The weather here has been absolutely beautiful lately! Perfect for eating meals on the porch and snuggling out here with a book. I've even been bringing my computer out here and working this week. This was the space that we first fell in love with when we saw the house. We loved how open it was and especially loved the high ceiling! When we first moved in we put the sofa and two chairs that we got from Wayfair last year out here but then that was about it. We didn't close on our house until after Thanksgiving so it wasn't worth putting any effort into the porch those first few months. Last month though, as the weather started to really warm up we partnered with Wayfair to really make this space feel like an extension of our home. It's like having another living room out here and it so comfortable!
We usually include a detailed source list at the end of our posts but this time we are doing something a little different. You can find pretty much all of the items shown here on one of our idea boards. You can just click here.
One of my favorite additions out here is this beautiful light fixture:
The table is so easy to clean off and perfect for a porch! It also would work well in a dining room. We kept our metal chairs for the side and then used some fun charcoal colored wingback chairs for the ends. Those have quickly become our families favorite chairs!
I love this oversized planter! I filled it with some branches I cut from the tree that you can see through the screen on the other side of the porch.
We used a small round ottoman in front of the chairs and a longer tufted one in front of the sofa. I love how versatile they are! They can be used as extra seating, to rest your feet on or as a place to set your food or a book! Along with their functionality I love the cozy element they add. They really make this space feel like an outdoor living room!
We also added lots of cozy pillows and throws to really make the space as comfortable as possible. I love the way the soft blues and creams look out here against the green grass and blue skies!
I love the subtle pattern on this indoor/outdoor rug:
Lola's favorite part of our porch is this little fairy garden we added.
I love adding string lights wherever I can so we added some out here on this porch just like we did on our last one. I used lights on a white cord though here too help it blend in with all the white paint.
Don't forget you can head on over here to check out our idea board that has just about all of the items shown out here on it along with some of our other favorite porch type items.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
