Cozy up hard outdoor furniture with pillows and throws to make kicking back in your great outdoors even more enjoyable. But, to prevent damage and a musty smell, don't use indoor (especially down-filled) cushions. Instead, opt for durable outdoor-rated fabric filled with water-resistant polyfill inserts and swap in a Turkish beach towel, which dries super fast, for a standard throw.
Ceramic garden stools not only add a big boost of timeless style to a front porch seating area, their glazed surface can weather rain or sun with ease while offering up a flat perch for placing a book, snack or drink.
No matter where you live, there's no denying that the summer sun can sometimes feel relentless. Make your front porch into a relaxing oasis by rolling out a serving cart when guests arrive. Ice cold lemonade (or bubbly!) makes lounging on the porch feel like a mini vacay.
