picture frames, pillows, lamps or rugs. The sky is the limit! Simply walk into any home decor store in autumn and you will be amazed by all of the options that you have.
Bring Nature Inside
Another important element of autumn is the time of the harvest. Recreate this look in your front entrance by collecting iconic images of the harvest and use them to adorn your tabletops or window ledges. Placing a few ears of dried corn into a wicker basket, along with a few freshly picked apples, will give your foyer a welcoming presence for your guests. If you are crafty, you can also work with materials such as leaves, corn husks and hay to create a stunning entrance just outside of your front door, welcoming everyone in before they even get ready to knock. Most important of all, don’t forget the pumpkins and gourds! These aren’t just for decorations for outside, as the smaller versions of these will look fantastic along with the other harvest elements inside, such as your basket of dried corn and fresh apples. Adding pumpkins will also create more of that pop of colour that everyone is aiming to achieve at this time of the year.
Don’t Forget the Door
Make your front entrance look welcoming before your guests even step inside with a beautiful autumn-inspired wreath. Fallen leaves, pine cones, dried corn and husks, branches, and much more can be used to create your very own festive wreath! If you aren’t particularly crafty, there are also many options available to you at local craft stores and vendors of all kinds. Get into the festive spirit and decorate your front entrance today!
