Decorating a porch for winter after the Holiday season can be a challenge.
This particular porch, out of the three that I have,
is definitely used and viewed from the house the most.
So it is important to me that it stay bright and cheery on those dreary winter days.
When the weather is milder, I start my day off with coffee in hand
watching the sunrise.
During the winter months, the sunrises are spectacular.
I have to sometimes watch it from other side of the french door. The warmer side!
The inspiration piece for the decor of the porch
were these beautiful pillows with the knotted rope design.
They are from Grandinroad and were a Christmas gift from my brother and sister-in-law
and of course I had to have them monogrammed!
There will always be blue and white in the color scheme due to this
outdoor rug that I purchased from Frontgate.
The rugs that I waited almost 9 months to arrive due to a backorder, but worth the wait.
I added the pillows of apple green and white
as I love the color combination of blue and white with pops of green.
I am always on the lookout for blue and white pieces
and I spotted this beauty at HomeGoods the other day.
Perfect for the porch as it goes so well with the rug.
I love plants; however, during the winter months
it is difficult to maintain the houseplants out there when temps fall below freezing.
I use either evergreens or faux greenery like the boxwoods in the flower pots.
I must say that I love the mirror on the tea cart
that reflects the Carolina Blue sky.
You can also see the reflection of the sky in the window.
I do have one “houseplant” on the coffee table.
When the temperatures drop to below freezing, it is brought indoors.
Everything else can remain outdoors.
I am happy that the upper porch is ready and waiting
for the milder days of winter.
To have a pretty view of the porch from all rooms
of the main floor in the house is a plus!
A breath of fresh air on a cool winter’s day.
If the day is way too cold to be outdoors, I can get my fix of
blue, white and green here in the sunroom.
Have a wonderful day, spending time in a room or a place that makes you happy!
