Cheery Fall Front Door Decorations

It doesn’t take much to create a cheery fall front door– just a few items carefully placed, and color coordinated. These front door decorations adorn the home of April Hoff, who writes the design and DIY blog House by Hoff.

This is part of our Harvest Style Challenge series here on the Home Depot Blog. We sent April a mystery box of fall and harvest decorations for her front porch, and then stood back while she did her fall decorating magic. 

We love the blue, yellow and black palette of her fall front door decorations. It all started with a new coat of paint for her door.

Black, White and Purple Glam Halloween Dining Room

 

Halloween can be spooky, cute, or as we increasingly see, glam. Shonee of Hawthorne & Main definitely went with glam when she decorated her Halloween dining room. 

This is part of our ongoing Halloween Style Challenge series here on The Home Depot Blog. We sent Shonee a mystery box of Halloween decorations, and let her apply her decorating talents to creating a fab Halloween decor with the contents and a little bit of DIY skill. 

She came up with a fun, colorful Halloween dining room and mantel with lots of fun, not-so-spooky details.

Outdoor Decor with Artificial Grass

Artificial grass turned out to be the solution when Kristin Jackson unexpectedly needed to refinish her deck. Not only did it turn out to be an easy, low maintenance way to cover the deck floor, but it also turned out to be a lush, green, barefoot-friendly way to enhance her outdoor decor.

Of course, as the talent behind the very popular DIY and decor blog The Hunted Interior, Kristin knows a thing or two about outdoor decor. She was one of the first participants in our Patio Style Challenge series with her amazing deck makeover. After a minor incident that erased some of the work she did on the deck, she’s back for a bit of a refresh. It’s what we’re calling a Patio Style Challenge Redux.

An Easy Patio Update With Vivid, Carribean-Inspired Color

We loved the zen-inspired patio Camille Simmons styled for our Patio Style Challenge series. But Camille, who’s the talent behind the blog Planning Pretty, insists that something was missing and it was time for an easy patio update.

We’re not going to argue with a talented DIYer the likes of Camille, so… sure! Let’s do a patio update. We were excited to see how she could improve on the comfortable and peaceful outdoor space she designed for her (very fortunate) brother. It’s a Patio Style Challenge Redux.

Turns out her patio update really was easy, as you’re about to see. It mostly involved some spray paint a few simple items for the potting table-turned-outdoor buffet. The patio is still a lovely, peaceful spot, but with color.

Potted Plants, Flowers Add Color to Patio Makeover

With a growing family and extra outdoor living space, it was time for Amy Mikkelsen of Your Southern Peach to embark on a patio makeover.

For this patio makeover– a Patio Style Challenge Redux– she’s added plenty of potted plants and flowers for color and texture, and gives us her tips on how best to display them.

Corner Bench and Flowers Add Charm to Patio

The new corner bench is the star of this patio. Gloria Lebron of I Don’t Know How She Does It! built it on her patio to give the space extra seating and a more welcoming environment. The flower planter that she included in the corner bench design certainly added to the appeal. Of course, the added corner bench seating also gives her more opportunities for her excellent patio decorating ideas.

This is Gloribel’s second Patio Style Challenge for The Home Depot Blog. Previously, she showed us how to make the most out of a very small apartment balcony, but now, she’s working with a larger outdoor design canvas in her new home.

Build a Paver Patio for a Backyard Upgrade

In her previous, renter-friendly backyard upgrade, Caitlin Kruse of Style Within Reach made excellent use of a couple of under appreciated materials: gravel and pavers. She’s back for another backyard project in our Patio Style Challenge series, and this time she puts pavers and gravel to use in building a paver patio.

To be sure, you’ll also see plenty of Caitlin’s talent for outdoor decorating. But the gravel and paver patio is the star of this show. It’s was a very cost effective way for Caitlin to expand her outdoor living space, plus she solved some annoying drainage problems in her backyard.

And best of all, it looks terrific.
