How to Cozy Up your Porch for Fall

Porches are more than just an entrance to a living space, they are a living space. It does not cost a lot of time or money to transition a porch from summer to fall, but with small attention to detail, guests may want to take a seat and stay outdoors a while. Simple things like comfy seating, lighting, and throw blankets are all easy ways to create a cozy fall ambience in your outdoor space. The decor and color palette also set the foundation for a Halloween-themed area – all that’s left to do is add a few spooky elements like bats, spiders and the like.

We’ve rounded up inspo from some of the most popular bloggers on the internet and as expected, their work is beautiful. Take a look at which styles suit your taste and make sure to share your spaces with us this fall!

Black & White

Maison de Pax created cozy autumn vibes in Southern style (and heat!). The gradient color palette of black and white is tied together with small accents such as string lights, outdoor curtains, a patterned area rug, and throw blankets for everyone.


Big & Bold

Hallstrom Home added a warm, fall touch to her porch with a chunky knitted throw, and we need it, now.


Pale Blues

Traditional fall elements and a muted color scheme resulted in Home Stories A to Z’s beautiful front porch. She mixed real and faux gourds and coated them with chalk paint that matches her front door. The corn stalks and wreath lend a rustic vibe to the scene and the green hydrangeas add a pop of color.



Modern Glam packed her front porch with personality using pastel pumpkins, string lights, and seasonal flowers. The suspended seating makes the entryway look even more inviting.


Maximum Cozy

Comfy seating, warm lighting, blankets, and a fire pit – is there anything Bless’er House’s porch doesn’t have?


Beachy Blush

You don’t have to adorn your space with typical fall decor and colors, Taryn Whiteaker didn’t. Instead, she took a different route with pink blush tones and gold details, and the result is stunning. The tall grass and natural rug and wreath accessories are unlike your average autumn display, yet still emulate a warm, fall feeling.
