Oh sweet puppies, you had me at hello! Welcome everyone to our yellow and green fall porch! I’m so glad you stopped by. Pull up a rocker, a pumpkin-spiced something or another, and feel free to take a look around. I’m glad you stopped by!
Every season, my front porch is the most featured “room” of my home. My BENJAMIN MOORE WYTHE BLUE door (yes, I’m yelling right now) has become a bit iconic across Pinterest and Instagram. “What color is your front door?” is the most frequently asked paint color question I get asked (daily). Hey, Benjamin Moore, you should really be paying me royalties for all the gallons of Wythe Blue I’ve sold on your behalf. 😜 It’s a truly gorgeous color, and I still love it after all these years.

It can be tricky reinventing the same space season after season, but I do love the challenge. This year, I had planned on going with a very traditional color scheme but truth be told I just don’t love the color orange. Then I thought I might do a green and white palette to mimic my fall interior, but that was looking very flat and boring. When I came across these bumpy, yellow, pear-shaped gourds at the grocery store, they spoke to me. Maybe it’s because I’m pear-shaped! 😂 I just loved them and decided that yellow, green, and white would be perfect.
For those of you new here, my house is an urban row home and is set up quite high off the ground. To take pictures of my porch, I have to stand at the top of an 8-foot ladder, in a tree, on a public city sidewalk. 😳 At least one lady who walked around my ladder shook her head at me as I was rearranging tree branches around my camera to get this shot for you. Oh the crazy things bloggers do! We are admittedly a weird bunch, but we love to share our decorating ideas and inspiration with you. And if that means climbing into a wet tree on a public sidewalk, well so be it!! You all are worth it!
I’m a huge fan of interesting door decor and am always thinking of new things to create for the door each season. I get tired of wreaths on the door, so this year thought it would be fun to create something with a wood slice. I’ll have a tutorial on how I created this beauty up on the blog in a few days! It was very easy, and I love the way it turned out.
Thankful and blessed! Yes I am!
I kept the rest of the porch fairly simple with a cozy plaid throw, a crate full of pumpkins, and of course my white rain boots. I sneak these boots into all of my seasonal shoots. They’ve been with me since I started the blog 9 years ago.
And of course, let’s not forget my furry accessory! Eowyn was insistent on being in this picture and wouldn’t go back in the house. She is such a cutie!
Here are just a few more beauty shots because I can’t resist!
If you’re wondering what’s just beyond the door, next week I’ll be sharing some mudroom and entryway tips with you and showing off some cute finds from Birch Lane.
