the cure for the common porch

The common denominator in all these porches is comfort , coziness and a bit of fun!  I am ready to spruce up my front porch and these photos have been a great inspiration for  me, so I just had to share!


I love a great pop of color.  


There's nothing like the feel of an old southern porch, like the one above. 


Oooh!  I love this look!  I think I want to go with this color palette. 


Clean and simple


Neutral and classy


A little bit country


Casual and beachy


Perfectly shady


A  very inviting entry-porch combination


Coastal charm


California fun with a vintage feel


Wicker and ticking stripes


Great backdrop that offers a bit of privacy


Classic summer look


Mix and match vintage finds


Modern and fun


What's not to like?


Great colors



This is a real "outdoor room"


Moroccan-Spanish style


Location, location, location


Black accents tie this all together


Comfort is always a plus


This is one of my favorite looks


Here is a close-up of the previous porch.  
I really like how the texture of the rug works with all the bright white and vibrant colors.


Colors of the surf and sand


This is basically a neutral palette with a few great chartreuse pillows and bright accents.  


A lovely matchy-matchy set 


This could be fun! 



Adirondacks are always a classic beachy look!

  2. Aw our first home had a front porch across the entire front of the home and I miss it soooo badly. Our porch now is so tiny and it faces the wrong way. Full of hot sun at just about the time we finally make it to sit there. Love your inspiration photos.

  7. I really enjoyed this post, some I have seen but most I hadn't. I love outdoor rooms and you have given us all some great inspiration. We use our outdoor space here in FL daily.

  8. Oh...these are such beautiful examples. I'm going to have to pin some of these to keep for inspiration for my own outdoor space.

  11. I would love to spend time on any of these porches. There wasn't one that wasn't just beautiful! How inspiring! Thanks so much for sharing.

  12. I like how these porch furnishings look like proper indoor furniture, not outdoor furniture. It adds that touch of class to the place and makes it look like an extension of the house really. I cant wait to redo the front of my house, its not a porch as such (well we dont call them that in Australia anyway) but I love the look of welcoming and sitting and sipping a drink out the front in comfort. Thanks for the inspiration :)

  15. You sure have a lot to take inspiration from! I agree, those cozy porches look so nice and comfy. The one thing that’s common with all of them, though, is that they’re all airy, and I think that’s one thing that makes a porch comfortable and welcoming. There has to be room for you to move about and stretch out.

  16. I’m captivated by the first pic! :D I love how the red stands out among all the white. :D Plus, I love the swing at the back. Thanks for sharing these pics. I have a good idea now of how I’ll remodel my porch. :D

  17. I really admire the people behind these awesome designs. They all look beautiful! The porch that has a swing sofa was the best for me. Grownups can reminisce about being a child when they have a large lounge sofa like that in their deck. It’s so fascinating!
