A Porch is Born


My family and I recently made the move from Hoboken, NJ to State College, PA. City life never allowed for much  any outdoor space of our own. The condo we’re now renting has a small porch that we were more than thrilled to see. I could hardly wait for the weather to warm up so that I could get myself busy decorating. All in a weekend’s work I was able to put this little ensemble together.

I first found the rug mistakenly thrown over a chair at HomeGoods and quickly threw it in my cart. I loved the print and the steal grey was a great base. We knew we wanted white rockers (don’t they always call your name as you drive by a Cracker Barrel?), and when I spotted the orange tray at TJMaxx I knew it was the perfect accent. The garden stool was also found at HomeGoods. I’ve been loving cornflower blue lately and I thought it’d fit in quite well. Another pop of orange in the cushions and a white lantern for our citronella candle (more HomeGoods finds) and you have our very first porch.







Isn’t she cute?
