We’re sharing our favorite fall entry ideas and taking a look back at some old favorites today!
For the past few weeks, we’ve been adding a few seasonal touches to our home as we have time.
Fall is our favorite season of the year and we know it is for so many of you too!
In the past, there have been seasons I’m all “We gotta get the pumpkins out THIS weekend!” Yet other years, we seem to take a more relaxed approach to Fall decorating.
It’s always fun to see how the house takes shape room by room. And to see how much our style changes over the years as well.
Fall entry ideas can be tricky because it’s one of those areas you have to leave room for things like boots, backpacks, purses, coats, and scarves.
Still, it’s also a spot we want to look as festive as the front porch. Especially, given the quick transition between spaces.
Here are a few easy tips to keep in mind when you’re looking for fall entry ideas and inspiration…
Keep a Consistent Color Palette…
As you’re decorating, remember to choose a color palette for the entry based on the colors that are already found in your home. This will help keep things consistent with the way you actually live.
We’ve been incorporating muted rusts, blues, greens, camels, pale pinks, and creamy whites into our fall entry ideas for several years now because our home has a pretty neutral color palette.
If you have a designated place to put on your shoes like a bench, chair, or stool in the entry add texture with pillows, blankets, or scarves.
We use plaid throws and pieces of cut plaid fabric on the front entry bench because it’s really versatile.
Summer is a great time to find cable knit pillow covers at thrift stores (usually at rock bottom prices).
Shopping seasonal sales will help stretch your budget for pillow covers, blankets, and throws too!
I found this vintage plaid wool blanket while out treasure hunting with my Mom.
Bring in Bits of Nature:
Bringing in bits of nature from your yard, your local farmer’s market, grocery store, or craft store is an easy way to add color and seasonal elements to your entry space.
If you’re using clippings from your yard, make sure they’re free from pests before bringing them inside.
Layer Pumpkins into Your Fall Entry Ideas:
Finally, don’t forget the pumpkins!
Pumpkins and gourds come in all different shapes and sizes. They’re relatively inexpensive and are always a fun way to jazz things up.
Choose a vintage container like an old crate, a pretty urn, a champagne bucket, a vintage basket, or a dough bowl filled with pumpkins.
Keep in mind, that loose pumpkins or seasonal plants may not always be a great idea. Especially, if you have curious pets or littles.
I can’t even count the number of faux pumpkins that have Piper-sized teeth marks on them already!
Decorating the entry for Fall is a simple way to welcome your family, neighbors, and guests into your home.
Even if you have a small porch or no porch at all – the front door and entry area can still be festive.
I hope these easy Fall entry ideas have shown you that you don’t have to “go all out” when it comes to decorating if you don’t want to.
Our goal is to always encourage you to do what works best for your personal style and the way you actually live in all seasons of life!
After all, it’s fun to come home to a house that has a seasonal feel.
So, take a few minutes to pull some of your favorite things together. Then spend the rest of the time celebrating all that Fall has to offer!
