Front Porch Progress

I have been making a little progress on my summer to do list! Here are a couple of photos of our front porch.

The door color is Throughbred by Ralph Lauren. (If you don't already know, use gray primer under red paint and it saves you many coats! I learned that the hard way!)

The furniture is very special to me because it belonged to my great-grandmother Louise. She was a wonderful gardener and a patient, Christian soul from what I am told. I am thrilled to have some of her neat pieces. Plus it is really comfortable!
In case you can't tell I absolutely LOVE glazed pots! I try and group them by color. Here I use all aqua / turquoise pots! Love, love them!
The prints on the wall are fun cowgirls!
Here is a fun rocking horse that I found in college. I picked it up cheap back then knowing it would come in handy someday for my kids! It has! Both girls love to ride it! It has seen many miles - ha ha.

I am linking up to My Romantic Home's Show and Tell Friday and
Funky Junk Interior's Indoor Out Party


  1. Wow I love the red and the aqua!!

    And I LOVE that furniture!! How special!!

  2. Love the many ways you've brought the turquoise in - with pots, cushions, and frames. Looks great! And yes, grey under red makes life much easier!

  3. Your front porch is BEAUTIFUL! I love the color combinations (I am such a turquoise girl these days), and what treasures you have from your great grandmother. I think I'd feel a sense of peace just sitting on them. Happy Fourth!

  4. What an inviting porch. It begs a sitting spell and a glass of iced tea or wine. The colors are so very pretty.

  5. Love your red front door! Such an inviting front porch, Kelsey. Very welcoming to any and all visitors. The turquoise pots and cushions really pop! How wonderful to have something that belonged to your great grandmother! And how wonderful that you can pass them onto your daughters!


Would love to hear from you!
