How to Style Your Holiday Front Door
Although the leaves are still falling and autumn is in full swing, the holiday season is right around the corner, and we’re already thinking about how to transition our homes to reflect the winter feelings we’re approaching.
When we think about seasonality, one of the first areas that come to mind is the front door. As the opening act of your space, the front door brings an opportunity to introduce your aesthetic and welcome a sense of festivity to your home.
Today, we’re sharing a few tried-and-true ways to style front doors for the holidays.
Here are a few of our favorite tips for a warm, winter welcome:
Tip #1: Set the scene with a doormat
Expressional doormats are the perfect way to add a little personality to your front door look. If you have extra space, add more texture by layering an indoor/outdoor mat.
Tip #2: Add Greenery
From the front door to the mantel, faux greenery adds color and texture to bring festive feelings into the home effortlessly. We curate our collection of wreaths, garlands, and trees to look just like the real thing, keeping their shape and dimension when you pull them out of the box for years to come.
Tip #3: Fill in the sides
Add dimension to the sides of your look with planter filled with greenery or other festive accents. We love styling wood in a pile or stacked in a basket for a rustic, festive look.
Tip #5: Layer in the details
Adding in details like a vintage bell and ribbon gives the wreath a personal touch.

Quick question: why did you stop posting your videos to Youtube? Will there come new content on Youtube again?
The front door styling looks amazing, layering doormats is a favourite trend of mine!
Hi Sarah! Thanks for noticing 😉 We will definitely be back with new exciting projects! Stay tuned!
I love those buckets…. but $205!!!! Must be nice to have money to spend like that on a frivolous item. Looks like it’s an easy DIY.
Hi Erin! So glad you like you like the buckets. Everyone has different budgets, wants, needs, free time, etc. These galvanized buckets are long-lasting and high-quality, and we believe they are a worthy investment. If you have the time, energy and resources to make a DIY version I bet they would turn out beautiful as well! Happy holidays!
What size outdoor rug are you using in these examples?
3 x 5!!
Love those jeans, and love that vest!
Thank you Kalley!!
Where is the vest from?!

Great video! These help so much! I just got the buckets and wreath to add to the bell and mat I already picked up. I love the quality and style of your products. Thank you!
Thank you so much, Lisa! We’re so glad you like it and hope you love love love your bell and mat! Xoxo
I have been eyeing those galvanized buckets, and after seeing them styled in your post I think I’ll have to purchase them today! LOVE everything Studio McGee, you guys are amazingly talented. Will any of the bells be restocked by chance?
Aw, we’re SO glad you like them!! At the moment we’re unable to restock most of our holiday decor, so sorry about that. Thanks for reading! Xo
Is that an Emtek Brighton entry set we see??
Any idea what type of privacy glass they used on this door? I love every look. I just need a new front door first. Have a great weekend and keep up the fantastic work!
I love the styling of each vignette! I think putting a doormat on an outdoor rug is so clever. I’ve always thought doormats look too small unless the porch is very tiny.
Thank you Rebecca!!! So glad you agree!
Can you please share the paint color and sheen on the front door? I am looking for a soft black. I like how its not a shiny finish.
Also, I can you share the type of Christmas tree you have in your planter?
Hi! This is gorgeous.
What is the paint color for this door? I also noticed the pattern on the door glass – what do you call this type of etching? We are considering a new front door that is 2/3 glass that is similar in style to this door – just not sure whether to keep the glass and sidelights CLEAR with a bevel on each pane, or whether some sort of etching like this would help maintain the amount of light but allow for more privacy. What do you think? Would love your advice please.
I know you don’t source all of your items, and understandable so! I love this front door, and am wondering if you could suggest some companies that have some streamline and simple front door options, like this one? I’m on the hunt, and every where I look seems like they’re out of the 2000’s.
LOVE that front door, where is it from or who makes it? Thank you!
Hi! Can you share where the front door is from? Having the hardest time finding something similar. Seems like there are a few of us on this post wondering the same thing…
I would also love to know where this door is from. Having a hard time finding this style to purchase
