Front Porch Mood Board

Front Porch Mood Board by Two Purple Couches #frontporch #frontporchdecoration #outdoorliving #outdoorstyle #patio #porch #summer

Now that the grass is green, the buds are showing, and the temps are climbing, I’m turning my attention from indoors to out! And this year, our front porch could use a little bit-o-lovin’. So I put together this Front Porch Mood Board to help me get inspired and focused.

We’ve already got a nice pair of club chairs, but the poor cushions are old, faded and have been through a lot of rainstorms. Plus, they’re brown. And the facade of our home is brown: brown brick, brown shutters, brown door. See Exhibit A. Or should I saw B for Brown:

See? Our porch could really use a punch of color!

Tom and I are both drawn to the tealy, turquoisey blues and lime-apple greens. I’d also like to throw in a pop of orange or yellow (or even—gasp!—fuschia pink, if I can get Tom to go along!). Yes, flowers will help, but it’s time we put a little love into this fab front porch. Because the porch was the reason we chose this exterior. I love front porches. They’re so friendly, warm and feel like a bygone era come back to life. A big front porch is like your home throwing its arms wide open to wrap you in the biggest bear hug ever.

So, to jazz things up, we’re hoping to bring in some fresh new cushions and pillows, planters full of flowers, and some fun accessories. Maybe a brightly colored garden stool or a quirky lantern. Oh, aaaaannnnd, probably a new color on the front door!

    My favorite line from this post (and probably from EVERY blog post I’ve read this evening while clicking through from bloglovin’): “A big front porch is like your home throwing its arms wide open to wrap you in the biggest bear hug ever.” Wow, girl. A writer you are. I can almost feel the bear hug now! And we don’t even have a front porch, ha ha.

    Cannot wait to see what wonders you work with your front porch, especially considering this bright and beautiful mood board you’ve pulled together. And painting the front door? Eek! So excited to see what color you go with! I’m pulling for something bold! (Just what Tom wants to hear, right?) 😉

    Hello there! In searching for front porch ideas, I’ve found your blog and can hardly believe it, as the colors of your mood board palette are my regular feel-good palette; I have indeed found the perfect greige in two kinds of tile and one kind of paint; and I have two purple couches in my living room. I am currently flummoxed by the front and back porches of my also-brown brick house, both of which need immediate work, the front porch’s masonry work of which is already completed. I feel completely stuck, unable to choose how to adequately manage this project, and will be mining your blog for compatible ideas. Glad to have found it!
