Fall Entry Decorating Ideas

Today, we’re sharing our favorite fall entry decorating ideas and a look back at some old favorites!

For the past few weeks, we’ve been adding a few seasonal touches to our home here and there as we have time. So far, we’ve shared Summer to Fall Decorating IdeasEasy Fall Tablescape Ideas, 5 Steps to Creating an Easy Fall Mantel as well as Fall Wreaths & Autumn Door Decor Ideas and 17 Ways to Ease into Fall. 

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 times I’m all “We gotta get the pumpkins out STAT!” Yet other years, we seem to take a more relaxed approach to fall decorating.  Either way, it’s always fun to see how the house begins to take shape room by room.

Fall entry decorating ideas can be a bit tricky given the entry is one of those areas where you have to leave room for things like boots, backpacks, purses, coats and scarves. That said, it’s also a spot we want to look as festive as the front porch given the quick transition from one space to the other.

Here are a few easy to tips to keep in mind that will help you make decorating the entry for Fall both functional and seasonal…

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 have mostly neutral tones in our home and have been adding bits of muted blues, greens, camels and creamy whites for Fall.

Add Texture 

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. This is my all-time favorite plaid throw. We’ve used it as a dining table runner, on the porch, layered on the bed with other linens – literally it’s so versatile.

Summer is a great time to find cable knit pillow covers at thrift stores (usually at rock bottom prices) and shopping seasonal sales will help stretch your budget for pillow covers, blankets and throws too! 

Bring in Bits of Nature 

Bringing in bits of nature from your yard, your local farmers market or the craft stores is an easy way to add color and seasonal elements to your entry space.  If you’re using clippings from your yard though, just make sure they’re free from pests before bringing them inside. 

Layer Pumpkins in Your Fall Entry Decorating 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 this old crate, a pretty urn, mop or champagne bucket or even a dough bowl filled with pumpkins would be awesome too.

Keep in mind, loose pumpkins or seasonal plants may not be a great idea. Especially, if you have curious pets or littles. I had to move these the minute I took the last picture he he.

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 be festive.

I hope these easy Fall entry decorating 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. 

That said, it’s so much 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! Until next time, I’ll see you on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest.

Many blessings,
