Simple Fall Porch Decor Ideas

I’ve been adding little touches of fall throughout our home the past few weeks, even if the season itself seems to be holding off. With temperatures near 100 degrees, our flowers are still in full bloom, so I added simple fall porch decor in a muted color palette that compliments rather than competes with them.

I was particularly excited about this week’s theme for our Seasons of Home series because the porch is my favorite space to decorate. It requires just a few simple touches and makes a first impression. Few may come into your home, but many pass by. I find porches to be so charming.

However, I’m not absolutely in love with mine. I am so grateful for our home, but it wasn’t exactly what I was hoping for. Little by little we’ve made it ours, but I still dream of those creamy Cape Cods and Colonials. I have found that it’s best to embrace what you do love. Like those pretty little pebbles on our porch.

In lieu of a traditional door mat which feels dwarfed on our porch, I found this pretty woven jute rug at Joss and Main in a 3×5 which is perfect for covered porches.

Like most of our home, I tend to keep our fall porch decor somewhat utilitarian with purpose. The pillows and throw offer comfort while watching the kids play. The pretty hyacinth basket with handles holds a bundle of firewood for when those crisp cool days arrive.

The addition of an heirloom pumpkin, gourd and squash goes a long way and tend to last a couple months. They’re the perfect accent to the pretty golden hues from the nearby grasses.

  1. So pretty Julie!! Happy fall!!

  2. I’m so ready for fall!!! That was one of the reasons for us to move to the Midwest…Seasons!!! We were in St. Louis this past weekend for our youngest’s baseball tournament, and it was swelteringly hot! I’m ready for the cool weather and coziness fall brings. Love your porch style- simple and lovely!

    • Ha! It always seems like winter is the longest season in the Midwest, but I do enjoy them. It was miserably hot here last weekend, I can’t imagine spending it on a baseball field. Hope he took home some wins!

  3. I love your fall front porch. Nice, simple, and very classy. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Always so beautiful and tasteful. I love the pumpkins/gourds you choose too! Perfection!

  5. I live in St Louis and I have the exact same brick color as yours! I love the paint color of your trim and front door. It seems as if everyone over here paints ultra white trim with this brick color along with black shutters and I think it is way too stark and boring. Could you please tell me what paint colors did u use for these? Thank you, I love your blog!
