It’s the first thing you see when you arrive home each day—so why not give your front door just as much attention as you do the rest of your space? Even if you don’t have a large porch, the right front door decor can make the entryway of your home look deliberate and stylish.

While holiday-themed front door decor is always a fun option (hello, fall wreaths), you don’t always have to go for seasonal-specific decorations when it comes to the exterior of your home. Sure, little nods to the time of year—through your color palette or choice of decorative foliage—can be a gorgeous addition to your doorscape, but you can also opt for classic, year-round adornments.

Your front door decorating style should, however, fall in line with your personal style. Decorating the outside of your home is actually pretty similar to decorating the inside—choose the accents that speak most to you, and you’ll wind up with a front door that’s perfectly you. But if you need a little guidance to get there, never fear: Havenly designer Kelsey Fischer has put together four totally-chic front door decor ideas to make your home’s exterior look just as great as what’s inside.

Front Door Decor Ideas: Classic Contrast

Faux Fern Wreath // Plastic Urn Planter // Windowpane Jute Doormat // Manor Glass and Iron Sconce// Wall Mailbox // Faux Boxwood Topiary // Malta Lanterns

High-contrast elements can create balance while giving your front door a bold, classic look. Opt for decorative elements like statement-making topiaries, and bring in black accents with your planters, porch light, and mailbox. A simple doormat in a natural texture ties it all together.

Front Door Decor Ideas: Cottage Modern

Jo Gray Pedestal Planter // Crosby Teak Wood Lanterns // Faux Potted Rubber Tree // Long Beach Lantern // Dried Flax Wreath // Brass Door Knocker // Colby Jute Door Mat

Love the cottagecore trend but want to make it feel a little more elevated? Mix together streamlined silhouettes and interesting textures to create a look that’s a good mix of modern and traditional. Brass accents and warm-toned foliage make this style look especially great in autumn—but it works just as well year-round. 

Front Door Decor Ideas: Modern Luxe

Flatform Cement Planter // Olive Cone Topiary // Bonjour Doormat // Portside Metal Lantern // Gold Leaf Wreath 

If you love the glamorous, modern look that CB2 is known for, go for modern silhouettes (like sculptural planters) and high-contrast accessories (like matte black lanterns). Interesting brass accents, like this wreath and porch light, play up the luxurious feel.

Front Door Decor Ideas: Pacific Natural

Striped Jute Mat //  Havana Hurricane Lamp // Wabi Sand Fiberstone Planter // Walker Tapered Sconce //  Faux King Palm // Faux Magnolia Wreath // Beakman Door Knocker 

You don’t have to decorate with seashells to create a breezy coastal vibe. Instead, opt for organic textures and light-toned decorations, paired with lush green foliage. These rattan hurricane lamps add a boho feel, while the sand-colored planters add a balanced, minimal touch.
