Midcentury design isn’t just versatile – it’s also uniquely beautiful and inspiring. Give your porch a distinctive retro vibe with wooden wicker midcentury porch chairs and contrasting throw pillows.

Fresh and Clean
If you live in a warmer climate, keep the air fresh on your front porch with ceiling fans that can circulate the air. Also, create a clean environment by keeping porch décor organized and minimalistic in nature.

Dine Al Fresco
A screened-in porch offers the perfect space for outdoor dining. Consider adding a table and chairs to your screened-in porch to welcome guests over for a fresh summer meal, or to enjoy by yourself during breakfast or at the end of a long day.
It’s the Little Things
As Mary of the Selah Pines Farmhouse proved with her recent front porch reveal, it’s the little details that can really make a porch shine. Adding a garden or planting new plants and flowers in the beds you already have is a great way to bring natural elements to your porch environment.

An Extension of the Home
In many ways, the porch can be a natural extension of the interior design of a home. Create a seamless transition from indoors to outdoors by incorporating interior design elements, like throw pillows, lamps and art into the space.
Add More Color
Whether it’s a bright front door, flowers, throw pillows or some other type of décor, introducing new colors into your porch design can boost your mood and curb appeal.
