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!
