Recently, I spruced up the front porch with a new door wreath and colorful indoor/outdoor pillows…
Many of you probably remember what our porch looked like BEFORE we moved in…
it was pretty plain and the front door (and shutters) were painted the most unattractive mustard color.
So we painted the door and shutters black- very classic!
I also added my woven door basket, filled with seagrass and a starfish for a "coastal look". We then added a series of starfish in the transom windows, 3 black lanterns (which look fabulous lit up at night!) and a new door mat.

The porch has a large area for seating and a ceiling fan for those warmer days, here it is before:
We furnished it with white wicker pieces and black and white patterned cushions and pillows to complement the black door/shutters and white trim.
It is such a nice place to sit now and read a book or wait for the morning carpool…whenever! A few more pic's:
I recently updated our porch again with my new Southern Nest monogrammed door wreath…
And even more recently, I added two of Linnea Designs indoor/outdoor aqua pillows…aren't they fabulous?
I really love how they brighten up the porch!
I hope you all are enjoying the warmer weather wherever you are!
