Ahhh my screened porch…it’s my favorite room in my home! It’s divided into two zones – a cozy seating area and a dining area. Today I want to share with you a few changes that I’ve made to the seating area for fall. As usual, I made some things and I bought some things on clearance to freshen up this space. So it was all very budget friendly!

First thing I do every fall is to move the seating around. We love to watch the varied birds in our yard (we’re a Certified Wildlife Habitat), so I like to move the chairs around so we can see the different birdfeeders and birdbaths that we have set up. In the summer the foliage is so lush we really can’t see from up here, but we have an excellent view of the feeders once the trees lose their leaves.
For summer the colors I used in the porch were mainly greens and blues. You can see it here. For fall I kept the green and added some brown. I was able to get a few new pillows on clearance at Home Depot. I showed you how to make the fall banner here.
Most of the furniture is faux wicker so I don’t have to worry about it falling apart outside. I just give it a good scrubbing and hosing at the beginning of every summer and it’s good to go!
I was lucking that basically all summer stuff went on clearance at the end of August beginning of September! I was able to pick up this white lantern and Threshold candle at Target for practically nothing.
This is my seat! We like to have our coffee out here in the mornings. It’s been pretty nippy lately (well… 50’s is nippy to us)! Sometimes I need to put on some socks AND have the throw. We’re thinking of getting one of those tabletop propane heaters because we really do love being out here in the morning. It’s like living in the country (almost). It’s so quiet and all you hear are the birds chirping, we turn on the fountain sometimes too…heaven! The binoculars are for bird watching.
This is a fun little plant stand! I have some mums in galvanized buckets from Home Depot on top. One which I added a transfer to this summer.
The bottom shelf is full of fun little things! Like my pumpkin topiary, a little squirrel silhouette I drew on a piece of picket fencing, the pumpkin patch sign in the back I’ve had forever, the bucket with the number is from Big Lots (during the summer they don’t have it any more). The tin seeds and tools carrier is one I got at Goodwill years ago.
I made this burlap pillow with the leaf and the word “fall”.
I hope you enjoyed seeing the fall changes that I made to our cozy seating area in the porch!

Very pretty! We love sitting out on our porch and deck for weekend morning coffee. There is a nip in the air, but not too much yet. I love all of your fall touches!
Penny @ The Comforts of Home says
Your porch looks very cozy, all decked out for fall! I love leaf pillow that you made.
Oh my goodness, gracious…what a beautiful room, outdoors, but in, cool, but cozy, with brilliant autumn flair and fun! I am in love with those galvanized buckets and the way you customized them! You are surrounded by lovely views, but even if you didn’t have those, I would sit here just to stare at those fiery mums and sip on fresh, hot coffee!

OH SO BEAUTIFUL! I love your sweet porch! It is so welcoming:) Have a blessed day dear Manuela, HUGS!
It looks great! It would be my go to spot, if I lived in your house!
Love your burlap pillow!
Mimi Sue says
So pretty Manuela! I’ve been wondering if we could screen our back porch so that we’d have a mostly bug free space. Yours is inspiring. Mimi
Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions says
Very pretty, Manuela! I can see why you enjoy being out on your screened porch. It would be a lovely way to start your day. Seeing your porch has me missing the screened gazebo we had at our old house. We were also a certified Wildlife Habitat. I have put out a couple of bird feeders here so that I can enjoy seeing the birds, especially in the Winter months.
Such a pretty place to relax and enjoy the fresh air – I can see why your family enjoys it so much.
Have a great week.
Hi Manuela. I always love how change everything each season. I love your seating area and it really sounds so very nice. Love it! Hope you are doing well. Happy Autumn to you. Take care.
What a beautiful porch and decor! We have white wicker furniture just like yours on our patio, but unfortunately, no screened porch or four season room or anything like that where we can use it in the colder months.
Kathleen Grace says
I adore your porch in every season! What a dreamy place to watch wildlife and birds and enjoy your morning coffee together:>)
Marianne L says
Your porch is beautiful, Manuela. Thanks for some great ideas for my (presently bare) patio!
Brenda Kula-Pruitt says
I adore that screened in porch of yours. I’d never want to move. It would be like being up in a tree house. It is beautiful!

I love your gardens, your porch your place, period! 🙂 This porch is beyond cozy : )
I just love your porch! So many good ideas too. We have a porch, but I usually sit on the deck, so I sometimes forget to keep it looking it’s best. After seeing yours, I will have to!
Manuela your porch looks gorgeous all dressed for fall. Love the mums in the galvanized buckets and that pillow is perfect.
Manuela, I love porch sitting and bird watching! Your porch is a beautiful outdoor room! I’d be out there as much as possible. One of those table-top propane heaters would be perfect. The best part, it’s screened in. I had some estimates this summer on having ours screened in but the price was astronomical! Wish we would have had the roof built like yours from the start. Love all the clearance items you were able to find.
Question? I mentioned you in a blog post for my bathroom update. I purchased a sign from castles and cottages and couldn’t find the post on your blog where you talked about your sign. It was gorgeous and you put it in your kitchen.

I never know if you get the comments I leave on your blog because nothing comes up after I press post. I don’t see the comment and and don’t see a moderation message. I know I left a comment on you photo shoot post but I don’t see it and I just left a comment on your recent garden post (very cute btw) but I don’t see it.
Donna Wilkes says
Your porch is so warm and welcoming. If I came over one morning, it might be a bit hard to get me to leave.
What a wonderful spot to relax! My favorite part is the tray with the cabbage and mini pumpkin stack!
Corinna Ashley says
Oh my gosh, this is such a beautiful space. Swoon! I hope I have a space like this one day!

Pamela Gordon says
I love your sunroom porch in any season, Manuela. It’s my dream to have one to decorate! 🙂 The colours you chose are perfect and you have some really cute decorations around. I’d really enjoy sitting on your wicker chaise and enjoying a cup of tea and listening to the birds too! Pamela
Ruth @ Living Well Spending Less says
WOW. Your fall front porch is perfection. It looks so cozy and inviting, I love it. I love the white mixed in with the beautiful Autumn colors. You did a wonderful job decorating it and setting everything up. It’s dreamy. Thank you for linking up to Thrifty Thursday.
Your fall porch looks dreamy!
Now that is lovely! One of my favorite combinations in clothing in fall is to pair green and brown. I think it’s perfect for our autumns. I love this combination on your porch. Thurs of this week it’s supposed to be 49(!) one morning. I think you’ll need a cozy sweater, socks and the throw as you sip your coffee.

No wonder it’s your favorite room in your home. If i had a porch as beautiful as yours, it would be my favorite spot too and i would definitely hang out all the time. I love how you set everything up. From the flowers on the centertable to your furnitures. Everything feels like a safe and lovely haven. I am really impressed!
