A Screened Porch Refresh (reveal)...


Hey guys, we power washed our screened porch over the week-end and I'm finally ready to share pictures of this space all freshened up for Spring!  If you'll remember I wanted to give our screened porch a new look with a few new well chosen accessories.  

Here's my inspiration photo below....

Yup, I saw these Pottery Barn Awning Striped Pillows and was smitten!  So here's our screened porch all gussied up for warm weather relaxing and entertaining too.

These candles votives were such a great find!  I snagged them from Old Time Pottery here in Charlotte.  I've also seen them at Michael's.   We also plan to hang white string lights in this space, very excited for that!

 This porch swing is one of my favorite seats in the house - especially on warm Summer evenings!  Ideally i'd like a swing with cleaner and more modern lines.  More specifically I think a bamboo swing would be Awesome here.  However this swing is such a quality piece and comfortable too, I just can't bear to part with it.

While I'm loving the graphic black and white stripes in the new pillows.  I knew this space would need a fun pop of color too.  Enter this pretty little coral pillow I've had for a few years now.  

These neutral tan cushions actually aren't original with this Target outdoor furniture set.  I purchased them from Garden Winds.  Garden Winds sells replacement patio cushions for most outdoor patio furniture sets - including sets purchased from Target, Lowe's, Home Depot, JC Penney, Costco, Sam's and more.

Ahhh, and there's the back side of our brick colonial home.  Now for me, when it comes to outdoor design, one thing I love is fun and colorful outdoor spaces.  However sometimes it just makes sense to take a more neutral and sophisticated path.  

That's what I've done here.  We've got a classic brick home, with neutral outdoor furnishings, graphic black and white awning striped pillows...and even a traditional porch swing!  Now all we need is a nice cold pitcher of homemade lemonade ;)  

Happy Spring!

  1. Oh I love your black and white scheme. Gorgeous. I think we really need to screen in our porch, it would make such a difference. Yours is amazing.

  2. Thank you Marty!! We really love ours. The only downside to screened porches is they get soooo dirty!!

  3. Jane I love what you did with your screened in porch! The black and white is so fresh and really a great neutral backdrop for whatever accent color you want to bring in over the years (coral is so pretty in there!) I'm so envious of your porch, I want one badddddly!!! Enjoy it my friend.

    1. Thanks Lisa!! Appreciate you stopping by :)
