Looking for more fall inspiration? In case you missed it, we featured another inspiring article here on 1 Kindesign that we think you will enjoy for some fantastic outdoor decorating ideas: 40 Amazing fall-inspired front porch decorating ideas
Create a spooky porch setting by lighting your pathway with luminaries to draw visitors up to your front entryway. Lighted grapevine frames the front door, while faux bats and spiders hang near the porch lights, illuminating the spooky creatures. To help enhance your spooky ambiance, try affixing silhouettes to the interior of your windows. Created out of heavy black craft paper, you can make witches, ghosts, cats and bats.
Decorate your front door with a spooky spider window decal, which can be handcrafted using yellow cellophane and black construction paper (instructions on BHG) or purchased at an arts supply store such as JoAnne’s or Michaels.
Dress up a pumpkin by painting them with playful shapes and words. To begin with, you will need to apply masking tape to the areas you want left unpainted. Purchase some black spray paint and spray away! When its dry, remove the tape to see your unique design. The block lettering can be outlined and then filled in with crafts paint in black. If you want to add holes to your pumpkins to emit light, you will need a cup drill bit. To create a polka dot pumpkin, you will need to purchase a white pumpkin and add some black circle stickers. To finish off your pumpkin scene, try up-cycling a metal laundry tub, barrels or antique chairs for some added rustic flair and varying height.
Greet your visitors with a spooky spider web entryway mat!
Create a countdown sign for how many days are left till Halloween to create some excitement. This can be made out of old picket fence pieces or several wood boards nailed together. This sign uses small clip boards to keep numbers in place. An alternative idea is to get some chalkboard paint and paint a small area in a circle or square, or even in the shape of a pumpkin or bat. Use chalk to write the numbers down everyday.
To create this Halloween decorated scene, you can start by inviting guests to your front door with tall lanterns wrapped in cardstock that has been cut with spooky faces. Small pumpkins and gourds also accent the staircase. The pillars feature spooky planters with spider webs and ghosts are strung from the porch. Black spiderwebs can be crafted inexpensively with black tape. Another budget-friendly idea is to wrap brooms with black and orange electrical tape.
These scary bats that decorate the front door are crafted from stiffened felt (can be found at Michaels). They are very DIY friendly, all you need to do is trace the shape onto a piece of felt. If you have a printer, be sure to print a template to make the process easier. Repeat several times till you have your desired effect! They can either be affixed to the exterior with black duct tape and hot glue the birds to the non-sticky side of the tape, or strung with invisible fishing line (which can also be used to hang skeletons or ghosts).
Welcome your trick-or-treaters by adding a monogram to your pumpkins, with the letter of your last name or H-for Halloween, F-for Fall. You can print the letter off your computer to use as a carving guide. TIP: The letters could also be traced onto a pumpkin and then painted if you did not wish to do any carving.
Frame your front doorway with some festive scarecrows topped with bottle gourds decorated with skeleton faces to add some spooktacular fun! The gourds have been speared with sticks and set into styrofoam blocks to keep their stability. Place them in urns decorated with small gourds and corn husks to complete the look.
If you have a bench on your front porch, why not decorate it with a life-sized skeleton sitting on it to greet visitors.

As fall is officially underway, it is time to start thinking about decorating your front porch by creating an inviting entryway to greet your guests. Display fall-themed decor around your front entryway with traditional favorites such as wreaths, garland, pumpkins and gourds, corn husks, hay bales and topiaries. Infuse in some personalized ideas such as a scarecrow (which can have a pumpkin as a head), adding vegetables such as kale or dried corn, a basket or barrel of apples, a wheel barrow full of various sized pumpkins, wooden or chalkboard signs (such as a welcome sign), twigs added into a pot (add mini lights to highlight), pinecones piled into a pot, your house number displayed on pumpkins, lanterns, green moss, and mini lights to accent. Add bursts of color with natural elements such as brightly colored yellow mums in rustic wooden baskets. Be sure to accent your steps with varying sized pumpkins or flowers, creating a nice visual interest. If you are looking for DIY ideas, we have plenty here to share with you, making your own wreath for your door can be a fun weekend project. Whatever your tastes are, we have put together a collection of fall-inspired front porches that will surely give you some amazing ideas that we think will help get you in the mood to decorate your entryway with some autumn touches! Enjoy!
Autumn is an amazing time of the year, when leaves start changing color and the air starts to feel crisp. It is a wonderful time to decorate your home and bring some magic to it. We love this time of year, how about you? What do you do in your home to decorate for the fall season, please share with us in the comments section below. Are you look for some further fall decorating ideas here on 1 Kindesign? Have a look at some past features:
Decorate your fall-inspired front porch with orange paper lanterns, a budget-friendly option to adding fall color. To re-create the image above for your own home, use smaller lanterns to attach to bamboo stakes with a light hued string. Place the lantern stakes into planters, big or small, on either side of your front door. Adding to the symmetry of the front entry, add heaps of various-sized pumpkins on either side of your doorway. If you really want to add a burst of color, string a larger sized lantern in the center of your entryway. Paper lanterns can be found at your local craft supply store, such as Michaels.
A trendy and festive idea is to affix your house number onto pumpkins to create a topiary in a barrel, basket or planter (use real or artificial, the benefit to the latter being that you can re-purpose next year!) In the image above, white pumpkins have been decorated with vintage style house numbers (however you can use orange pumpkins if that is your preference). The pumpkins have been threaded with a dowel so they won’t topple over and placed into a wooden basket (again so they won’t topple). Spanish moss has been used as the base for color and texture.
Your front porch can be dressed up with some elements that attract your guests attention. Various colored pumpkins and gourds decorate the ground. A wonderful idea is to add a beautiful basket to fill with these delectable harvest items. A planter with a leafy garden is topped with a lantern to illuminate the space during the evening. A leafy garland also frames the doorway and a harvest-themed wreath welcomes you in with its fall colors. A “Welcome” sign greets your visitors and adds another interesting visual element to the scene.
Pumpkins and gourds travel all the way up these steps, welcoming you to the front doorway.
Create a harvest-inspired front porch with cornstalks accenting the doorway. Replace out a traditional wreath with a hanging basket full of autumn foliage and berries to add color and cheer. A garland comprised of fall leaves and tiny pumpkins frames the entryway. Try adding some fall flowers to your porch, with some bright yellow mums.
Monogram a pumpkin with glitter, it can spell a word over four pumpkins such as “Fall” or it can be used for house numbers or just a letter, such as your family name.

