The time of beautiful vibrant colors and sweater weather is here! Fall season is my favorite with all of the cozy fall porches and the layers you can create. There are so many ways to layer porches to make them cozy. As many of you know I love to change the fall spaces all the time because of so many beautiful colors.
Creating the porch spaces is one of the many fall things I look forward to each year. Since many of you have asked how I decide to style this space each year, I am going to share my thought process. Even though I do think what if I just style it like I did last year. I always have to talk myself into making the changes!
Pick the Spaces
My first go to is to decide where I want the main focal point to. For our home, it is the front steps that lead to the door. They are spacious and can handle the depth and layers of the pumpkins. The other spaces was the table on the porch and then of course the porch swing area.
What do you use for a base layer, is another question. I choose to use pumpkins as the base layer and then layer in fall mums to fill the holes. When layering pumpkins it can be a little tricky if you love to have different shapes and types of pumpkins like I do. There are few ways to layer pumpkins. You can either layer them around chunky crocks with mums in them or you can layer them directly on the stairs then stick the mums in pots and layer those in. Either way makes an amazing cozy fall porch view.
This is the layer I like to call fill the holes. There are a few ways to do this. My favorite way and guide is to always use fall florals. This may be fall mums, cabbage, kale, or even when we do not think of this a floral but corn stalks. These are easy pieces that can fill those tricky holes that pumpkins leave when stacking them.
Texture/ Dimension Layer
Use this as the final step and add in some fun vintage or fall decor pieces. This year I used a vintage milk crate and box to be used as planters for the mums. You can use olive buckets, crocks, or basically anything that can hold a plant or pumpkin. For Halloween, I will be adding in some fun oil cans that I will be sharing next week on the blog.
Cozy it up
Finally step to the cozy fall porch guide is to cozy the spaces up! The other spaces on the porch that you have decided to add fall too. You can add fall pillows, cozy throws, and a few pumpkins and a fall floral to tie it all together. This is where I bring a few pops of the same touches from the main focal point and make it cozy. Anything that you love to enjoy during this season is the perfect piece to cozy up the space and feel home.
This cozy fall porch guide, I hope helps you style your porch for the fall season with fun and help. Anything that makes you feel home and at peace is perfect for the time. Always remember there is never a wrong way, it is all your creative space and you can make it what you love! Thank you for stopping by the blog today and everyday!
