No matter what you're in the mood for this season, this wreath inspiration is just what you need to up your curb appeal.
More Is More
Summer is all about abundance. We're talking about the abundance of sun, summer flowers, and fun. So when an entire season boasts a more-is-more attitude, a single wreath can feel underwhelming on double doors. Instead, treat your entryway to two times the blooms.
Line Up for Lavender
When all you want to do is lay in a lavender field in Provence, France, the best thing to do is bring the look to your front door. This lavender wreath duo is the next best thing—and is it just us, or can you almost smell the sweet scent billowing through the air?
Cue the Coordination
If your home boasts a colorful door, you're already well on your way to creating a summer-ready entrance. We love how this pink door is rivaled by the oversized pink flowers on the pair of wreaths. You've heard of tonal dressing—it's the same thing, but for your home's exterior.
Cue the Contrast
On the other hand, if you're not one for the matchy-matchy look, consider contrasting the color of your door with one that makes your entire home pop. This blue door with bright yellow flowers hung against it is liable to be seen from blocks down.
Keep Your Eye on Eucalyptus
A summer plant, silver dollar eucalyptus, adds plenty of color to a neutral door. Especially when it's real, it leaves a relaxing and refreshing scent behind to greet your guests as they walk into your home.
Use Flowers to Create a Color Scheme
One of the best parts about picking a flower for your front door wreath is blooms come in all hues and shades. Whether you have an existing color scheme on your front patio or you're looking to establish one, we love using florals to tie your palette all together.
Pretty in Peony
If your entryway boasts two large side-by-side doors, the only thing that's sure to match its extravagant feel is a pair of oversized wreaths oozing pink peonies in all shades.
A white wreath loaded with white tulips and a preppy bow looks beautiful and traditional. Perfect for Americana and coastal homes and for any décor enthusiast looking to make their front door look and feel cheery and inviting.
Think Outside the Circle
We've all heard the expression, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it," and while the circle-shaped wreath is gorgeous in its own right, this heart-shaped version is something to love. It gives this home traditional home a whimsical feel without feeling overly eclectic.
Seasonless and Effortless
Having a linen closet, basement, garage, or a shed loaded with wreaths in a rainbow of colors and a year's worth of seasons and holidays can be overwhelming. But when decorating for every occasion is non-negotiable, we suggest investing in one or a set of versatile wreaths and swapping out on-theme ribbons as needed. You'll always boast a festive feel without drowning in a sea of decorations.
Extend Your Stay
A wreath is by far the best addition you can make to your front door, but when you have a whole porch or stoop that's lacking attention, some pots filled with the coordinating blooms give your more curb appeal than you'll know what to do with.
Show Your Stripes
From Memorial Day to Labor Day, there's no better time to lean into the classic Americana feel. This porch boasts patriotism in the most gorgeous way, from the blue and white wreath to the American flag motifs.
Flowers are great, but have you decorated a summer wreath with peaches before? While it's best to work with the faux variety, this juicy alternative feels fresh and unapologetically summer. And yes, it looks just as adorable on the door of a playhouse as it does on your full-sized front door.
Why limit yourself to a single shade when there's a summer's worth of colorful blooms to work with. Instead, expand your color palette and open your wreath and porch up to a variety of hues which is sure to catch passersby's eyes every time.
White Tie Formal
When color isn't your thing, there are always ways to work summer into your décor while still keeping in line with your year-round style. This pair of greenery wreaths look right at home on this formal porch (and the white bows are the cherry on top), while still feeling welcoming and inviting.
Quite possibly the only thing we love more than a light robin's blue egg door is a wreath that celebrates and plays up the color with subtle coordination. The pink flowers pop off the light blue shade, while blue-green leaves tie the look together.
Another Door Opens
While the front-door wreath is non-negotiable, it also isn't the only door in your home. Spread the summer vibes in and around your home by hanging wreaths on alternate doors, like this cheerful garage entrance.
A Personal Touch
While most bows are a nice touch, one embroidered, vinyled, or stamped with your initials takes the art of wreath décor to the next level. Whether you're personalizing it for your own front door or making one to gift a friend, a monogrammed wreath is sure to stun guests every time.
If your home boasts a classic black and white color palette, it poses as the perfect neutral canvas to work with. This summer, slide in a pink rug and hang up a rose wreath to completely transform the look and feel of your front porch.
If you want your porch to look presentable at all times, but sifting through a storage container full of wreaths every season feels daunting, dress your front door up with simple greenery. It's appropriate all year round and looks gorgeous to boot.
