In my neck of the woods, the weather is finally mild enough to be considered porch weather so I have Pretty Porches and Patios to Inspire on my mind. We’ll tour dozens of lovely examples for you to PIN and consider.
Do you love spending time on a porch or patio and feeling a warm breeze while you read a book, sip something delicious, or meditate? When we built our last home, it was important to us to have a screen porch, and we used it often. In our present home, I’m dreaming of adding one. Affiliate links follow and won’t cost you extra yet may earn me a small commission.
Let’s start with a little tour around my own humble home’s front courtyard and back patio. Then, we’ll enjoy pretty inspiration from Country Living, Southern Living, and House Beautiful.
Pretty Porches and Patios to Inspire
My Courtyard and Patio
I started with two inexpensive garden benches and 6 chairs like these below (great price!!!) and painted them a 50/50 combination of Farrow & Ball Cornforth White and Hardwick White. Then I found a vintage teak dining table (not shown) and painted it to unify it with the rest of the patio furniture.
My Safavieh patio chairs are comfy, and I move them around. Here is one on the front porch with a pillow and plaid throw from RH.
On my front porch – Hello Lovely Studio.
Here is one on our patio with a light blue-grey linen pillow and ivory throw from RH.
They are versatile, and if you need to add some texture to a casual living room or family room, one will do the trick.
