What are must-haves for your front porch? What furniture and accessories do you need to welcome your guests with a “we’re glad you’re here” feeling?
I searched the Internet and my neighborhood for ideas, and learned that the perfect porch is 1) colorful 2) comfortable and 3) personal.
Color: I like to keep my furniture and paint colors neutral, so I can easily change my accent colors to go with the season or my mood. A touch of pink, red, yellow or orange can have a huge impact with a little effort, much like this porch from Hope Designs.
What are your favorite colors? What are your favorite flowers?
Comfort: Fabric can provide both color and comfort to an outdoor space. This space from Woolrich Home looks like the perfect spot to curl up and read a good book, or sip a glass of tea or wine with good friends. I also like the idea of adding a lamp to give soft, indirect light for evening visiting.
Personal: Pillows, candles, glassware, planters, flowers, ceramics and throws are perfect ways to add color, comfort and personality to any space.
We did a front porch makeover this year. Sadie would like to invite you to take a closer look at our work in progress…
We have a couple of outdoor wicker chairs with a matching table. It’s a little whimsy with the bunny and bird. The flowers and pillows are a nice start.
I’m still looking for some bright flowers and a throw to add some color.
What’s on your front porch that says, “Please come over and sit a spell?”
