Keeping The Fall Decor Simple In My Foyer

| | |

Welcome to fall at Worthing Court – I’m excited to invite you into my home!  This time of year you’ll find the fall decor in my foyer to be cheery and welcoming.  Nothing fussy, overdone or complicated allowed!

I’ve used a variety of colors for the fall decor in the entryway this year.  Since the foyer sets the tone for the rest of the house, I’ve included beautiful colors in this space that you’ll see in other rooms too.  Plus there is a video (find it down below) of the entire space, taking a peek into some of my other rooms to help it all make sense.

Colorful Fall Decor

I don’t have traditional fall colors or blue hydrangeas in every room, but those colors can be found in some of the rooms, so the foyer is a good space to tie it all together.  Besides – name a color that doesn’t look awesome with blue and green hydrangeas!! 😀

The DIY fall wreath hanging on the mirror is just about the easiest thing in the world to make!  It consists of four fall picks that are literally wedged into the branches of a grapevine wreath and then fluffed a bit.  That’s it!  I made sure that the picks I chose contained all of the elements that I wanted to include – pumpkins, berries, fall leaves and feathers.

The fall decor on the chest may be showing off a bounty of pumpkins, but I’ve kept the rest of the foyer very, very simple.  Instead of loading down the board and batten wall with all the things, I only added a couple of touches for fall.  Keeping the fall decor easy and simple throughout my home was my mantra this year.

My foyer is an awkwardly shaped, difficult area to photograph that isn’t very large, so I have to show you small snippets.  To make matters even more complicated – in true ‘keeping it real’ fashion – the steps themselves were piled with things that needed to be taken upstairs, so I had to keep them out of the photos.  Oops.

When you enter our home through the front door, both the office and our family room are right off of the foyer and then the dining room opens right off of the home office.  That’s why it’s so important for me to make sure that I use colors in the entryway that will tie the fall decorations throughout the rest of the house together.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit today!  You might want to take a tour of how I decorated my foyer for fall last year too!

  1. Suzy,
    I think I figured out my foyer just seeing your hutch. Your southern accent makes your videos so warm! laura

    1. So glad you found some inspiration, Laura. I think I sound like such a hick! 😀

  2. Love your farmhouse style. It’s hard to incorporate color in this style but you do it beautifully. Thanks for sharing.


    1. Thank you, Lori! I agree with you about the difficulty of incorporating color into farmhouse style because so much of what I see is neutral, neutral, neutral. I’ve often thought about writing a blog post titled something like, “Is Color Allowed In Farmhouse Style?”. 😀

      1. I love the farmhouse style but I also love color and I have been thinking about painting my yellow walls but just can’t do it. When we bought our home in the 80’s every wall was white with dark stained trim and I HATED it. I just keep thinking that if I paint them the farmhouse style with be out of style and I’ll be back to where I started lol. I think for me it’s going to br more about incorporating texture and some softer colors. We’ll see. Thanks for you inspiration. Lori

  3. How did you hang the wreath in front of the mirror? I have a mirror that could use the same treatment.

    1. Command hooks are a lifesaver!!! I use them all the time in my travel trailer and anywhere else I can’t use mails or hooks.

    2. Hi Carol. The wreath is hanging from a suction cup hook that is attached to the mirror. 😀

  4. I Love all of your posts, they are so inspiring! I love the way you incorporate colors and patterns as well! Can you tell me the color of your small dresser and mirror in the foyer and your wall color? I am going to paint a dresser and mirror in my entry area and I really like how your area looks! Thank you.

    1. Hi Karen. The chest is painted with Sherwin Williams Network Gray. I didn’t paint the mirror – it came that color, but it pretty much matches the chest. My wall color is Sherwin Williams Accessible Beige. 😀

  5. It is still 80 where I live (Maryland!) but your video gave me the push I needed to start my fall decorating! LOVE the elegant farmhouse neutral colors you use! Peg

    1. Thank you so much, Peg. Have fun decorating!

    Enjoyed your tour! So, an guessing the hydrangeas in the bag are real? Central Texas is just too darn got to grow them, as much as I love them. Need to know 2 things: what is your source for days florals like your wreath picks, and please tell me the name/color of that paint you’ve used in your desk and dining room furniture. Thanks!

    1. Hi Marcy. Yup – those hydrangeas are straight off of the bushes in my backyard. I dried them before using them though. This is the first year that they’ve ever bloomed for me! I find most of my florals and picks at Hobby Lobby and sometimes at Michael’s. My local Hobby Lobby has a much larger selection than Michael’s. You can read all about the paint that I used on my desk and on my dining room furniture in this blog post:

  7. Warm & inviting! Inspirational!

    I think I’d be tempted to place some small pumpkins on the edge of the stairs…but I like the subtle hints you gave to the rest of the house decor.

    1. Hi Gail. I love that idea, but I think my dogs would make mincemeat out of them! 😀

    Your dogs sound like mine.I had a big bee skep out on our front porch not too long after we got him but he proceeded to take it off porch to eat it and generally massacre it. Had gotten it on sale at HL but he decided the front yard needed to be strewed with it. I wasn’t too hhappy with him but couldn’t very well punish him as I left the skep out on the porch table so he thought was ok. I lost a few things not long after we got him. He’s a border collie/black lab, about 70 lbs. & almost 10 yrs.old now,he had just turned 1 when we got him. He’s really a good dog, very sweet and affectionate.He had been abused,got him thru an adoption fair at Pet Smart,he’d been in 4 other shelters in U/t before we got him. He’s alot more mellow in his old age, lol.

    1. Oh, those little furbabies can sure be little scamps! Yours sounds precious! I guess that getting older makes us all more mellow – right? haha

    I love your style and your warm personality- I always look forward to your posts! thank you for allowing us into your lovely home!

    1. Thank you so much, Robyn. You so sweet to say that!

  10. The last photo at the end of this post, I’m interested in finding out where I might purchase the tall basket setting beside the gray chest and the basket with the pumpkin floral arrangement.. Love your post and wish I had your decorating skills. As much as I try I can’t even copy them! Awaiting your reply. Martha

    1. Hi Martha. You’re so sweet to say that! I found that basket several years ago at a local home decor shop. I’m sorry that I don’t have a source for one.

    2. Hi Martha. I’m sorry for taking so long to reply – I just found out that there was a technical issue on the backend of my blog that was preventing me from seeing comments. I found that basket at a local decor shop in Wilmington, NC.
