Need autumn front door inspiration? Here are some ideas on how we decorated our front door and entry for fall, using natural elements and lots of color.
We got a new autumn front door.
A new farmhouse door.
Doesn’t that seem like such a simple thing?
Nothing even remotely unique.
But for me it is.
You see there used to be a really impressive door here.
It had leaded glass and swirl patterns of birds chirping to each other carrying banners intertwined with vines and leaves and all kinds of exotic plant life.
It was a door that made you sit up and take notice.
A real head-turner.
Everything about it…. said….look at me…..”I’m fancy.”
I like fancy.
I mean, after all, I do wear red lipstick.
And highlight my hair.
And wear sunglasses.
And if that’s not fancy, I don’t know what is.
But I live in a farmhouse–in Kentucky—in the middle of the country.
So when it comes to my doors, I wanted a front door that was simple.
And looked solid and welcoming.
An autumn front door that made you want to knock on it.
Here are five simple autumn front door decorating tips:
1. Add dried hydrangeas in your store-bought garland.
2. Layer in corn husks. I got these from the field across the street, but you can find them in the home improvement store, too.
3. Add texture with different types of pumpkins.
4. Instead of a wreath for the front door, why not add a basket full of dried flowers instead.
5. Make sure you have contrast with your colors and textures. I love adding in the metal spheres to the front door arrangement.
This is a door that will always open for friends and family.
A door that says,”We have sweet tea inside and we’re about to start a bonfire out in the back pasture and we just picked some fresh vegetables and there’s a hot apple pie sitting on the stove and someone brought over a guitar and kick your shoes off and join us.”
And happy to be at the party with a little lipstick on.
Just like me 🙂
