perfect porch



We all know I love our little house. One thing I REALLY love are the porches. We have THREE!!

There the traditional front porch, a screened in back porch, and a screened in porch off the master bedroom. I've had fun collecting things to try to make our porches look nice and homey. 


Now, they all have some ways to go and below you will find some items that help make a perfect porch!

Hampstead Buffet Table
If I could afford this from Pottery Barn, this table would be sitting right on our screened in porch as we speak!


Rope Swing
We are looking for something like this for our upstairs porch.

Greek Key Lounger
Seriously, this is so cute. I'd love to sit in this cute chair while Ty grills burgers!!


Cabana Chair

This would be so fun on a patio!!!


Ikat Placements
Precious placemats to accompany an outdoor table.

Rocking Chairs
No southern porch is complete without rocking chairs!!!! Lowes has them for $99!


Live Topiaries
 No porch is complete without some green!


Table
You always need some extra side tables.

Pawley's Island Hammock
I LOVE a hammock. Pawley's Island hammocks are the BEST. My parents have one at their house and it is a mildew-free one! We forget and leave it in the rain (has been out there 3+ years and it hasn't fallen apart)!

Ferns
Need I say more? We know I love my ferns!


What accessories are necessary for your porch? I'm open to more suggestions!

A huge porch both front and back is necessary in our next home!!!!! I hope to redo our back covered patio this summer and include some awesome hanging ferns! Perfect Southern touch!

I seriously need to work on our screened in porch, too. It always seems to go on the backburner.

I'm so ready for our house to be renovated so I can decorate our porch!

Love these ideas! I have a hammock, but no porch and no where to hang it. :( Can't wait to see your final product.

I want to see pictures of your porches!! So jealous you have one right off the bedroom!

You have three? I wish you post the picture of your porches. I understand your love for porches. Not only it's an upgrade to the house, but it's a perfect place to spend quality time with family and friends, like having a dinner or get together. Also, it's a safe place for kids to play.
