DRESSING UP YOUR SUMMER PORCH

Who doesn't enjoy spending
an afternoon of porch sitting?
Just taking time for solitude and
taking in all that nature has to offer.
I thought it may be fun to begin
the week by gathering some inspiration
from various styles of outdoor spaces
found on Pinterest!


I adore this space...
reminds me of Maine in summer.
Don't you just love the pop of red!


Love the colors....
and the details!


A beautiful updated style for an older home!


Beautiful...a color well chosen for wicker.
The porch ceiling is also a lovely accent.


Green against green....peaceful and happy.


A Texas style porch always gives a warm welcome.


Sky blues...my mother would have chosen this.


LOVE!
This reminded me a beautiful home in Kennebunkport!


I want to live here.......


This one must be in the Mississippi Delta....

I love porches....don't y'all?

  1. Betsy, I loved all these porches. Just when I thought I found the one I loved best , then I thought I liked the next one more. LOL. I truly would love a porch so deep you could sit out while it rained. :):)The one you said looked like Kennebunkport would work for me. Makes my wee porch look so sad...so I better get to work on that. Blessings to you , xoxo, Susie

  2. These are all beautiful porches. How I wish I had a porch, but I live in the city. If I sat in front of my house I would either be blocking the sidewalk or be in the middle of the street.

  3. Oh Betsy, you've chosen some beautiful porches to share with us!! I so wish we had a nice porch to sit outside on; we need a good screened porch or a glassed sunporch because the mosquitoes are so bad here (lots of creeks in our neighborhood). These pictures are good to dream over, as the weather is horribly dreary here -- cold and rainy.

    Have a wonderful day!

    Hugs,

  4. oh yes! I love all of these porches. I grew up with porches.
    the third picture takes me straight back to upstate NY in the thousand islands area.
    summers there... lovely cool breezes and warm days and a good book sitting in old wicker chairs.
    heaven.

  5. I guess you bloggers who post such tantalizing photos of home decor know that I am scrutinizing each and every one, looking for ideas for my own home. You just make it so easy!!

  6. That was a lovely gathering of porches. I really like the painted ceilings in some accent color, not white. Which one is most like the one you have now?

    1. We do not have a front porch Vee. We have a patio featured on my sidebar. My grandmother's home featured a beautiful front porch similiar to one of these however.

  7. I adore porches! I miss having one, and we do have one planned in our long term plan for the house. Much nicer than a deck!