An elegant white bathroom scheme can be a popular choice among homeowners, as the color is associated with clean, relaxing and bright, making your space an oasis of luxury. Some people find an all white space to be not their first choice when decorating any room in their home, since it can be stark and not very visually interesting. The most important thing to remember if you want to pull of the look is to pay careful attention to your material selection, especially when it comes to textures and sheen. You can also introduce beautiful accessories into an all-white color scheme, since you are pretty much working in a blank canvas. It can actually be an exciting challenge to create a visually interesting space working with a monochrome palette. We recommend that you add some patterned tiles, leafy plants, wood elements, or some warm neutral tones to offset the cool undertones. Enjoy the collection of images that we have put together for you with a few great tips along the way. Plus, get more bathroom ideas! Let us know in the comments section below: Does a white space look visually pleasing, or do you prefer more color in a bathroom?
We have featured other ideas here on 1 Kindesign for decorating your home in a white color scheme, have a look at some:

In the past we featured the stylish Corvi Wine Cooler by IntoConcrete, now we are delighted to inform you of their latest concrete design, IdéeAl Lamp Series. The light fixtures feature a timeless design that has been flawlessly finished in concrete and glass. The velvety exposed concrete base comes in three stunning shades, blue-gray, dark-gray, and light-gray. These handmade fixtures take their inspiration from turn-of-the-century lanterns and creating stunning art forms. The lamps come in the form of ceiling—Idéeal Ceiling Lamp and table fixtures—Idéeal Table Lamp, that creates an industrial chic aesthetic that would make your home ultra stylish. Created by by visionary concrete designer Clement Terreng, he explains that concrete is an incredible material to work with. “It can be hard like a stone yet appear fragile like porcelain. As we began to work with it, we quickly realized that its potential – to be formed, to be cast – may have no limits but ourselves.” We think these fixtures are super cool and would look great in just about any home decor scheme, we would love to see pictures of them in your home! What do you think, would you use these light fixtures in your home and if so, where would you put them?
These stylish light fixtures are a collaboration with Concrete Home Design and can be purchased on the home lifestyle store of IntoConcrete, with both the Idéeal Ceiling and Table Lamps priced at $500 a piece.
The inspiration for the lamps was very organic in nature. The designer was intrigued by the distinguishing shape of an onion and pared the form with retro 60’s glamour reflected in the set interior of a James Bond movie. The lamps evoke a classic silhouette of old enamel factory light fixture. The fixtures showcase an elegant concrete body affixed to a crystal glass diffuser, creating a modern twist on a classic style.
The designer also wanted a concrete table lamp that would be slender in nature, so he refined the fixture to all that was necessary, testing form and function.
IntoConcrete is an art, design and innovation group that is based in Chicago. Their principle goal is to offer cutting-edge products with quality craftsmanship and modern design in the form of concrete.

A show-stopping minimalist fireplace design in your living room will have a clean-lined aesthetic that is both visually pleasing and create a contemporary warmth. The furnishings that surrounds the fireplace should accent it, but also be inviting and comfortable to encourage friends and guests to sit down and enjoy the warmth and ambiance of a sleek fireplace design. Creating a statement piece in your living room involves selecting the right firebox that will fit in your design scheme and deciding on the intricasies that will complete the looks, such as hearth, surround, etc. When it comes to fireboxes, the current trend seems to be creating a flawless focal point with fire ribbons, which are flames produced by gas that are broad yet narrow. The aesthetic is contemporary but minimalist, replacing faux logs with rocks, sand or glass. The idea is a flickering flame rising out of one of the selected materials to add plenty of warmth and beauty to the space. Have a look through our collection of minimalist fireplace designs to be inspired to incorporate one into your living room design scheme.

