Brighten up your porch by accenting with colorful containers of foliage and flowers. If you have a one dimensional space, injecting some excitement could be as easy as adding flowers. They bring life and color to the area, and they are so easy to add, change, and build with the space. Here, a simple bistro table and chairs offers seating and a breakfast nook for morning meals al fresco. Assorted containers of flowers and foliage bring energy and cohesion to the space even though each container is slightly different. Use the flowers you love and you will see how they bring everything together and offer the easiest and most visually impactful porch statement you could make.
Wicker has officially transcended its stereotype. We have heard rumors that wicker can be seen as old-fashioned and fussy, but we think that, styled with bright, modern details, there is nothing prettier, more delicate, and porch-perfect. These small-scale white wicker seating pieces, size and style ensures that the furniture will not overpower this small back porch. This condensed vignette does not trade scale for style though. Beige-and-white striped cushions were made to fit the chairs and sofa, and the effect is one of a polished, inviting outdoor space. Clusters of bright flowers in vases and porch corners filled with low-to-the-ground green plants in woven baskets complete the scene.
