Ambiance of a Cottage Porch

I’ve never lived in a house with a porch. Homes with small stoops and decks were had, but no porch.  I yearn to sit in a rocking chair covered by a delightfully decorated porch roof.  Ferns hanging from the rafters and ice tea in my glass while listening to the ocean’s roar.

With Spring finally in the air, sitting outside on a covered porch has been on my mind a lot lately.  Even though porches began as a necessity before air conditioning, the thought of living in a beach home with a porch just sounds divine.  Sound good to you?

Who decided we don’t need porches anymore?  New homes seem to build decks in the back yard; but there is something so charming and welcoming in a front porch.  I love my front porch. It is a great place to just relax with a cool drink and visit with neighbors walking by.  ~ The Old Parsonage

Rockers and hydrangeas on a beautiful cottage porch…is there anything more charming?

A screened porch offers the perfect place for family meals during the summer.  Breezes and views add to the enjoyment of the meal. 

A sky blue ceiling and white walls create a superb retreat after a long day…

Dreamy….yep, that’s the word for this in our opinion.

An elegant and chic porch with a GORGEOUS water view.

But this is more our personal taste…

Sometimes simple is all you need!

Maybe you prefer a bit more tailored cottage porch?

A sun porch isn’t too bad either…

….but this porch with the perfect coastal view is superb!

Pure charm….and aren’t those Adirondack chairs with the seagull cut outs cute?

This happens to be one of our favorite porches and it’s from our friends, Layla & Kevin, of The Lettered Cottage.

And according to our Twitter friend, Sheila, of S Z Interiors, every porch must have a porch swing…

Yep, a porch swing makes this pretty darn perfect…what do you think?
