Using fall themed pillows and blankets will also amplify the festive harvest feeling on your porch.
In addition to pillow and blankets, adding other fabrics to your porch can instantly cozy up your space.

Make Your Fall Porch Feel More Welcoming With Rustic Furniture & Decor
If you’re looking to make a big porch transformation this fall, consider changing up the entire style of your porch decor. A rustic style theme is a great choice for the fall season because it provides a natural sense of warmth and comfort. Setting up your porch in this style will instantly make your space look extra cozy and and welcoming.
One way to create a rustic fall porch is to change up your furniture. Typically with a rustic style, you want to have wooden furniture for a charming and rugged appearance. Display a wooden bench or rocking chairs, and a wooden side table to get the full rustic look on your porch. Make sure to pair this furniture with comfortable cushions and throw pillows for an added touch of warmth and coziness.
In addition to wooden furniture, you can also add to the rustic fall look with other decorations. Decorate with wooden accents, along with galvanized metal accents, to create that worn and weathered appearance. For instance, you can display metal lanterns on the porch steps, you can use a wooden box planter to display fall flowers, and you can lean a distressed wood fall sentiment sign on the porch. Having a strong mix of rustic decorations with fall themes can help you create that comfy harvest feeling in your outdoor space.

Layers are such a strong element of warmth in the fall season, and bringing that to your porch can amplify the coziness even more.
