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.

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.

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?

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 …

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.
