While we still love a good bold and juicy color palette, it was time for a little bit of a refresh on our front porch.
Just a simple change in paint colors made such a dramatic difference to our homes exterior. We went from a reddish pink color to a white and turquoise scheme. This automatically made our front porch feel brighter and bigger. We went with turquoise for the trim around the windows and the exposed beams to add a pop of color and whimsy (two things always welcome at our home!). We also added some shutters to the windows. They soften up the home and give it a little more of a country cottage feel.
Another easy change we made here was switching up the artwork and seating. We kept our industrial pallet bench but gave it a new look with some quilted linens and pillows, again adding to the cottage vibe. We then replaced the arm chairs for something a little more rustic, a wooden Adirondack chair painted to fit our color scheme.
Just like that we have a completely different look for our front porch! It’s bright, fresh, fun and we love it. This is the perfect spot to sip your coffee in the morning while watching the birds go for a swim in our pond.
