But first, I’m excited to share our own Summer porch…

  1. First time commenting, Kristi… Love your blog! You do lovely work and decor. 🙂 Wanted to know… what type of flowers do you have in the white pots on the far right side, going down the steps? Very pretty in contrast to the white pots/planters.

    1. Thank you so, so much for your kind words Julie! I wish I could tell you all about those pretty flowers, but the truth is, I know nothing about gardening and have no clue what they are – I found the pots already made at the greenhouse and fell in love instantly! I love how they all trail down the pots. So sorry I can’t be more help!

      1. Thanks for the reply. I was actually asking about the peach/pink flowers… they look like they might be impatiens? No worries if you don’t know. 🙂

          1. Yes! They are gorgeous! My next guess would have been begonias, so I think you are right… I have two empty white pots on my landing (aka my porch!). I’m going to fill them with those! (*runs to Walmart*) Thanks, Kristi!

  2. Love, love , love your porch–especially the sectional! Our windows are close to the ground like yours, so I wondered how much of the back of the sectional you can see from inside house? I have always avoided putting furniture that is taller than the bottom of the window, but that limits the options for furniture.

    1. Thank you so, so much Diane! Though it’s a lower profile sofa, it does sit a few inches above the bottom of the window, but with the basket weave texture running all along the back, it actually looks quite pretty. Maybe something with a low profile that looks nice from the back might work well for you too. Good luck!!!

  3. Your porch looks amazing!
    I consider a porch the perfect place to get comfy with a cup of tea and a book after a long day of work or just to play with your kids.
    Your ideas are just great: pillows, vintage elements, flowers and the bright & beautiful wreath.. perfect.
    The pillows are my favourites. I add them wherever I can: porch, sofa, reading chairs, master bed.. I think they are a great addition to any place you want to make comfortable and cozy. 🙂
    Thank you for this useful article!

  4. I know, me and my husband love sitting on the porch late at night with a glass of wine.
    I don’t know if you ever considered it, but a swing might be a great addition too! It gives you such a good feeling – almost like when you were a child. 🙂
