Black and White Porch Decor (with touches of green!)
Simple and classic black and white porch decor go with every season! Add a splash of color for a change with the seasons!
Hello beautiful friends!
I hope you had an amazing holiday weekend! We worked (and played) at the beach condo this past weekend. (did you catch my Instagram stories?)
As promised, I’m back today to share with you our black and white front porch. I’ve never done a black and white porch before.
I always use color. Colorful wreaths, pillows, etc.
I decided to do something completely different and I am loving it!
But I do still have a little color on the door with my spring wreath. (you can find the DIY details, here)
I’ve had the plaid rug down since the holidays. (I’ll have a source list at the bottom of this post)
My sweet hubby bought me another hydrangea for Mother’s Day.
I can never have enough of those! That makes 6 now. We have two small ones in the front and 3 huge ones in the back.
To the right side…
We found this bench at TJ Maxx (or Marshall’s) a couple of years ago.
There’s a spot in the middle of it that raises up and creates a small table. Kinda neat.
I’ve had this glass jar forever. I brought it out here and filled it with branches I found in our yard.
This little table was actually pink when I found it. I spray-painted it white to put out here.
Then just added a little greenery, etc, on top.
I love my ferns that are on either side of our front door. I found them online. (links below)
I usually have live hanging ferns but have opted to do this instead.
I recently painted our front door (see the details, here) and the white trim around it and it looks so much better.
Plus we got a much-needed new storm door too.
We are also planning on taking down the light fixtures (cleaning them up) and painting them black. (I think, lol)
All of that, and the new windows, make it look like night and day.
The fake ferns have been so awesome…and very low maintenance!
Can I just say how THRILLED I am that all of our windows are done! Yippee!!
I can not tell you how happy that makes me. It has been a long, long time coming.
The “welcome” sign I made last year.
You can find the details on it, here.
Our rockers have held up great. I repainted them a couple of years ago.
And remember that tiled table? If not, check it out, here.
I will switch out the spring-looking hydrangea wreath in a few weeks for summer. I am not sure what I’ll put up.
I do have a simple, green eucalyptus wreath I could use. BUT I am thinking I might make something new with a little bit of color.
Now to decide where to plant my pretty new hydrangea! :)
- Black and White Pillows (says out of stock on this one but this is a cute alternative >>> here)
- Hello mat (similar)
- Plaid Buffalo Check rug
- Black Urns
- Ferns (I have 2 in each urn for fullness)
- Black and White Tassled Pillow
PIN it to save it!
See you later this week!
looks stunning, well done.
here in South Africa would not be able to leave that on our Porches, would get stolen
Thank you, Cathy! Aw, I am sorry to hear that! :( xo
Oh Nancy, your porch looks so charming and welcoming! Love the bench with the pop-up table! I can imagine you sitting out there with a cuppa. The rockers are fantastic, I hope you sit out there and enjoy yourself. Ah, I do enjoy hydrangeas.
Have a great week!
Thank you so much, Christina! We actually love sitting out in our rockers and do often! :) xoxo
So pretty! We get too much wind where I live, so I have to stick with heavier items for my decor, which unfortunately means no pillows😢. I like the black and white combo with touches of green! I got my first Hydrangea this year, a white one, and I love it! Your door and windows look great, thanks for sharing!
Thanks, Vicki! Yes, we have our days of wind with the water being across the road. But usually not too bad, thank goodness! And yay for the hydrangeas!! You are going to love having it and watching it grow. I can NOT believe how big and bloomy all of ours are this year! xoxo
Love the black and white. It looks really good with the brick color! Very stylish! I have red for my accent color on my front porch with a light sage green house and white trim. People have stopped when I’m out front gardening and comment on the house, makes my day!
Your house would be one I would stop and comment on! Great work as usual!
Thank you, Vicki!! Oh, that sounds very pretty too! I can imagine, as I’m envisioning that color combo…lovely! Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week and weekend! xoxo
Love the porch! I did a black/white section in my booth and it’s done well. I love a pop of yellow in there too. Enjoy a nice rest on your porch.
Thanks, Cecilia!! Yes!! Yellow would look great with the black and white (especially for summer)…I might have to do that! ;) xoxo
Your front porch looks fabulous, Nancy!!!
I hope you have many awesome relaxing days rockin’ on your porch. I’d love to have a front porch.
Thank you, Michele! We actually love sitting out in the rockers and do often (before the mosquitos come out at night lol)! :) xoxo
