We are loving fall colors!
I think getting our door ready for Halloween might be my favorite! This year, paining it India Yellow by Farrow & Ball made it even easier! As tempted as I was to use bright orange traditional pumpkins, I decided to go a little more earthy and use Fairy Tale pumpkins. I continue to use my galvanized planters as I did at our old house. I’m mixing mums with my existing boxwoods and adding in a dip-dyed stool so that’s it’s not too overly symmetrical. Not that I don’t love symmetry, but there’s little chance of getting two stacks of fairy tale pumpkins that match! At least not without several more stops at Trader Joe’s!
A very simple Halloween craft
I made this candy corn door stop that I will use again this Halloween. We live in a neighborhood with sidewalks and no hills. The homes were built in the 1920s with front porches making it the ideal place to trick~or~treat. It reminds me of when I was growing up! When I look out at the street and there are dozens of kids and parents going door to door and there’s a tangible feeling of excitement for a few short hours on Halloween in our neighborhood. It makes me so happy and I am sure to have plenty of candy!

The Side Door
Our side door is the first thing you see when you pull into the driveway…even though the door leads to the basement of our 1920 cottage, I like to make every area beautiful!
I love a door basket filled with foraged flowers or evergreen clippings
And we can’t forget about the back door!
Everything your porch or entryway needs for curb appeal
These are a few of my favorite things and it’s really all you need to create the perfect curb appeal. This style leans more cottage/traditional, but the elements are here for curb appeal in any style. You basically need lighting, planters, house numbers, a mailbox, a doormat, and great hardware!
