Did you know that the color of your front door has meaning? If your front door is white, is tells your friends and neighbors that you are clean and organized. A red door says you are a welcoming neighbor, while a black door symbolizes sophistication and authority. And a light brown door means you are warm and reliable. Who knew? And since the front door area is the first thing family, friends and neighbors catch sight of, I think it’s time to up your curb appeal with some festive, fall decor. And if you aren’t feeling the autumn vibes yet, just take a look at some of our favorite fall decor pieces to enhance the beauty of your front door!

Fall Decor: Wreathes
Nothing dresses up a front door like a pretty wreath. And like other decorations, they are so easy to interchange with the season to update your look. A fall wreath can come in many different varieties from orange and gold hues to life like maple leaves. And if you like to keep things more simple, you can easily add a burlap ribbon to a classic boxwood wreath and there you have it! Instant fall!
Fall Decor: Doormats

But I know that is what they are there for, they greet your guests! So why not invite your family and friends in with a new fall doormat. It could offer a cute message or pretty fall foliage. This year we have seen the double doormat to be trending. The more layers the better!

Lanterns may be an all year round decor piece but when the sun starts to set earlier and there is a chill to the air, an outdoor lantern placed door side adds such a nice touch to your front entry way.
