Fall is just around the corner and it’s time for you to update your porch décor from cheugy to chic. This year we’re thinking tonal, monochromatic elegance (minus the insane price tag). These front porch decorating ideas will surely pique your interest by emphasizing the effortless aesthetic of Canadian contemporary design.
Illuminate Your Entryway
Whether you’re fond of the classic “fairy lights” or not, it’s important to keep your porch bright for those early nights. By adding metal candle holders, you can illuminate your porch in style – with your favourite scent to boot!
Tall Outdoor Lanterns, West Elm, $86.
Lounge with Sophistication
For those who have the space to add a lounge chair or two, we highly recommend it! Relaxing on your porch has it’s own unique vibe that’s reminiscent of the old Victorian Hamptons homes that we know and love.
Slate Lounge Chair, Article, $429.
Integrate Ornate Hanging Pieces
The part about porch décor is the creativity with ornamental pieces. We often think about wreaths as something meant for the winter months, but we’re here to tell you that’s not the case! You can elevate the look and feel of your front door with a minimalist wreath, no eluding to any particular season. Alternatively, you can learn how to make your own spooky wreath.
Black Branch Wreath, CB2 Canada, $90.
You’ve Got Mail!
If you live in suburbia, you’re typically assigned a mailbox at a communal station in the neighbourhood. But what happens when you get those promotional papers thrown on your front lawn? It can ruin the overall appeal of your set up. That’s why adding a clean cut mailbox is the perfect addition to alleviate the clutter and add a bit of unique flare.
Teak and Black Mailbox, West Elm, $162.
Pumpkins Are Not A “Faux-Pas”
Whoever said pumpkins are overrated have never seen these chic monochromatic alternatives. We love a classic orange, but there’s something so effortlessly alluring about a black or off-white pumpkin that really sets the Fall mood.
Faux Black Pumpkin, West Elm, $60.
Elevate the Welcome Mat
Often the challenge with adding porch furniture is the heavy contrast between the pieces and the flooring, a soft outdoor area rug or welcome mat will help add an extra bit of cohesion.
Welcome Mat, Sundays, $883.
Adding plants even in colder weather always creates a nice element of contrast with your other furniture pieces. The added benefit however is the ability to create privacy partitions between you and people casually walking by.
Outdoor Planter, CB2 Canada, $179.
With how unpredictable the weather has been over the past year, we suggest investing in a heating lamp ASAP. Regardless if you choose to use it or not in the Fall, it may prove to be a worth-while investment for those colder winter nights.
Electric Patio Heater, Wayfair, $280.
Pour Some Bubbly
OK here us out, imagine sipping a bottle of champagne on your perfectly redesigned porch on a cool Fall evening. If that doesn’t scream picturesque rom-com scene, we don’t know what will.
Metal Champagne Bucket, Pottery Barn Canada, $49.
Swing Into Sweater Weather
Deep down we know you’ve always wanted a swing of some kind on your porch. It’s romantic, it’s classic, it’s exactly the eccentric addition you need to make to your porch right now.
Hanging Outdoor Chair, Wayfair, $680.
