Before you begin decorating, think about how you will live on the porch. Will you use it for dinner parties? For lazy afternoons spent reading? For rowdy board game sessions with family? How you plan on using the porch will impact what furniture you add to the space. No matter what, a cozy rug underfoot will make the porch feel like an extension of your home.
Pillows and throws also add to the ambience of an outdoor room. Don't be afraid of vibrant colors, either! Pillows and throws in bold hues will match the brilliant colors of the outdoors. Bring in vintage elements to add character to a space. If everything is brand new, the space will be less inviting. These vintage stained glass windows add a feeling of yesteryear to my porch.
