It’s that time again, time for front porch living: talking to neighbors, sipping lemonade, and relaxing.
After a long cold winter, our porch is looking tired and worn.
I approach decorating outside spaces the same way I approach interior spaces. I start at the end…how do I want the space to look, feel, and live. Keeping in mind the hot, humid Washington summers, I want the space to be airy, breezy and relaxing. And of course, no color represents that more than “blue”.

The old red cushion is covered in linen fabric. Decorative pillows and a blanket, create a cozy nook
A vintage window, paper place mat and stencil create unique house numbers!
An old shutter painted Carolina Yellow (with CeCe Caldwell Chalk/clay paint) is the perfect backdrop for a basket of faux flowers;
And our mailbox goes Euro with spray paint and a stencil!
Other cool accents include:
Airy, breezy drapes, elevates the space from porch to outdoor room!
