Last week we explored some great front door inspiration for your home and how to select a front door color suitable for your home’s exterior design. This week, we’re going to look at how you can accessorize your entry with our favorite Spring wreaths and outdoor accessories!
Once you have decided on a new front door color or design, it’s important to explore other ways in which you can accessorize to tie everything together. Our favorite way is by adding seasonal wreaths. Traditionally these are used over the Christmas period, but wreaths are a beautiful supplement to your front door throughout the year… not just in December! In addition to wreaths, having a welcoming outdoor mat is key. Not only because it’s practical, but for added aesthetical reasons too.
We have gathered our favorite Spring door wreaths, outdoor mats, and accessories. Are you ready to dive in?
Keep it Seasonal
Consider changing your front door wreath for each season. This helps to continually add interest for passersby, and keeps it joyful for yourself! Wreaths can easily be stored away when not in use as they often get delivered in large boxes.
We have gathered a few of our favorites for the Springtime below:
We love the analogous color scheme on the tulip wreath above. The wreath just breathes spring and the colors add so much energy to a home’s front door. Do you love tulips but the bright colors in the first wreath are a bit too much? We have a simpler solution. A more classic white and yellow tulip wreath may be just what you need!
We love using complementary colors—colors that are opposite from each other on the color wheel to add visual interest. These delicate flowers work incredibly well together and this wreath is perfect for a front door that needs a little more care and attention to detail.
When you’re considering a wreath for your front door, bright and bold colors may not be appropriate for the color door you have. You might also be looking for a simple style that is more of a delicate accent or something to complement your farmhouse design aesthetic. If that’s the case, flowers should be used sparingly. Opting for a simpler and cleaner wreath will do the job well!
We love natural materials such as olive branches, eucalyptus, cotton, and lavender for interest. Our favorite greener, and simpler wreaths:
Olive branch wreaths can be simple and elegant. When selecting one, look for one that is full and well made for a sophisticated look. We love the longer leaves on these wreaths and the accent of olives too. If you’re looking for a slightly different look, then a eucalyptus wreath would be a good option.
Eucalyptus wreaths are often more woody than olive branch wreaths and will show more of the stem that the leaves attach to. Dried eucalyptus wreaths are available to entice the senses, but faux eucalyptus wreaths are also available so you can get the look without the scent if you are sensitive.
Do you want something simple, but with color? Lavender wreaths are a top choice.
We love how the flowers create such a strong visual in this lavender wreath. Lavender wreaths are also available dried or faux which gives you lots of options for your front door. If the front door is your main entry, then we recommend a faux option because it will be more resilient.
A Warm Welcome
Not only will a wreath on your front door undoubtedly bring compliments from family and friends, but it also forms part of a wider welcome for your guests. In addition to these beautiful wreaths, having a welcoming doormat finishes off your entryway perfectly.
We have gathered our favorites below:
Fun geographic patterns are hip and perfect if you have a more modern taste with a less traditional home. This welcome mat is great for warmer months because of the pile height and material composition. It will be great for controlling dust and dirt. The rubber back will keep the mat in place.
This mat is great for the spring because the texture will attract debris from shoes to keep your house clean. The print on top is also super cute. A printed mat like this one is best for northern facing homes where the mat won’t have direct access to sunlight to prevent fading.
One of our favorite ways of accessorizing any doorstep is by adding some fresh plants, flowers or shrubs to decorative yet practical planters. These can be a stylish way to add fresh plants to any area of your home’s exterior.
Check out our favorite finds:
This planter not only has strong architectural lines, but it adds nice height to an outdoor space without being overbearing.
If you’re looking for height, this is great! Tall planters like this are perfect for homes that have tall covered porches or open porches because they won’t make the space feel cramped.
Hanging planters can be paired with lower planters to create visual interest around the entire entrance of a home.
