It's time to spend some time outdoors. So, for a comfy spot, it's time to perk up the porch or patio too! Here are a few pointers to get your wheels turning:
Make a Space - Define the space you have to work with by adding an outdoor rug or even a painted rug on the porch. Or if your porch isn't a place you can sit, a new, small doormat or welcome rug by the door will perk it up.
Bring the Indoors, Outdoor - Use furniture or planters or something that can give the feeling of an indoor space only be sure to use outdoor ready pieces. If you have a large porch, setting up a living area space will be a nice touch. Don't forget smaller side tables to hold drinks. If you don't have a large porch, decorate the area like you would a foyer inside of your home adding a beautiful planter of flowers by the door and don't forget a beautiful wreath or other door decor.
Something Bright/Something Fancy - Keep things interesting by adding a bold color to the mix or something fancy. A large porch maybe can have a fancy porch light that is unexpected (one that can be easily cleaned) or maybe a beautiful ceramic pot. Pillows covered in bright outdoor fabric will be nice on an outdoor chair or sofa. Anything that can keep the space warm and inviting will make it a nice place to sit and visit in the nicer weather.
