Front Porch Coming Together

We're just finishing up on a front porch for a client and it's just in time for the HEAT WAVE we've been having around here.  My client lives in a adorable 1920s bungalow in a great neighborhood and now that we've finished with her main living areas inside the house, it was only natural to move outside.  The porch was beautiful before we even started, and my client- who is really creative and loves entertaining-wants to be able to sit on her porch and read/ relax/ have drinks with friends.

Here's a photo of the house:


We've added a little table & chairs, rugs, curtains and a super comfy porch swing. 

Here's a little peek of the the rope swing we had made before it was hung:



We did the pillows in an indoor-outdoor fabric and have used a mostly neutral palette that blends with the house's current paint colors.  I'll be adding some blue in the accessories to compliment the blue interiors.  Now that the main pieces are in, the porch feels like the perfect place to drink iced lemonade!!



We're finishing up with accessories & potted plants soon & I can't WAIT!!  I'll be sure to share the afters. :)

xoxo, Lauren

Can you share the info on the patterned pillow fabric?

This house features design from 1920s and 1930s. Its cool to live in this house where the three front windows provide ventilation for the second story. The painting (house painter edmonton ab) complements well with the overall housing color.

Hi Lauren

I live in Maryland and can totally relate to the heat issue. My plants are suffering too. I just love front porches that have ceilings fans. I can't wait to see it all finished.

Looks great so far! I cannot wait to see the swing hung, and perhaps some lemonade nearby.

Have a great day!

I just bought the same printed pillows for my own front porch-so funny! This looks beautiful and I can't wait to see the rest!

That is just perfect! {I'm a DC-area girl and it looks like Falls Church to me}. Can't wait to see the finished product! :)

Thanks for the sweet comments! The patterned pillows are actually from World 'market!! They are an indoor fabric.
Xoxo,

A porch swing, ceiling fan and lemonade -- old-fashioned cool!

I love your porch swing! Did your hubby make it? If not, I would be interested to know where you purchased it.

Jen said...

Sorry, ADD and all. Hubby did a great job!
