Beautiful Summer Porches (inspiration and ideas)

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see disclosures here.

Since it’s porch sitting (and rocking!) season, I thought I’d round up some inspiration and ideas for your beautiful summer porches!

Spring and summer are all about porch sitting.

Am I right??

If you are lucky enough to have a porch, that is. We haven’t always had one so we’ve really enjoyed having one since living here.
We have 2 rockers and a bench and use the porch quite often. (I’m a rocker kinda girl ;) )

What we don’t have, that I’d love, is a swing on the end. We talked about putting one in but never have.
Maybe one of these days we will! (then I’d be a swinging kinda girl, lol)

And since I don’t have a pretty porch to show you, I thought I’d round up a few of my sweet blogger friends’ porches so you might get some inspiration and maybe an idea or two you can use on your very own summer porches.

I should clarify since that may be confusing. ;) We DO have a porch but it’s not really in photo ready mode.
Remember I said we had gotten to the outside of our home to work? Well, the porch is also getting some love.
It is not finished but once it is, I will share it here on the blog.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the ones I’ll be sharing today!

PIN it to save it for later!

I hope you enjoyed today’s post full of summer porches and summer porch decorating ideas.
I can not wait to get ours finished so I can decorate it up pretty.

Do you decorate your porch for summer??

And if you follow along with me on Instagram you probably saw what I’ve been working on. I shared several “in progress” photos as I was painting over the weekend and earlier this week.
If not, you can catch a snippet of it over on my Facebook page. Scroll down, you’ll see it. ;)

I’m doing the final touches on it now. Hoping to share it next week on the blog. Stay tuned!

Have a wonderful weekend, friends!!

xoxo

  1. Nancy, I am inspired to flounce up my tiny front porch. It’s barely more than a landing yet it needs some love. :)
    Have a great week!

    1. Mine is so sad right now!! haha…but it’s getting some love in the way of paint and repair! ;) Have a wonderful weekend, Christina! xoxo

  2. What a beautiful collection of porches! I’m with you I love a rocking chair and thankfully a few of hours on the patio Rock. Thanks for including my little patio, I’m going to take some inspiration from some of the other lovely porches for a few updates this summer.

  3. I am so ashamed that my porch has 2 big lovely urns that are EMPTY! How embarrassing is that? We don’t enter in the front door so I forget about watering living plants. Seeing some of these porches with topiaries might be the answer to my dilemma 👍🏻! Thanks for the porch post.

    1. Mine is not so good right now either! ;) These gorgeous porches sure to make me want to get out there and get my work done quickly so I can decorate it up! And yes, get some topiaries!! Happy weekend to you, Cecilia! xoxo
