Front Porch Coming Together

We’re just finishing up on a front porch for a client and it’s just in time for the HEAT WAVE we’ve been having around here.  My client lives in a adorable 1920s bungalow in a great neighborhood and now that we’ve finished with her main living areas inside the house, it was only natural to move outside.  The porch was beautiful before we even started, and my client- who is really creative and loves entertaining-wants to be able to sit on her porch and read/ relax/ have drinks with friends.

Here’s a photo of the house:

We’ve added a little table & chairs, rugs, curtains and a super comfy porch swing.

Here’s a little peek of the the rope swing we had made before it was hung:


We did the pillows in an indoor-outdoor fabric and have used a mostly neutral palette that blends with the house’s current paint colors.  I’ll be adding some blue in the accessories to compliment the blue interiors.  Now that the main pieces are in, the porch feels like the perfect place to drink iced lemonade!!
We’re finishing up with accessories & potted plants soon & I can’t WAIT!!  I’ll be sure to share the afters. 🙂

xoxo, Lauren
