I don't have any pictures of the porch, and right now it's basically just a junk holder (bags of plaster and rolls of old carpet). But it's just your standard run of the mill front porch, with siding on the inside and lots of windows.
I'm going to tell you the truth... I kinda want my porch to be a little quirky. Partly because I myself am quite quirky, but mostly because I live in such a normal little town... I think they need and injection of different into their lives. Haha! I want the space to be somewhere where I can enjoy chill out and relax, but also can take the abuse of being used every day. So here is my inspiration.
1. I love this doorknob for my front door. So fun and retro!
2. I've always dreamed of having a beautiful black storm door.
3. Quirky planters full of plants I can't kill (Like cacti? Maybe?)
4. Chartreuse durable carpeting.
5. A black hammock instead of a porch swing.
My mom has convinced me that a bright blue door is just what I need on my porch, and she is totally right. I'm in love with this one and this one. And I think that this blooming monogram floral decoration would look just perfect against that bight blue.
At first I wanted to paint the ceiling with black and white stripes, but now I'm thinking I'll just install curtains like these. But after looking at this picture, maybe it's worth the extra effort to paint the ceiling. So cool!
I'd love to have some colorful hanging planters in my windows as well. This tutorial is great... and this one, and I bet I could make this one, and this one could be made quite easily, too. Oh! and I can't forget about this one for string planters!
I love this bench and these decorations. Gives a very casual vibe, though I feel weird putting up skateboards when I don't actually skate. Maybe I should take up a new hobby. :P
I haven't really given a lot of thought to lighting, but I love the look that these fairy lights give the whole space. I will defiantly be trying that.
