Front Porch Decorating Ideas: Red front door from Sandra of Sawdust Girl blog

 

In our Style Challenge series, we ask some of our favorite bloggers from around the web to surprise us with their ideas for creating a stylish and functional space using Home Depot products as a starting point. 

Sandra, from the Sawdust Girl blog, shares her simple front porch decorating ideas. See how painting her front door in a lively red transformed the look of her front porch. She added some potted plants and a couple of DIY benches, too, to boost her home’s curb appeal to a whole new level.

I’ve read that a red front door bids guests and travelers “Welcome” in almost every culture. I love that!

Plus, I wanted a red door because I thought it would contrast well with the white trim and stone on the front of my house.  :-)

We’ve lived in our home for two years, and while I’ve done a LOT of work on the inside, I’ve completely ignored the front porch. That’s funny because the front porch is the first thing people see when they come to visit.

Getting the invitation to participate in the Home Depot Front Door Design Challenge lit a fire under me to take a real hard look at my front porch.

 

Front Porch Decorating Ideas: Front door before the front porch makeover

 

It’s not terrible, but it’s pretty blah –which is sad because it’s a huge covered porch and has some real potential.

The first thing to tackle was painting the front door. Nothing is that simple though.

First I had to clean…

When The Home Depot asked if I wanted to be a part of their 2012 Style Challenge for the Holiday season, I knew right away Challenge Accepted! I LOVE decorating for Christmas, and this is by far my favorite outdoor set up I’ve ever done. I knew right away I wanted a rustic outdoor scheme. I wanted to really bring nature into my décor pieces and have that homey-rustic feel. I added in hints of reds, white, and greens for the color scheme to have a “natural” holiday feel.

Christmas Decorating Ideas for Your Front Door from Kyle of Knight Moves

In our Style Challenge series, we ask some of our favorite bloggers from around the web to surprise us with their ideas for creating a stylish and functional space using Home Depot products as a starting point.

Kyle Knight of the blog Knight Moves is a budding interior designer in Dallas. Beyond just having great taste, she certainly knows how to create a beautifully designed space. In the Holiday Edition of our Style Challenge series, we challenged Kyle to take her talents outdoors to give us her Christmas decorating ideas for a festive front door. 

I’ll be honest … there have been years in the past when I didn’t execute a full-home Christmas décor operation, but I never fail to hang a wreath on the door and put out some twinkle lights. The front door is just one of those must-decorate spots, don’t you think? During the holiday season, it’s pretty much a sure thing that your entry door will be seen by at least a few visitors and guests, so why not make it merry and bright? A wreath paired with a garland around the doorway is a simple, classic pairing and thus it’s a good place to start.

I’m not one for over-the-top outdoor decorations (but I do love seeing them in other yards) so a wreath + garland suits my decorating ethos because the combo is understated, but still welcoming and festive. This year, I was given some goodies from The Home Depot to spice up my front door and of course, there was garland and a nice, full faux pine wreath in the mix. With my holiday bounty, here’s the look I put together …

Holiday decorating with Carrie of Hazardous Design | Front door with garland, wreaths, and small Christmas trees

In our Style Challenge series, we challenge some of our favorite bloggers from around the web to surprise us with their ideas for creating a stylish and functional space using Home Depot products as a starting point. 

Carrie Rigsby of the blog Hazardous Design took part in the Holiday Edition of the Style Challenge by creating a festive front porch space, perfect for her historic New England home. Take a look at her lovely Christmas front door decorations, and learn how she made decorative swags using greenery from her own garden. 

The holiday season in New England is truly a magical time of year. The winter air is crisp and puts a rosy glow on people’s cheeks. Freshly fallen snow makes everything look like a Norman Rockwell painting. I can’t help but get into a festive mood. Most importantly, I love how friends and family make time to get together and celebrate the season. And what better way to welcome friends and family to your home during the holidays than with a beautifully decorated front door?

Inspired: A Front Door For Fall

Fall-inspired front door inspiration board

One area of the home that always gets a makeover in the fall is the front door. Whether it’s a pumpkin in October or a wreath in December, autumn is just that time of year that we give our home a little boost of curb appeal to say to friends and family, “Welcome! Come on in!”

In the inspiration board above, we wanted to create a space that felt quite festive and cozy but still sophisticated and simple enough to last from early October through early December.

A color palette is always an easy place to start when you’re looking to update a space. It immediately helps you establish a look and feel, and it also helps you narrow down your furniture and accessory options. We loved the rusty oranges in the Dolce Mango outdoor pillow and the Tuscan outdoor pillow from Home Decorators Collection.
