Decorating the Foyer for Fall


This year I am decorating the foyer for fall with vibrant Autumnal color, simple seasonal touches, and lots of love. Pumpkins, fall leaves, and candles all create a warm and inviting feel as you enter our home. Welcome to the farmhouse in the Fall!

Create A Welcome Feel

Warm colors

There is nothing like a beautiful seasonal wreath to greet you at the front door. The vibrant colored fall leaves on the wreath that adorns our front door were my inspiration for our fall decor in the farmhouse this year.  The warm shades of orange, yellow, and burgundy with the rich tone of green stole my heart this season. Throughout the farmhouse, this color palette is carried out for fall in each room.

The element of texture in interior design is always important. However, in fall and winter, it’s an even more important element to use than ever when decorating. Texture creates a feeling of coziness in a room. Adding pieces like woven baskets, textured rugs, and knit blankets helps to make a room feel warm and inviting. While texture is most often considered a physical state of being in home decor, it can also be visual. Visually, texture can be created through patterns in fabric often seen on pillows and furniture pieces as well as in artwork.

Personal Touches

Entering into a home should feel inviting. It should also feel personal. After all, home is the dwelling place where much of our time is spent. The personality of those who live in it should be reflected in how it’s decorated. Therefore, I always try to add personal touches to the foyer of our home with family photos, flower arrangements, and DIYs. It’s a wonderful way for guests to get acquainted with the home and those who live in it.

The fall garland that I used in the foyer is one of my favorite DIYs this season. It hangs on the shelf holding vintage mirrors above the console table. I also hug a small strand from one of the mirrors. This fall garland is so easy to make and creates a simple and beautiful seasonal touch to the foyer for fall. The garland is handmade, therefore, it adds a lovely personal touch to this space. It is often one of the first things people comment on when entering the farmhouse. When visitors discover that I made it, it not only becomes a great conversation piece, but it also creates a warm and inviting feeling because they know it was made by me with love.

Decorating the Foyer for Fall: Simple Touches

It’s no secret that simple touches of the season are my favorite. Throughout the year, decor pieces like vintage distressed books, antiqued brass candlesticks, and baskets can be used around the home. These everyday pieces are affordable and perfect to use in the home year-round. What’s even better is that they can be enhanced with seasonal touches quite easily. By adding Fall touches like leaves, florals, pumpkins, and gourds a simple and beautiful look is created to celebrate the season. In this case, fall.

Of course, as the years have passed, the farmhouse foyer has gotten quieter.  The kids have gone off to college and the hooks in this space don’t get used nearly as much as they once did. Sure, the hustle and bustle of the farmhouse are missed. However, the opportunity to add fall touches to the hooks in the foyer has not gone overlooked. A combination of functional and festive pieces has been added to this space. Together, they create a lived-in look while at the same time, reminding you that Fall is in the air.

You may remember me making a fall wreath for the kitchen window. I fell in love with it! Therefore, when I found myself wishing I had a wreath for the hooks in the foyer, it only made sense to make another one. When I find (or make) something I like, I stick with it. I think I like this one in the foyer even better! It also adds the personal touch that is so important in making a house feel like home. While at the same time, the wreath also celebrates the tremendous beauty of fall. 

All are Welcome

It was a true honor and a pleasure to give you a little tour of our farmhouse foyer. Decorating the foyer for Fall was not only fun and easy, but it was also very cost-effective. Aside from some pumpkins from the local pumpkin patch and a wreath, everything I used to decorate the farmhouse were items I already had. Remember, decorating doesn’t have to cost a lot, nor do you need a lot of seasonal decor to make a big impact. Oftentimes, the most beautiful decorations for the season are simple and intentional touches.
