Fall Entry Decorating Ideas

Today, we’re sharing our favorite fall entry decorating ideas and taking 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. 

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 this weekend!” 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 and how much our style changes over the years too.

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 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.

Since we have mostly neutral tones in our home we’ve been adding bits of muted rust, blues, greens, camels, pale pinks, and creamy whites for Fall over the years.

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.

We use plaid throws and pieces of cut plaid fabric as a dining table runner, on the porch, layered on the bed with other linens, or on the front entry bench – literally, it’s that 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! We recently found this plaid on sale over the Labor Day weekend.

Bring in Bits of Nature:

Bringing in bits of nature from your yard, your local farmer’s 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 an 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. 

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!

I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve had to trade our sweet rescue Piper a treat for a pumpkin she’s carried under the table or the bed trying to be sneaky. It’s like living with a toddler. She’s super cute and totally worth it but completely mischievous all at the same time 😂 Hope your Fall season is all that you need it to be, CoCo
