4 Adorable Summer Front Porch Styles to Try

Before we dig into the styles, I wanted to go over a couple of questions that many of us have when decorating a front porch.

Questions:

#1  How do you decorate a porch for the summer ?

#2  What should I put on my front porch?

Here are 3 Key Elements I recommend for porch decorating:

  • rug – guests to wipe their feet on
  • planter and/or plants – plants create a cozy and welcoming environment
  • wreath or door hanger – welcome “sign” to your guests

 

 


4 Adorable Summer Front Porch Styles to Try

There are 4 style/mood boards here to inspire you this spring/summer 2021 and bring some happiness and cheer to your homes! 

I know it’s been a tough, long road and we all could use some sunshine – inside and outside of our hearts and homes this year.

So whether your style is coastal, modern farmhouse, cottage, bohemian, shabby chic, or a combination of styles – there is something for everyone! 🙂

STYLE #1:  HELLO SUNSHINE

This yellow and blue front porch style brings in a fun and playful way to spread some sunshine. 

It’s a classic style with the blue striped pillows and blue plaid rug, but adds a boho twist with the votive lanterns and bright yellow accent table.   

This style is perfect for those of you who love the traditional blue and yellow color palette, but want a more modern version of this chic pairing.

Is this your style?

STYLE #2:  POPSICLE SMILES

This happy front porch style brings in colors that remind me of popsicles and sherbert flavors – right?  

It combines different ways to add corals, pinks, greens, yellows, and blues using the striped rug and pillow.   It’s fun, fresh, and perfect for coloring “outside of the box.”

This style is great for those of you love all of the colors in the rainbow, and aren’t afraid to use them – all at once!

This sweet front porch style is similar to number 1, but is intended for the blue and pink lovers out there. 

Using different shades of pinks, corals, oranges (striped pillow), add more warmth and feminine touches to this look.  It’s not too girly – but definitely soothing.  

This style best fits those of you who love a sense of peace and calm, with a little punch of Happy!!

STYLE #4:  LEMON PARADE

This front porch style is fun, happy, whimsical, and bold all at the same time!

Just by changing out the rug  – from style number 1 – completely changes the look!  Of course, I changed out my “ribbon” color on the wreath to a turquoise color to match the rug – but you get the idea!

This style is perfect for those of you love to laugh – with your friends – or even at yourself, and you don’t take things too seriously.  Plus, you’re bold and you own it!
