Spring Porch Inspiration



Lately, when I pull up to my house, I take a look around and think to myself, "BLAH." I know spring is here but it just doeset' quite feel like it yet.

Spring has been very slow this year. The grass is still brown. The trees are not budding and there are no signs of flowers anywhere. Just dead growth from last year.

I thought this year I would bring some color to my porch to eliminate that "BLAH" feeling by adding in a bright color to my decor. I'm not much of a yellow person, but I've really been inspired by it lately. I think yellow is exactly what my front porch needs.

Typically, I usually decorate with pretty rustic items, mostly antiques. I thought it would be fun to incorporate some bright items with my rustic pieces. 

I put together the above inspiration board to get some ideas of what to look for when I am out and about. The barrel, chairs and crates are already there! 

I also have a few Pinterest projects in mind that I might give a try if I have time before we get into the fields. 

This is my first year to decorate for spring. Usually I just wait until May to pot flowers and that brings color to the house. For some reason, this year, I am just a wee bit antsy and am trying something new!


Do you decorate for spring? What are you favorite spring colors to add to your porch?

  1. I have had a naked front porch for going on 14 years. This might be the year I own my porch!

  2. We have a similar style! Shocking. :) Obviously, I love using purple flowers to tie into the front door color and I always drag out my rusty red wagon, old wooden chair and a step stool I just as an end table/floor pot stand. I do LOVE that rug and I'm actually in the market for one... Where is it from?!!
