It was a beautiful weekend here in Western Michigan which had me thinking about all things outdoors, that is outdoor decor. Let’s be real, I’m not your “lets go camping and hiking now that the weather is nice” kinda girl. Outdoor rugs, pillows, and potted plants is where it’s at for me.
So for today’s Mood Board Monday I’m all about our front porch! Follow along and see what I’ve come up with.
Since this is our first summer in the new house, I’m really looking forward to making the front porch stand out! The front of the house is obviously the first thing people see when they come over so it’s important that it makes a statement and feels welcoming.
Currently the front of the house looks like this:
Yes, I took that picture standing in my pajamas this morning…the camera doesn’t lie. #keepingitclassy
Also, super depressing to see that bare bones shrub, come on spring and bring it to life!
Here’s what I love:
- The boxy columns
- The exposed brick
- The vaulted entry
- The windows with all that natural light pouring into the house
- Paint the front door
- Powerwash the concrete
- Touch up the paint
- Decorate it all kinds of fancy
