Hello, all! Hope you’re having a great week and staying warm as the cool weather is upon us. In the spirit of staying warm, let’s chat about our front door. What is currently placed at your front door that welcomes your family and friends? Does it reflect your personality and style? How often do you update this space? I love to refresh my front entryway to reflect every season throughout the year. How about you?
I recently wrote about layers and texture as a fall home trend, and an entryway is the perfect space to add some texture and layer various elements such as a simple wreath, a nice pot of flowers and of course, layered doormats! Layered doormat is a trend that is here to stay. We’ve seen this used by many interior designers to create a space of interest and depth, and I personally love what it means for fall decorating.

I have rounded up some of my favorite layered doormat combinations. But before we dive in, here are a few tips to help you choose the perfect mats to use when creating layered mat combinations for your front entryway.
You then want to choose a coordinating top mat that reflects your personality and fits with the season. My favorite places to get affordable decorative doormats are Target and Kirkland’s. They have a nice collection that can accommodate anyone’s style. You will find these doormats in sizes of 1.5’ x 2.5’ (18” x 30”) or 2’ x 3’ (24” x 36”).

You can also get a plain doormat and add a unique wording or pattern by following this tutorial. I might attempt to DIY a plain doormat in the future. If I do, I will share with you all the details.
You’ll want to get an outdoor rug or an indoor/outdoor rug. This type of rug withstands foot traffic all year round and will not require you to change it every season if you decide not to. To keep this rug clean requires just a power wash.

You will also need to pay attention to the rug’s size. You do not want to choose one that will be smaller than your top mat. I recommend a rug size of 2.5’ x 4’ (30” x 48”) or larger, but at most 3’ x 5’ (36” x 60”).
Now let’s get into some of my favorite combinations. Check it out and tell me what you think.

This year I have been leaning toward a minimalist style for our home. I love a modern, casual look and I’m continuously inspired by Studio McGee.
Our front door is styled simple and refreshing for all seasons. I added a greenery wreath that can be used all year round. I’m using the same wreath for the holidays and adding fairy lights to embrace the holiday glow.
I also love styling with lanterns coupled with LED candles that operate with a timer, programmed to turn on at dusk and turn off automatically in an hour or two. In place of lanterns, you can style your entryway with unfilled outdoor planters of various heights or a mix of a plant and planters.
