For the lucky ones, who have a porch its time to embrace the space and take it to the next level, with a few of these delightful ideas. The following ideas will help your porch become the perfect, relaxing oasis to create a delightful, ethereal outdoor space.
To create the perfect vacation oasis, you want to take things into your own hands and go the minimal route. Minimal décor works great when you want to create a magical space due to it truly allowing you to embrace the square footage you have. Whether you have a lot of space or you simply don’t, going the minimal route will ensure the area feels as open as possible. The key is working with statement pieces that bring it all together seamlessly. Add a large chair, a table, or even both and keep the rest airy and chic.
Charming Palm Trees
Whether you enjoy the look of palm trees, or it’s one of your favorite patterns, it’s time to embrace it and bring it to your porch. We love the look and feel of having a blended touch of palm tree patterns perfectly paired with real plants. Bring in furniture that is made out of rattan, and pair it with palm tree patterned cushions to truly embrace the freshness this pattern tends to provide. Furthermore, add in a few small plants and your showcase will be complete.
If you have an indoor porch do not panic, you can still create the perfect porch oasis for you and your family. The way this can be done is by bringing a sofa, a smaller center table, and even a dining set to your porch and allowing the outdoor space to mesh seamlessly with the décor you have inside. It’s all about making your porch feel as outdoorsy as possible without truly being outside. Think of this area sort of like a second living room or even an additional dining space. Add a light fixture to complete the cozy aesthetic.
When in doubt, of what type of wood to use in your porch space- use pale wood. Pale wood or blonde wood is perfect for the porch due to how airy it feels. There is something about lighter shaded wood that feels very vacation-like, almost as if it will transport you to another space- a calming one. The trick is adding fresh plants to your pale wood décor, doing so will add a layer of texture without taking away from how airy the material itself is.

You want to bring simple chairs that add to your rustic approach without taking away from what you already have going on. If you can, bring in a plant or two for a dose of freshness that will work effortlessly with your rustic hint.
