Decorating Ideas for Porches

Thanks for sharing!


Good News! I think the bulk of the pollen is behind us here in South Carolina.

That means I can finally start decorating our porches for outdoor living.

To get my creative juices flowing, I ‘d thought I check out some inspiration. I hope these inspire you as well.

Decorating Ideas for Porches


Hanging baskets on a summer farmhouse porch

Town and Country Living always inspires me with her cozy, inviting farmhouse style. I'm hoping to get started on painting our porch ceiling haint blue soon.


A Southern Home Tour at The Everyday Home

The Everyday Home has really created a heart warming porch with reds. I especially love the touch of the fabric panels.


Front Porch Herb Garden Front Door

Cupcakes and Crinoline has an adorable porch with the whimsical bird sign.

Love the door color with the blues from Town and Country Living


Summer Condo Balcony Makeover

What Meegan Makes proves that even a condo porch needs styling.  Meegan is so creative with her thrifty finds!


A Stroll Through Life is not afraid of patterns and color. I love the combination to create this welcoming front porch.


Cedar Hill Farmhouse has a lovely porch at the ranch. I adore her porch with vintage finds. She even found that daybed on Craigslist!


Chalk Painted Cushions-8

Farm Fresh Vintage Finds is fabulous with the paint brush. Do you have cushions you are tired of….Beth painted hers!

Country Design Style is just that…comfortable, gorgeous country-style. I'm smitten with the window color. Smart how she brought the color out with the pillows.

Design Dreams by Anne has a great deck that feels like a porch. The reds in the flowers look so great with the aqua bench.

Also on OSH!  Plaid Christmas Porch


Top This Top That has fabulous style. The neutrals with the yellow accents are perfect!

Refresh Restyle has a fun, creative style that matches her shining personality!

Our Southern Home (me) My front and screened porches are perhaps my favorite spots to decorate.


Screened in Porch

Between Naps on the Porch always amazes me with her ability to create an outdoor room.



It All Started with Paint  goes bold with stripes! It's classic and allows you to add additional patterns and colors. Aren't the Hydrangea beautiful!

Thrift store furniture can be used on a porch with the proper paint via Our Southern Home #paintingoutdoorfurniture #thriftstore #porch

Thrift store furniture is a perfect addition to porches.


Tip to bring the indoors out!

  • Lamps can be used on a covered porch when further away from the elements….up close to the house
  • Mason jars of all sizes make fun candle holders and vases
  • Outdoor pillows are readily available at all price points
  • An outdoor rug can really define a sitting area
  • Don't be afraid to bring interior items outside to decorate for a party
  • Decorative plates are great accents on a porch. TJ Maxx and HomeGoods are wonderful sources
  • Thrift store finds make excellent candidates for the porch when painted with outdoor paints

  1. Hi Cristy, those are some great ideas for . We are looking to give ours a new look and I really fond these ones to give me ideas on how I would want it to look like. I had earlier tried Pinterest but it seems a little limited when it comes to porches.
    Thanks a lot for sharing.


  2. I like all the porches, but have trouble decorating mine because of our dogs, but I try!!! I have wicker rockers and a wicker plant stand but that’s about it. I would love to put more out there put it would get chewed up or broke so…

    1. Been there when our lab was a puppy. At 10 she’s no longer destructive! Of course the year and a half westie keeps chewing my shells up on the tables!

  3. So many fabulous porches. I love them all, but I really am drawn to yours, it is stunning. I love a large porch and you have created such an amazing and welcoming space. Thanks tons for featuring mine, I am thrilled to be in such great company.
