Summer living-boho front porch vibes

The weather is warming up and I don’t know about you but the first thing I have to do is spruce up my front porch! I love to mix lots of plants, move a few plants back outside and make our entry a welcoming hello for the summer.

We bought our mid-century modern home exactly a year ago, and while you would think the amount of work renovating it would be great material for blogging, I sometimes struggle to balance it all and share what we have done.

The first huge project was painting the exterior a dark warm grey and lighter grey combination with white accents. It plays up the the angles of the entry way, and while I don’t have a huge porch I try to maximize the space with some fun things that make me happy.

This area rug is a thrifted find here in town, the pots and planters a mix of new and used that I have scored over time. The stand in the back is an industrial stool with a top that spins, so it makes a much better plant stand than a comfy seat

I love to mix natural wood and wicker in to bring warmth and depth to spaces indoors and outside too.

I would love to say that I have mastered Macrame but this was a find from Marshall’s that I could not pass up. I thought it would be kind of fun to use it as a door hanging instead of a wreath this summer.

We still have a fence to build and two bathrooms to totally redo, but we are getting there project by project. I will share the newly finished concrete kitchen countertops soon too, they are so cool and I was worried I would not like them. Not only were we really sore and tired when we finished them, but we ended up loving them sooooo much!

Please scroll down and check out some more beautiful summer spaces from a few of my great blogging friends!!  I hope this finds you enjoying the sun, family, friends and time to relax a little as we move into another summer. As always thank you for reading friend, love you so!!

  1. I just love your front porch, Tanya! So welcoming and love all of your pots plants with their different shades of colour! And your macrame find from Marshals sure adds a gorgeous boho feel!

    • Thank you Sam, so ready for summer and the flowers seem to help us feel like it’s already here!! Thank you again 🙂

  2. You really made the most of your small-ish porch, Tanya! I would never have thought of putting a macrame hanging on the front door or a woven bowl under the porch light as outdoor decor, but it works so well that I’m considering doing the same! You always inspire me to think outside the box 🙂 (And that rug is gorgeous, BTW). Love it all!!

  3. Your porch is amazing Tanya, I love the rug and the planters and of course the macrame!! It is such a welcoming entrance, I love the colours too!!
