Fall on the Farmer’s Porch
Hi Friends! It’s been awhile. How is summer treating yah? Our’s has been busy but in the best way. I spent everyday with my kids, from beach trips to picnics at the playground, play dates and just some nice lounge days around the house. Oh, if you’re following me over on IG you probably know that we got a puppy! A sweet and lovable little yellow lab we named Levi. Between training him and keeping the kids from smothering him, we’ve had our hands full but our hearts are pretty full too.
As summer winds down, I’ve been thinking about fall decor and getting the itch to switch things up on our farmers porch. I really wanted to update our two red chairs that you can see below with a bench style set up.
I didn’t want to have red chairs out here but I also didn’t want to spend a lot of money replacing them either. So after doing some online browsing I came across this.
Isn’t that industrial worn look so cool and somewhat unexpected for a front porch? This would also look so fun in a mudroom, or at a dining table on one side. So many different possibilities. Once the bench arrived and replaced those two red chairs, which we’ve had here for awhile. It totally inspired me to bring out some fall decor. I know, I know we aren’t even into September. I’m not saying everyone go decorate for fall, I’m just giving you some ideas and inspiration for your own home.
I brought up a few of my seasonal pillows, I got these from Kohls a couple years back but I’ll link some similar. The wreath which i hung from an old window frame, is from T.J. maxx. I purchased it last year and a couple other cute accessories to dress it up.
The “home” pillow is from the target dollar spot (last year) as well as the crate. The “Let’s Fall Together” sign is by this Etsy maker named Ames and Emes it’s one of my favorites. Usually I don’t decorate with orange but on my Farmer’s porch I like the traditional fall colors. It feels classic and cozy to me.
It’s been cool at night here in New England, enough for a flannel shirt and fire in the fire pit. If that’s not a sign of the season beginning to change I don’t know what is. I’m not really ready to let Summer go. But with each season brings exciting new possibilities and beginnings.
The bench totally transformed the look and feel of our front porch. I’m so happy that we purchased it. It wasn’t a huge dent in the ol’wallet either. Under $150! I’ll link it below.
Of course my little model Levi (whom is now 10 weeks and we’ve had him for 2) just had to get in the photo shoot.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you like my little intro into fall decorating. Easing into it friends… Summer fun isn’t over yet. However, I’m excited for some pumpkin spice everything. I can’t wait to share a lot more fun decor ideas in the upcoming weeks. Cheers to a new season approaching!
