Porch Dreaming: Creating an Inviting Spring and Summer Front Porch

A porch is a welcome and relaxing place to unwind and gather with friends and family on those lovely warm spring and summer days. To me, having a porch is almost like a having a certain lifestyle. One where life is lived more slowly. Where neighbours visit more freely. It’s creating a space that engages with the neighborhood and helps build community. Here are some inspirational and inviting front porch ideas including porch decorating, porch swing ideas, porch signs, porch quotes, front porch design, and farmhouse front porch ideas to enjoy and extend your outdoor time. Life is better on the porch!

Love the warm earth tones with the white, the wicker and rattan, and the hanging chair.


So fun- love this idea! Hanging chairs add such a unique element to a space.

Love the splashes of color and all the elements that went into making this such an inviting space: drapes, hanging baskets, bed swing, pillows, lantern, stools, chairs, flowers, rug, ceiling paint, side table.
