With all of the gorgeous summer nights we get to experience here in San Diego, I’ve been thinking about redesigning my front porch to be able to enjoy each sunset from the comfort of my own home. There are so many ways to design a beautiful and functional porch regardless of how large or small your area may be. Do you prefer to lounge out front in a rustic Adirondack chair? Or perhaps cozy up to a nest or hammock? There are so many options to choose from that can work in even the smallest of porches!
My husband and I live right by the beach, and love to spend our evenings outside grilling and enjoying the evenings from our porch. Having a smaller area to work with, we’ve been looking for the perfect little bistro set to have a drink and some munchies on without using up too much space!
These hanging nests are so fun and look just absolutely cozy!
If you’re looking for something more traditional, you can never go wrong with paired rockers. Brighten it up and add some personal style for each season with fun pillows like these!
When I see nests as comfortable-looking as this, I just want to curl up with a good book for hours, don’t you?
Personally, I’m a huge fan of whites and neutrals in the home, and I especially love the fresh, bright look it gives this porch. I love the way they incorporated a little pop of color with that gorgeous turquoise bench!
Always a favorite, Kouboo knows how to add some serious style to a porch! If you prefer to lounge in the backyard, try making a bold statement with tropical plants out front!
I love this idea for a family beach house. Although they are the same style rocker, the differing colors add a fun edge- not to mention that each person can pick their own color.
If you like the hanging nest, add a little uniqueness with a design like this seahorse or a hanging bench with funky throw pillows!
