Creating A Welcoming Fall Entryway

Earlier in the week we touched on the inviting decor of your porch for Fall. In the same way, when guests enter your home in the next few months, the first space they see should be warm, beautiful and inviting. An excellent place to start incorporating Autumnal decor in your home  is the entryway. Your entryway should set the 'mood' for the rest of your home. A table placed here is very handy  to arrange alternating decorative accents as the seasons  change around us. Even a small touch of cheerful Autumn color will elevate the seasonal feel in your home and welcome family and friends.


This little Fall vignette is warm and welcoming. Natural elements, the warm tones of burnished wood, tarnished silver with a touch of gold and an antique door hung horizontally provides you with a rustic backdrop. This Fall entryway is   inviting, interesting and really simple to achieve. 
For the home owner with a small entryway....that would be me....all hope is not lost. The small table, wire baskets, jack-be-little and the clock all say, "It's time for Fall y'all"!  
A salvaged window from an old factory creates a dramatic rustic statement. This large scale vintage piece has been turned into a mirror where it reflects the warm tones of Fall.
I LOVE! sheaves of wheat. A simple statement of Fall, what more do you need?
Pumpkins and candles covered in an assortment of seeds are oh so warm and a delight to behold.
There is nothing in this vignette that screams Fall. However on closer inspection you see burlap, dried moss, acorns and apples. Very subtle, very warm and very Fall.
The old rustic chest topped with Fall flowers, ladder back chair, duck and antique clock convey Fall in an understated way.
This entryway incorporates warm hues like gold, orange, and deep browns. The use of Fall foliage, candles, in-season fruit and iconic Fall plants like gourds and Indian corn adds life and natural color to this design.
This ever so small touch of Fall color makes a large impression...I LOVE IT!
GREAT chest in this entryway. The vase is a little modern looking for me, but it just might be your warm cup of TEA!
Wreaths are no longer just for the front door. These beautiful wreaths, pumpkins and gourds  are.......FALL!
Lastly, but definitely NOT the least, is this sweet little birdcage filled with Fall foliage, jack-be-littles and gourds. I will tell you a secret....ssshhhh....You can buy this pretty little birdcage from Pottery Barn for $699.99, OR...get to your closest Hobby Lobby and purchase the exact same birdcage on sale for $19.99. Granted it is not filled with foliage, pumpkins and gourds, but a quick trip to your local farmer's market or green grocer will fix that. I made one for my kitchen table and it's just beautiful! I saved $650.00, that is just freakin-mind boggling!

I hope you have been inspired by a few pictures and will head out to buy a pumpkin or sheave of wheat to warm up your entryway for Fall.......
