Gardner Village Blog Fall Entryway Look to Love
Tuesday Sep 6 2022

With this record-breaking heat, it might seem like fall is months off, but it’s actually just a couple of weeks away. To help you plan for the fast-approaching autumn, our friends at CF Home Furniture & Design and Down to Earth are here to prove that…

The Mat is Where It’s At!

Whether you’re welcoming costumed cuties or fall friends and family, a stylish door mat display is just the trick for warming up your entryway. Take a look at how you can mix and match mat styles to create ideas for September through November, as well as scary-good looks for October. 


1. A Fall Feeling

Just as you'd layer a sweater this time of year, now's a great time to add not one but two door mats. A look we love is a stylish woven rug for a pop of color, topped with a durable indoor/outdoor mat, perfect for catching the dirt.

2. A Halloween Scene

Look how easy it is to add a little spook to your cute with a new top mat and an added pumpkin.

3. A Warm Welcome

If you have any sort of seating in your entryway, a seasonal accent pillow will really complete your entryway elegance.

1. A Fall Feeling

Don't make this a one-sided affair. Capture the same look outside by layering a woven mat with a durable top mat. 

NOTE: This pumpkin will easily work for Fall AND Halloween. Tricky!

2. A Halloween Scene

No tricks here. Simply swap your top and add a pumpkin to go from September vibes to a Halloween dream.

TIP: Even a regular welcome mat can feel Hallween ready when paired with some friendly pumpkins and a black/orange color scheme.

3. A Warm Welcome

If you have a covered porch and some outdoor seating, an accent pillow is a fab way to further dress up the space.

This particular pillow is double sided. Simply flip it over to go from one occasion to the next.

BONUS IDEA: Simply spin that adorable white ghost pumpkin around and he can do a little disappearing act in the off season (when it's not Halloween). 


Don't feel as if you have to go symmetrical or completely linear with your look. Feel free to take that straight line for a slight curve and add some extra character.
