Are you ready for the coming summer? And in some regions summer is already here! That is why decorating your veranda for the summer is very timely. Choose the style you like: rustic, shabby chic, modern, traditional or Scandinavian and start creating! For a shabby chic porch, you need shabby chic furniture, statuettes, flowers, and candle holders. I love rustic verandas with wicker furniture, potted flowers, antlers and cozy textiles. Beach and sea-inspired verandas are all the rage. So take out corals, seashells, starfish, and add wicker or simple white furniture. Bright colors and lots of green plants and flowers are great for any summer porch. Let your imagination run wild and enjoy cocktails on your veranda!
Choose a suitable color scheme for your summer porch – will it be a colorful or neutral room? If you love neutrals, go for layered neutrals – they look very contemporary and chic and are currently trending. If you want to turn the lights on, try red, light blue, green and yellow for a zesty touch, pink and purple for a girly feel, and so on – there are many combinations and ideas you can implement.
The furniture should match your porch style: rustic, vintage, boho, farmhouse, modern, contemporary or shabby chic. Wicker and rattan furniture are a timeless idea that goes well with many decorative styles. You can also add pieces of wood. If it’s a boho space, consider a hammock and possibly a macrame chair.
Accessories and decorations
First, add potted greens and blooms – it’s summer and you should freshen up the space as much as possible. Printed pillows and rugs can add color to the porch, and candle lanterns and lights make the space very cozy. Add a touch of the chosen style to make the porch cooler and brighter and enjoy the summer!
