Friday Favs: Perfect Porches

The weather (up until this past week anyway) was absolutely gorgeous for March.   Even though today it went back to 30’s and snow flurries, it still got me thinking about spring.

One of my favorite things of the nicer weather is having a huge (screened!) front porch. Ours in need of a little TLC though and since I’m sure I’m not alone I though I’d put my Pinterest Daydreaming to work!

I absolutely adore how fun and colorful this space is while still being bright and airy.   Plus, those chairs!

This one’s positively dreamy if you’re a sucker for a porch swing.  The primarily black and white palate looks oh-so sophisticated and makes the plants really pop.

This one’s a little more formal, but you could definitely tone it a bit with some more casual plants and accessories.  It’s definitely the kind of space where you could curl up with a book or chillax with your friends and a bottle of wine.

I love the relaxed style going for this one.  It’s informal but still sophisticated.

Pops of bold color, Panton chairs, and a raw-edged table?  Yes please!  I’m a sucker for some good eclectic styling.

… and I love me a touch of Boho too!  Vibrant colors and loads of texture–it’s like tropical paradise even if you live in the Upper Midwest.

Short on space?  No problem.  This tiny balcony is still a fantastic little retreat.
