I love this video with tips for creating a charming and rustic fall display for your front porch or patio. The sample displays are gorgeous and give me a lot of good ideas for my own front porch area.
Creating a Colorful Rustic Display
Use a repetition of color throughout your front porch display to tie in the entire decoration. Your accent color (green in this case) can be repeated through the solid pieces like a rocking chair, bench, trellis, etc and echoed through the selection of plant materials. Gourds and pumpkins are commonly used, and look great on this patio.
Brown and Orange Patio Display
Old stems and seedheads are fascinating in a fall patio decoration and this diaplay in the video shows both dried yucca and dried hydrangea plants. Orange makes the perfect accent color to stand out and catch the eye. Both plants, like pumpkins, and found garden items like garden sheers and other items are used.
Repetition of Pattern Leads the Eye
This porch used repeating elements to catch the eye and lead the eye through the entire entry way. Use planters close to the door, or long gourds, hay bales and other fall decor to create patterns that give you a sense of movement.
