Summer Porch Inspiration

June is just a week away and it’s time to start thinking about summer living!  Summer is my favorite season because I love the warmth and sunshine. And one of my favorite places to enjoy warm breezes is on a summer porch. To give you some fresh ideas and inspiration, I’ve collected a round-up of open air and screened porches. I think you’ll enjoy them all!

We start with one of my favorite screened-in porches at Doreen’s home who blogs at Hymns and Verses. I love her vintage porch furniture in light colors. Even the curtains are charming!

Here’s my front porch with flowers neatly planted. I love sitting out here – especially in the morning while the world is waking up.

I like to keep it simple and pared down during the summer.

Christy at Our Southern Home has a gorgeous screened porch with its brick wall and arched French doors. Isn’t it lovely?  It really has that southern vibe.

If you like a more rustic vibe, you’ll love this charming porch from Hood Creek Log Cabin.

You can’t go wrong when you decorate a summer porch with wicker furniture. Add a stained glass window and you’ve got the perfect porch like this one from Two Bees in a Pod.

Nesting with Grace proves that a porch doesn’t have to be expansive to make a memorable impression. She wisely uses the space to create a welcoming porch.

Screened-in porches create a bug-free zone for dining outside during summer months. Linda at It All Started with Paint shares her cozy Chicago porch.

Another beautiful screened porch decorated by Jennifer at Chronicles of Home creates a comfortable space for enjoying lazy summer afternoons. Bamboo shades can be drawn at night to provide privacy from neighbors.

Sometimes the simplest of porches are the most endearing. And every front porch should have at least one rocking chair (or glider or swing)!

Transform a small corner of your porch into a cozy reading nook or place to enjoy coffee. You really don’t need a lot of space.

And if you do have an expansive porch – be sure to enjoy it as much as possible!  Especially if it has an amazing view like this one!

  1. So many pretty porches and so many good ideas! I like the collage so I can pin everything at one time. Hubs overwintered some of the porch flowers in the greenhouse and they are now residing on the summer porch. He started some flowers in the greenhouse and we are blessed with lots of nurseries and big box stores close by for annuals and perennials.

  2. I grew up with a metal glider and rocker like Doreen’s. It’s on my outside home decor “bucket list.”
    I love your simple and pared down summer porch. I think it is your best porch yet!

  3. Nothing is quite as sweet as sitting on the front porch on a lazy summer day. I wish everyone could have one 🙂

  4. Marlene Stephenson says:

    This was a most enjoyable time spent looking at all these great porches, thanks and have a great holiday.

  5. thank you so much for sharing my front porch. it’s actually going through some growing pains right now and I am making some changes. our newest stray that showed up keeps chewing the arms to the wicker chairs so I moved them and need to look for something else that’s dog proof!

  6. gorgeous ! thanks !
