2 ways to decorate your front porch in the winter

These porches set for enjoying the wintry view prove that a cozy hangout doesn’t have to take place indoors

Give your home some serious curb appeal over the frosty months of the year with bright red or navy accents. Here are two ways to add wintry style to your front porch.

Classic Red

Surrounded by original brickwork and framed in black, the red front door of this Toronto home takes centre stage. The bright hue is proudly Canadian and, when paired with brushed nickel hardware, takes on a modern look. A garland graces the porch railings and is met by a tall planter at the bottom of the stairs – it’s lush and wonderfully stylish.

When the door makes a statement on its own, a subdued adornment is the way to go. A rustic twig wreath embellished with playful plaid ribbon enhances the stoop’s wintry style and adds whimsy without clashing or taking over.

Enjoy the great outdoors from your new cozy spot by bundling up on classically rustic Muskoka chairs and sipping delicious hot chocolate. This sweet presentation is utterly tempting for kids and adults alike. Mini marshmallows, anyone?

Canadiana-themed toss cushions on Muskoka chairs offer a playful nod to our nation. A carefree gathering of winter greens arranged in a folksy scarlet bucket makes for a country-chic display.

 

Sophisticated Navy

A fresh lick of paint and a mix of greenery spruce up this elegant porch. This home’s facade has an effortlessly polished aesthetic, with a dark blue front door and a denim-hued porch, as well as clay-toned bricks that provide a tasteful colour contrast. An evergreen garland draped along the railing provides texture.

The dreary days of winter leave many trees and bushes bare, so getting creative with evergreens is a must. Here, two wreaths set the scene. A trim boxwood one on the front door and a lush cedar version on the window draw the eye upward. The greenery of each wreath is different, but their looks are tied together by the same green ribbons.

Candied oranges and a deliciously scented candle set a warm fragrant tone for lounging outdoors on a crisp afternoon or evening.

A metal flour tin full of cut branches and sprigs lends an industrial vibe amid an abundance of natural materials. Classic wicker chairs adorned with mismatched toss cushions create an elegant and comfortable conversation area.
