Are you surprised? I'm sure you can't believe that I actually came back and put up another post and it didn't take me months? LoL I'm trying! So back to the porch. Welcome back. Up the stairs we go.
I can see a big improvement already. I guess it couldn't have been much worse, right?
The porch re-do all started with this bench I found at Restoration Hardware. The color scheme came from the rug, which I saw by chance at Target. I always find that when you're actually looking for something you can never find it. I thought the red and orange would be a good compliment to the pink paint of my house and porch and the maroon shutters.
What?? a post??? What's that? How long has it been? beyyyyyoond a long time Welcome back. I missed you. Welcome to the StyleBurbia casa. These are the steps to my front door.
And here is my much neglected porch-random benches and all.
View of the street:
I said it was neglected. Don't judge. Random rug from old apartment.... Very comfortable chairs with cool print, but that nothing matches. I also didn't like that they kinda stuck out into the walkway.
Nice little swing. Needs some TLC.
Huge table with leaves that would be great for dinners on the porch if we ever had them. Correction- we used this ONCE for a lovely dinner on the porch never to be had again.
More random furniture....
View from the swing facing back in the direction where we started our little stroll down the porch.
I usually like to send out my seasonal trends before the season starts, but you now how it goes- Lots of real job work going on around these parts and poor StyleBurbia is suffering in my absence. At least it's still Fall and we're not up to our eyeballs in snow, right (though I did see some snow in some pictures from some of my Colorado peeps- not ready AT ALL!)?
I digress... as usual... so let's take a lookie.
Easy ways to spruce up items you may already have in your wardrobe-
animal print, leather, metallics and plaid- add a red lip and you're set.
