I love a well-decorated outdoor space. As soon as the weather gets warm, my attention heads outside and we spend as much time as possible out there.
We had a beautiful front porch at our old house that I finally decorated when we were trying to sell the house. I could have kicked myself for waiting so long to make the space beautiful.
Hanging curtains on the end of the porch created a cozy nook that felt like a real room. Fabric does wonders even in outdoor spaces.
We don’t have a front porch on our new house (sad face) so I added curtains to our back patio. We had just moved in when I took these pictures. It’s so nice to realize that we have grass and flowers where there was once bare earth. Progress!
This year I’m toying with some ideas for using trellis to create some more privacy on the back porch.
I’m picturing something sort of like this with a flowering vine growing on it…maybe a Clematis or a Climbing Hydrangea.
As I was browsing around the web looking for inspiration, I came across some other great ideas:
Do you have a porch? Do you decorate it for summer?
