No matter the size of the foyer or entryway into your home I have some pretty fall foyer decorating ideas for you! Our foyers are the first things guests and family see when they step inside our front door so let’s make that space welcoming and pretty with a little bit of seasonal decor!
I’ve gotten so many comments and emails about my fall foyer this year I thought I’d break down how I decorated our foyer and share lots of tips for making your foyer a little taste of the prettiness to expect in the rest of your home.
Our foyer is l-o-n-g! Twenty-two feet long!
Listen, friend! I think most homes have a challenge when it comes to the foyer.
You can see a better image of just how long the foyer is HERE.
Some foyers are too small and some are too narrow and some, like mine, are too long!
If you have an issue with the configuration of your foyer now is the time to take a good look at it and try to image ways to make it work for you!
My solution was to create a welcoming area just inside the door and then to use the end of the foyer as part of our great room space.
THINK ABOUT FUNCTION FIRST
I know we are decorating for fall and that is certainly the fun part, but let’s think of creating a pretty and functional space first.
So, before all the amazing fall foyer decorating ideas we need to be practical!
Here are the basics for decorating a foyer. Not every foyer can include every item. You will have to decide what works best in your home.
Think about adding these things to your foyer…
- add a table, buffet, or chest to your foyer
- a mirror
- art for the walls
- think about providing a place to sit down like a chair or bench
- include some type of hanger for coats, purses, bags, etc.
- somewhere to put your keys
- add something to make guests feel welcome
Create a cohesive look by using the same colors and style in the foyer as the rest of your home.
FALL FOYER DECORATING IDEAS
Here are some easy to do decorating suggestions when it comes to adding a bit of fall to your foyer…
- a little bit of fall decor goes a long way
- function always trumps fall decor
- use the same fall elements and colors that you use in the rest of your home
- natural fall things are best
In our fall home this year white pumpkins were the stars! So I added just one little white pumpkin on a wood round to the foyer bench.
I also used “blond” faux leaves in a wreath hanging on the vertical coat hanger and in the basket on the floor.
USE COZY TEXTILE FOR FALL
One of the best fall foyer decorating ideas is to use pretty fall textiles! Great fall colors, nubby textures and soft materials.
Think about using pillows on a chair or bench. Also, I fall quilts would look amazing folded neatly on top of one another on a chair or bench too!
Use what you have to create a beautiful fall welcome in your foyer.
