    Decorating a Warm & Neutral Front Porch

    Happy Fri-yay, everyone!

    Today I’m coming at you with a little daydream post. Sometimes I like to imagine a space as it could be and my imagination gets away from me, and today is no different.

    Have I mentioned that we’re moving? I haven’t “officially” posted about it because I can’t really share any photos with you yet since the previous owner’s things are in all the pictures I do have, so unfortunately that’s going to have to wait, but if I haven’t officially said it, here it is:

    We’re moving!

     One of my favourite things about this mysterious new house is the front porch. It’s not huge, but I think it might be big enough for a swing, and you guys…I really really really want a front porch swing!

    Naturally I started scheming what this space could look like, so from the swing came cushions, lighting, black and white stripes… you know, the usual! And this is what I came up with.

    And yes, that’s a heater. Because the thought of sitting on a front porch swing on a cool Fall evening is just delightful!

    You can see a bit more about each item below and daydream a little with me. Have a lovely weekend, everyone!

    porch swings
    X-Back Porch Swing
    Who wouldn’t want one of these? Grab a cup of coffee and start the day off right. Sounds lovely to me!
    custom outdoor cushion
    Double-Piped Outdoor Sunbrella Bench Cushion
    For a little extra comfort on that lovely swing, add a custom cushion and you’re ready to enter nap-ville!
    garden stools
    Queens Garden Stool
    A garden stool is perfect for either setting down that cup of coffee or to rest your feet upon!
    Cub Square Planter Box
    Add some aromatic herbs or flowers to a planter – better yet, something naturally repellant of mosquitoes, like lavender, so you get the best of both worlds!
    Deck Boxes and Storage
    Saint Albans 22 Gallon Cube Deck Box
    Store a blanket and your cushions in a small deck box to keep everything safe from the elements, and you get an extra seat for company, too!.
    Decorative Pillows
    Cabana Outdoor Bolster Pillow
    Toss some of these onto the swing for extra comfort – and the occasional nap!
    patio heaters
    1500W Halogen Free Standing Outdoor Electric Patio Heater
    For those cool Summer nights or the chilly Fall afternoons, a patio heater is a wonderful addition to a front porch so that it can be enjoyed longer!
    string lights
    Vintage Metro 24 Light String Lighting
    Because it’s important to see at night – plus you want to enjoy the porch at all hours!
