Now that the hydrangeas are blooming, I thought I would share my summer porch with you. A few things stay the same..(the daybed, and porch swing)..but the linens and the furniture placement always change..haha
I used a vintage chenille bedspread for the daybed this year. I have a hard time passing up chenille…this one has a few holes, so its perfect for the porch! You can read how I get my daybed ready for the season here.
The last couple of years I have placed my vintage wicker chairs/rockers in a grouping of 4, creating a cozy conversation spot. The table in the middle is from a yard sale that I painted. I have my breakfast out here when the weather cooperates. I love how the hydrangeas make it private….even though our nearest neighbours are acres away.
To make the porch even more romantic, I commissioned my niece to sew me some new chair cushions with ruffles. I gave her a stack of linen sheets that I had collected from various thrift stores, and antique malls, and an eyelet bedspread for the porch swing. I just love them!!!
We were refreshing the basement laundry area and this old rug was down there. Once I pulled it out on the porch, I decided to keep it under the swing! ( and the kitties love to lounge on it) I added vintage prints on the walls as well, and feel they really make the porch cozy.
We love our time spent out here. Thank you so much for stopping by, and I hope this gives you a few ideas for your outside space!
Cozy and comfy…pretty too! Furry in spots hehe 🙂 I can just picture grandma sitting with a tea…her feet up and a kitty on her lap. <3
Thanks Lynnie! xo
