This simple fall front porch makes use of layers, textures, and colors to achieve a welcoming fall feel for any guests coming to visit. Or Amazon Prime packages – let’s be honest. Affiliate links included.
Can I be honest with you? I wasn’t going to post this. I wasn’t even going to really take pictures of my fall front porch. I really like how it turned out, but it’s very simple and VERY imperfect. Like – I didn’t even make time to brush dirt off of my planters before I snapped a few cell phone pictures:
I’m craving simplicity this fall
Anyone else? I’m drawn to more simple spaces. I’m finding myself wanting to throw things away (and my husband is seriously thrilled!). I’m craving simplicity and trying to figure out how to convey that on this site.
In this stage of life, with three kids age 5 and under (one of them being 3 months old) I just don’t really care to fuss over elaborate decor. I’m OK with the imperfect. I love sharing the imperfect on Instagram, and I feel like I’ve found “my people” over there who accept my imperfect and even embrace it.
But you know what? I feel intimidated to post the imperfect on my blog. I’m not sure why exactly. Maybe it’s because I’m afraid I’ll lose you guys, and that would make me SO SAD. I hope you know how important you are to me!
Blogging is weird. It’s wonderful, it’s such a blessing to me, and it’s my job, so there’s extra pressure. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not the BEST decorator in the group. I don’t have the NEWEST things every season. I don’t have the BIGGEST house. We have a LOT of work to do. We live life and we live it hard in this home. And if you’re OK with me sharing the imperfect over here on my site – I’ll be able to share more often. If not, that’s OK! But just know that posting will be fewer and farther between.
I’d love to hear from you – whether on Instagram, Facebook, in the comments…anything works! But are you OK with me sharing the imperfect? The “not quite styled but hopefully I can still give you some ideas on how to decorate your home”?
My hope is that you’ll be able to visit me here, get some ideas on how to make your house a home on any budget, and feel like maybe you aren’t the only one with an imperfect home. (hey while you’re at it, you can read my husband’s article about the beauty of messes – he’s got some great encouragement in there!)
Sometimes I’ll share some well-styled and carefully edited pictures, or posts with new holiday decor, or things I think you guys would be interested in from brands I’m working with (please know how very picky I am about who I work with and share with you guys – I turn down SO many because I just don’t love their brand/products). BUT, if you’re OK with it, I’ll be sharing a little more of the everyday decor…the simple tips…and I’ll probably forget to edit out the occasional dustball in the corner. Let’s still be friends, OK? 🙂
PS – this comes up in my Instagram stories a LOT – this is our favorite healthy fall drink (full of antioxidants, immunity boosting, and the kids LOVE IT)
So – some of the things on our porch are old or thrifted, but you can buy some of them below!
I truly believe that every home has potential to be great! I wrote an ebook for you and it’s FREE – come download “A Character Filled Home” here.
