How to Enhance Your Home’s Exterior for the Holidays

glamfall-229x300 glamwinter-229x300One of the joys of the holidays is going out and about to see how others have decorated their homes. It not only adds an excitement to the air, but also may inspire you for how you’d like to decorate the exterior of your own home. Perhaps the best place to start is the front porch, which is your home’s holiday greeting to all who visit or pass by. Whether your style is glam and glitz or traditional and country, these tips will make it easy to decorate your porch to celebrate fall, and then transition it seamlessly to winter holiday décor in no time!

GO FOR GOLD WITH GLAM DECOR A simple, clean, elegant décor never goes out of style. And nothing says glamour quite like the color combination of black, white, and gold, which works quite well as a tool to show your style throughout the seasons. In the fall, take advantage of front door planters by mixing autumn vegetables such as white gourds and cornstalks with pinecones. Plus, you can add a striking focal point to your autumn décor by hanging a gold-painted harvest wreath on your door—this will maintain your glam theme while adding an extra touch of the season. In the winter, switch out the autumn vegetables with more seasonal ornament-style décor, and forgo the usual pine wreath by opting for a clean gold straw wreath, to which you can add your own personalized touch of the season. Cross-seasonal tip: Stringing pinecones around your door is an ideal transitioning tool—you won’t have to switch them out during the change of seasons!

traditionalwinter-300x225KEEP IT COUNTRY WITH RUSTIC DECOR
The autumn and holiday seasons both evoke a sense of home and tradition, which is not only appealing to a lot of people, but also a hot design trend. You can reflect this style by implementing the tips below and bringing them all together in a bronze-colored tub. In the fall, incorporate the colors of the season with fall vegetables, including mini gourds, autumn corn, and corn stalks; mix in some pinecones; and add a pop of white to contrast the oranges of autumn by including a white pumpkin in the mix. In the winter, switch out your traditional autumn colors with all white items, and frost the pinecones from your fall décor to bring the holidays to your doorstep; add a touch of green with some pine branches, which will also welcome guests with the scent of the season. Cross-seasonal tip: Fill your tub with plenty of newspaper to add lift to your items so they stand out more.
