The Classic Christmas Look
Who else other than Pottery Barn would be able to replicate the iconic Christmas front porch? Their staff does such a great job staging their products. I love how they even have packages on the front steps, like presents were just delivered.

Toy Soldier & Candy Canes
If you are a fan of “Babes in Toyland”, chances are you’ll like this front porch featuring a giant toy soldier and classic glass ornaments. Okay, they may not be glass, but sure look like it. There are also some candy designs woven in and the red/light green color scheme makes it look even more vintage.

Christmas Candle Lanterns & Pine Cones
Better Homes and Gardens is another good source for Christmas inspiration. Here, the designer utilized the door’s tall, long lines and incorporated candle lanterns that mimic them. Pine cones and berries provide a nice rustic, earthy look that harken back to an older style of decorating.

Multidimensional Christmas Decor
The designer of this front porch really utilized its depth and varying architectural elements to create an eye-catching display. First, there’s the giant green garland with bows. Next, you’re drawn in to the arch of flowers and ribbons. Then, the light fixtures. Finally, your eyes rest on the poinsettias on the doors. Multidimenional and charming.

Chalkboards are all the craze right now. DIYers are using chalkboard paint on everything from walls to furniture. It’s even making its way onto front porches for Christmas. Here, the chalkboard is decorated with a Christmas phrase and paired with some rustic touches – firewood, a vintage sled, and lantern – to create a country feel.
