Are you on social media? If so, did you see that Deb and I shopped our storage unit this past week in order to find some goodies for our new porch? We moved from the House on Winchester in September of 2019. That was three full years ago. We lived in the rental with most of the items that we have now in the cottage. But, a lot of the items in the very back of the storage unit have been there since the day we moved.
I wanted to get part of the porch at the new house decorated for fall. Of course, I wanted to stick with my normal neutral colors for my fall look on the porch. Which include all colors of whites and different colors of woods. It’s my favorite because I feel so calm and peaceful with those tones. It is what I lean toward inside the house so I always carry that outside as well.
I love how my neutral fall porch decor turned out!
We have a bit to go before we get to move into our forever home. BUT, we both see this porch every single day from the cottage. And, we wanted to be able to enjoy it during my favorite season. So we first started by hanging the porch swing. Our porch on the house in roughly 40′ long by 10′ wide, with the front door directly in the middle. So I have plans to have a seating area on each side of the door. Each side with have a porch swing because most everyone gravitates toward them.. so we may as well have two.
Of course I needed some type of coffee table. This is one that I found at the Springfield, OH, flea market probably close to 25 years ago. It has been in several of our homes before landing currently here on the porch. It was an old dining table that was cut down to a coffee table height when I bought it. I painted it a few years back and it may get another full makeover soon.
I took a poll over on our Instagram stories and it was shocking to see that almost half remember this cabinet top. It hung in the old house as an upper cabinet for awhile, and prior to that, it sat in the laundry room. It held some of my collections. I love the way it looks on or porch because half of it is wood colored and have is white. The rusty buckets on the bottom shelf fit right in with our weathered feel.
On top of the cabinet top is an old flower box that I found during the 127 yard sales a few years back. We brought home a stash that I shared in a post if you are interested.
I thoroughly enjoyed decorating this porch in neutral fall colors. It is right up my alley. And, I am ready to get this entire house done an the storage units emptied.
I hope this inspires you to decorate some of your own spaces for fall.
