Despite the chilly temperatures this week, Atlanta is heading into spring and we’re daydreaming of some quality outside time, particularly on the porch. Don’t let yourself be caught off-guard when May and June come around, start getting your space ready for some sweet summertime lounging now!
No matter what size your porch is, a fun and colorful indoor-outdoor rug instantly adds character and comfort to the space. It defines your space and provides solace for summertime bare feet.
Pillows and cushions! Many times outdoor furniture could use some variety in texture and hue. Add a pop of color while making your outdoor area all the more comfortable and luxurious with some bold and funky pillows.
Plants make great decor! There are a lot of creative, unique ways to display your gardening handiwork. From turning a chandelier into a hanging planter, to using a shipping pallet as a vertical garden, the possibilities are endless. Check out last week’s blog post for some great information on how to start your own container garden!
A little privacy is nice. Make the outdoors feel a little more secluded by putting up some sheer panels, or go bold with fresh prints and patterns. Bonus: this is a great way to help keep the porch cool!
Speaking of keeping cool, don’t forget the outdoor fan! Especially here in the South, summer means humidity. Keep the air moving for a refreshing, cool breeze. Your porch is just as eager for warmer weather as you are. Get it ready!