Your living room design scheme should reflect your tastes and aesthetic, but be sure to keep it uncluttered and do not over-accessorize.

Invite the colors of fall into your home by infusing your living room with warmth and comfort that will look aesthetically stunning all year round. You can transition your living space towards fall decor by infusing it with more mocha, grey and beige hues, giving it that autumn feeling without losing the beautiful hues of summer. Try changing up your color palette with darker hues, which have an instant impact on the look and feel of a space. A simple way to adjust your color scheme is to add smaller accent pieces. Consider infusing your space with a few new pieces in hues of spicy autumn, such as pale yellow, soft pumpkin orange, green, chocolately brown, plum and deep crimson. Select pillows and throws that are easy to transition between seasons to help “fall it up”. Adding metallics to your design scheme is also a great idea. One idea for a nice pop of color is adding a silver crocodile skin tray (which can be found at places like Z Gallerie and Pier 1) to a chocolate hued ottoman to give a nice pop of shiny color. Fall is on its way, its time to add some simple decorating touches to your living room to make it cozy and welcoming. Have a look through our vast collection to get some ideas of your own. Have you started decorating your home yet for fall? Let us know which one of these spaces most inspires you to get the process started!
In the past we have featured here on 1 Kindesign several inspiring ways to infuse warmth into your living room, so in case you missed it, have a look: 43 Cozy and warm color schemes for your living room.
Nothing speaks fall more than a toasty fireplace roaring and plenty of fresh wood decorating your shelves or built-in niches. If you like the look of fresh wood to add some naturalness into your space, try just filling a basket and sit it next to your fireplace or sofa.
Lovely throughout the year, decorate in shades of pumpkin, rust, and maple red.
In this stunning living room, the designer infused soft pinks mixed with deep reds and purples, infusing life and color into an otherwise neutral space. This is a great example of how you can add autumn colors to change up the mood in your living room. Try swapping out pillows and throws that are in lightweight summer fabrics for more luxurious and plush velvety ones, rich in harvesty hues.
Karen from the blog, “The Graphics Fairy” was invited to participate in a Fall Home Tour with BHG a couple of years ago. In her living room she decided to go with more muted tones, adding a touch of flair with some silver accents, such as the large mercury glass pumpkin that is set on her coffee table. The rusty orb in the basket was sourced from Marshalls. The horse print hanging on the wall was also a new addition that comes out for the fall/winter season. Have a look at all the wonderful Fall additions that this crafty homeowner made throughout her home here.
This space is a bold example of the use of colors that are inspired by autumn, with saffron and scarlet. The striped area rug begins as the foundation for the scheme (another idea where you can do a simple switch of area rugs with the seasons, just roll up and store the one that is not in use). The saffron hued sofa helps to anchor the space, adding a comfortable and soothing aesthetic. A bold hue of scarlet has been paired to complement the sofa, as found in the armchair and ottoman. A basket with a throw is always a nice idea for storage and easy access, to help keep you warm on a chilly night. Adding plants and succulents adds some nature into the space…and what a great idea with decorating a tray with apples, as seen on top of the ottoman.

Decorating a stylish bedroom with a black and white theme has a timeless quality, creating a dramatic contrasting statement that is aesthetically pleasing. There is something very appealing about styling a bedroom with a black and white color combination. The simplicity of style and serene monochromatic palette creates a very inviting bedroom scheme, making you want to spend more time in this space enjoying your relaxing environment. This color scheme can work well in many different styles, from Art Deco, to modern and minimalist spaces and even traditional, there are just so many options. A black and white themed bedroom can look amazing when it is combined with varying shades of gray. You can paint your walls in all black, all white or a combination of both, as seen in the image above. If you are looking for a more sophisticated look, such as a hotel style aesthetic, consider painting your walls in a bright white as a pared down backdrop. Select silky bed linens and plush pillows and add some black silk cushions. To finish the look, add black night tables and lampshades, adding drama and style. A black and white would also go great in a guest bedroom, since it is gender neutral, it would fit both masculine or feminine tastes. Keep the walls white and add some additional style by hanging a large mirror, creating a sense of spaciousness and reflect natural light. Pair this decor with some pinstriped bed linens and sumptuous velvety cushions in black.
If you are looking to go more minimal with your monochromatic style, try adding a platform bed for some drama. Add some clean white bed linens and keep accessories pared down. If you really want to keep the space looking clean lined, be sure to purchase a bed that has concealed storage in its frame. Finally, if you want to keep the space more traditional, try adding pops of bright accent colors. Add a custom headboard and a black floor lamp, completing the look. Have a look through the image gallery below to see how amazing black and white bedrooms look! Let us know which one is your favorite in the comments section below.
