Transitioning With the Seasons: Our Cozy Fall Porch Makeover

Even as the temperatures begin to drop here in NC, we're still finding ourselves spending just as much time on our covered porch. This is where we end our nights over a meal or a glass of wine and where we spend our long weekend mornings. As our outdoor space has doubled as a second living area, it was important to refresh the decor with the changing of the seasons. Scroll below to see how I transformed our outdoor living area from summer to fall!
It's important to note that the changing of the seasons doesn't mean you need to start fresh with a new design. There are a few simple swaps you can make to transition your summertime seating area to a cozy and relaxing fall retreat.
 Our Nantucket Rattan Collection features classic and timeless rattan perfect for coast or city from New England to Florida. Beautiful double pole rattan meets a unique weaving pattern handcrafted at our family factories. She's perfectly at home whether you're entertaining indoors or out (suitable for covered or screened in porch only). 
To transition for fall, I switched out our light blue cushion casings for a classic emerald green gingham print (coming to our fabric line shortly!) This small change quickly transformed our living area and set the tone for the rest of the fall decor to follow! We kept our grounding elements like our natural jute rug and white wicker lamps as they served as functional & versatile pieces that could easily carry us over from season to season.
Another easy way to transition with the seasons is to add in seasonal greenery & blooms. I swapped out our blue & white hydrangeas for a few colorful mums which look stunning in our emerald glazed planters
And if you know me, you know I love a pumpkin! I covered our porch and front steps with a slew of colorful pumpkins and gourds in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Lastly, we traded in our turkish towels for our super-soft herringbone and buffalo check throws. They are perfect for cozying up with on a crisp fall night and are available in all of our favorite colors.
And in case you missed it, we've shared a few entertaining tips in the age of COVID, including a step-by-step guide to these individual charcuterie cones. If you're in need of an appetizer idea for your next dinner party, look no further!  Cheers to the changing of the seasons and savoring special moments spent at home!
