A metal gable porch roof with exposed beams keeps with the country farmhouse style of the exterior. Red Tolix chairs, a glowing, barn-style pendant light, and pots overflowing with vibrant green plants create an inviting entrance.
English Country Home Exterior with Purple Hydrangeas
As if it were straight from storybook, this quintessential home comes complete with a sloping slate rooftop and stone pathway. Purple hydrangeas provide a pop of color to the otherwise simple landscaping.
Teal blue board and batten paneling give this farmhouse a fresh, funky look. Concrete slabs and gravel create a contemporary, minimal pathway to the front door. A red Adirondack bench serves as a plant holder.
A majority of the porch's outdoor decor was sourced from antique stores and flea markets in rural areas. To create moments of pause, vignettes were arranged with an assortment of shapes, finishes and textures to keep the porch feeling one-of-a-kind and collected.
Although the winter months are cold, it's nice to sit outside and enjoy the bright winter light on warmer days. Create a welcoming vibe in your outdoor dining area by dressing up chairs with throw blankets your guests can use to snuggle up and keep warm with over a cup of tea or coffee.
With stacks of firewood, two lounge chairs and a couple of lanterns, this corner of the backyard is positively enchanting. An industrial-style fence prevents the kiddos from wandering out of sight as well.
