Spruce Up The Porch for Summertime!

There's nothing like a big dose of curb appeal for your home in the summertime - not to mention it's finally time for a little "porch sittin'!" Combine the two by sprucing up your porch for the season to come - since a porch should be about relaxing closer to nature, shouldn't it?
In order to have a porch that you love looking at AND relaxing in, we recommend you think about these three elements for your summer porch:
1. Keep the decor light - don't overload the porch with too many elements.
2. Bring in something bright - either in the form of flowers or by painting wood or metal a fun color.
3. Make it comfortable - maybe it goes without saying, but we've seen a lot of porches with uncomfortable-looking chairs that don't look very relaxing. Think cushions and pillows and imagine yourself lazily reading a book there on warm afternoons...now that's comfortable!

When creating a summer porch we love to come home to, we like to look for items in and around our home, at garage sales, or what we can make ourselves. Decorating for summer can be easy and plain fun without breaking your budget - and just about everyone appreciates that!
Using bright, fun colors wakes this porch up for summer!
Lovingly homemade items like the house numbers and old window art bring personality to your porch, especially in colors that pop!
This porch has the comfort element down pat! It also is a great example of using what you have (an old crate, painted jar vase and simple flowers).
This light and lovely porch has just the right amount of different elements to make it welcoming, but not overwhelming.
