As much as I hate to admit it, the fall season will be calling our name very shortly. While I'm super excited about the return of salted caramel mochas (seriously Starbucks I don't know why you can't keep the special salt allll year) I'm not looking forward the cooler temperatures. But, this is the reality of living in the Midwest.
So, in the spirit of embracing Fall, I created a new mood board for our front porch to give it a little autumnal flare. Oh, and I have a great giveaway for you guys!
You may remember back when I posted about our Summer Front Porch Mood Board. Here's a quick reminder of that one:
In fact, out front porch looks pretty similar to this now!
It's beautiful and I love so many things about it! The geometric rug, rose trees, and our freshly painted front door. But, it really is a very summery look. To mix things up a bit I created a new board to reflect the new season, I mean you all know by now I can't leave well enough alone!
To play on the summer 'Black and Chic' mood board, I'm calling this new one 'Fall and Chic'.
I'm loving the updated glam look! I love mums and I can't wait to replace our rose trees (as much as I love them) with a more fall friendly plant. Adding the gold pots brings so much warmth and it's oh so chic. The mirrors are just a fun way to represent the mirrors I already have on the house. Don't be afraid to decorate the outside of your house too...those walls need some love :) And obvi my last name doesn't start with a 'S' but sadly I couldn't find the 'W' letter and I love the look of this.
I'm always looking for an excuse to buy a new rug and this front porch is no exception. This indoor/outdoor striped rug look would look so beautiful layered under a smaller "welcome" mat. Who says your front porch can't have not one but two rugs! Now, if I could find a way to bring a floor lamp outdoors in a tasteful way we'd be in business. But speaking of gorgeous rugs, this brings me to our giveaway!!
The kind folks over at Rug Expedition have offered a $100 gift certificate to one of my fantastic readers! Since the black and white striped rug is only $80 for a 3x5 you'd be one step toward a fancier new front porch for free if you win!
