10 ways to decorate your porch this summer
Time to create new memories outdoors. What could be better than sitting on the veranda and entertaining new guests, or spending time enjoying the outdoors? Whether you want to entertain or spend time alone, you want to decorate your porch to make it as comfortable as possible. Here are a few ways you can do it the most summerly way.
Keep it light
In the summer months you want to keep it bright and airy. It will not only be crisp and clean, but the room will look lively and fresh. Summer is the perfect time to change your dark decor for lighter, feminine shades that help make the room feel bigger
Keep it simple, but add color. The perfect way to do that is to add colorful furniture that brings the freshness of spring straight to your veranda. Consider adding the colorful element, even in the back porch for a perfect touch.
Set up a bar
Yes, you read that a bar is right on your porch. A veranda bar is perfect for entertaining and brings indoor fun right outside. The idea is to have a small bar that brings the happy hour feeling to any time of the day. Also, lay out a few cups so you are always prepared.
Add a swing
We love the idea of an outdoor swing that’s soothing and provides the perfect extra seating area while it’s still fun. Combine your swing with simple seating to emphasize the feminine texture in the room. You may also want to add textured pillows to lighten the room.
Change your pillows
If you already have a well-equipped porch, it’s time to swap your darker pillows for brighter colors. This is the easiest and most cost-effective way to bring a bit of spring to any room in the house. Look at colors and patterns in shades of green, yellow, red and orange for a summery and summery touch.
Add a rustic accent to your porch in small doses. Use a barrel or even small wooden side tables to maintain the rustic feel without overstraining the space. Connect with neutral colors and blues of authentic country flair.
Plants are an excellent addition to your patio, not only do they get the sunlight they need, but they will bring that “tropical” feeling to the room. Use bright plants and mix a few green pieces to complete the look.
Rattan and / or straw
Nothing screams summer like rattan furniture. Rattan is airy, which is perfect when it’s warm and you do not want to sit on a piece of hot leather. Instead, swap your leather piece for rattan and enjoy a cooler area.
