Bright leaves, seasonal scents, festive flair — there’s nothing sweeter than fall in North and South Carolina! Now that the magic’s in the air, it’s time to spruce up the aesthetic of your NewStyle home’s exterior to match the lovable look of the new season. This fall, get inspired by some of our favorite design trends and add pops of cozy autumn energy to your space:
Pumpkin Vase: The ultimate piece of fall flair, pumpkins serve as the most stylish vases for your front step. Carve out a pumpkin or gourd (white ones look especially quaint and beautiful) and place containers of your favorite fall flowers inside, whether warm-colored mums, pansies, or more.
DIY Wreath: Do you fall head over heels for a seasonal DIY project? You’re going to want to make a new wreath every week! These festive wreaths incorporate things like plaid, fall fruit, flowers, harvest wheat, eucalyptus, puzzle pieces, pinecones, letter boards, hydrangea, autumn berries, and much more.
Fruit Bowl: Adding a seasonal touch to your relaxing porch just makes it that much cozier. Incorporate the sweetness of fall into your favorite space with warm-colored fruits like apples and pears. Find a beautiful bowl — copper is always fall-approved — and fill it with the season’s natural gems.
Scented Candles: From apple spice to nutmeg and everything in between, the sweet scents of fall can send you to a state of calm. Not only that, these scents work wonders in your mind and remind you of your fondest fall memories! Do you have a favorite autumn aroma? Make your own candle, AKA the perfect decor piece!
Door Mat: There’s no better time than fall to place a fun and festive mat at your door. Whether you go for a spooky-themed piece for trick-or-trickers or a timeless autumn design, your family and friends will love walking up to your door as they visit you this season.
Pumpkin Cart: Bar carts may be all the rage inside your home (is it time to break out the delicious autumnal red wines yet?) but pumpkin carts are making their way to the outside. This porch-front bar cart is given a new look when it’s filled with an autumnal crate and green oak leaves between beautiful white pumpkins.
Barrel Planters: Fall flowers and textures create a lovely vibe in your yard that make coming home even sweeter. Barrel planters offer a rustic aesthetic that pairs perfectly with yellow, orange, and red flowers. Try several planters of different sizes, and get creative with your flower arrangement.
Cotton & Muted Colors: Adorning your front door with fall-themed decor is nothing new, but this season, it’s all about light, serene colors. Whether you’re a sucker for a good wreath, pumpkins on your step, or trendy lanterns and candle holders, opt for more subtle hues like cotton to create an ethereal front-door vibe.
