Autumn Potting Shed Porch – French Country Cottage

Bold and beautiful is the mantra for the autumn potting shed porch styling today. Using the same elements that we decorated the barn with- I am showing how you can take a simple porch to autumn beauty in a few minutes. And you might notice a few new baby frizzle silkie chickens running around enjoying themselves too.

Autumn Potting Shed

I have been feeling a whole lot more bold and beautiful with autumn colors this year. There is something about those rich saturated hues of golds & burnt orange. And this autumn foliage is full of those beautiful bold hues. This is the second in our series on London Inspired Doorscapes. Those doors on shops that are full of foliage and flowers and all the things are incredible. The first in our series was the flower arch around the door- and today it is all about autumn with bold and beautiful Balsam Hill.

Door Arch in 15 minutes

For the door arch – I used 3 things. Garlands, Potted foliage and hanging basket foliage. It is a really simple way to create a full look around a door or window. Simply drape the garlands over the top of the door on both sides.

Tip: Layer another row or two of garlands for a super lush look. For this one- I used 2 different style garlands to bring in another layer of autumn elements. As long as you are keeping the color palette the same- it works to mix them on in.

For the bottom of the garland- don’t worry about it reaching all the way to the bottom of the door. That is where your potted foliage comes in. I tucked one on each side and then added the hanging baskets next to them.

Tip: Add potted foliage and hanging baskets (with their hangers removed) to the base of the door garland to create a full ‘puddle’ effect.

Bring in potted mums

I love those big and beautiful mums that appear this time of year. They are so pretty in baskets, pots or wrapped with burlap.

Layer your pumpkins

I love to use bold and heirloom pumpkins for a full autumn feeling. This is a mix of faux and real pumpkins stacked and tucked on the steps.

Add some mood lighting

Fairly light lanterns are a great way to bring a bit of ambiance to the porch – even better if they are on a timer and you don’t have to turn them on and off every day.

All together- these work to create a charming and welcoming porch and entry for autumn. Stay tuned for a quick change look to transition to Halloween in a snap.
