10 Ways To Bring Fall Charm To Your Outdoor Space
While the warmest days of the year are now behind us, a few changes to our favorite outdoor spaces are all that’s needed to make them enjoyable through the fall. Click through for 10 outdoor decorating ideas to cozy up your porch or patio for autumn.
Layer in vintage items. Let rustic pieces with patina bring soul to your outdoor space. Vintage summer sports equipment elevates this porch, and prevents the items from having to be stowed away through the winter.
Bring the outdoors in. An assortment of houseplants and set of wicker rocking chairs give this enclosed porch an organic feel that’s true to the home’s rural setting — and will stay green far after the leaves have fallen.
Set up seasonal seating. The owners of this Vancouver home move their set of Adirondack chairs from their summer spot on the front porch to this secluded backyard patio in the fall. A stone fire pit keeps late-night gatherings comfortable.
Cozy up summer seating for autumn. Throw blankets and patterned pillows are a simple addition to a wicker porch swing that invites hours of relaxation outdoors.
Give new life to something old. A pair of weathered olive buckets bring a rustic, seasonally appropriate look to this front porch. Fiery mums pop against the navy door.
Let nature be the star. Designer Suzanne Dimma’s nature-inspired retreat comes with an impressive view of the Georgian Bay, so it’s no surprise she kept her patio decor at a minimum. A set of chairs are all that’s needed to unwind.
Decorate with white pumpkins for an unexpected twist. A stylish alternative to orange pumpkins, white pumpkins scattered around the porch create a warm welcome.
Paint a front door in a statement-making color. For porches on the smaller side, eschew adornments and create a warm welcome with a door in a daring hue or seasonal shade.
Light a fire to combat the cold. A handsome stone fireplace keeps this lounging area a favorite hangout spot well into the fall. A wicker basket filled with blankets provides an extra measure of warmth, if needed.
Adorn a table with pumpkins and gourds. Designer Terry Ryan gave a simple teak table an autumnal update by dressing it with an assortment of mini pumpkins, gourds and leaves.
