A big reason we fell in love with our house when we first saw it was because it had an enormous screened-in porch. On breezy days it’s a perfect place to relax and enjoy some family time. We purchased the red sectional when we first moved into our house, and stopped there. The rest of the room fell short on style!
It was a good piece of furniture in a room with great potential!
Here’s what we started with. It wasn’t bad by any means, it just wasn’t great. So we lived with it for a while until we decided it was time to spruce it up!
I shopped, DIYed and added pieces that I absolutely loved. Piece by piece, the room really started to come together.
And here’s what it looks like now!
The first thing we did was add an area rug – it really brightened up the space and made it feel “cozier”.
Have you looked at Minted’s “Home” Line? I’m obsessed! All three of these pillows are from Minted. I LOVE mixing prints and Minted has so many beautiful prints to choose from- it’s hard to pick just a few!
This table and chairs fits our space so well, and matches the mood of our porch perfectly. The table runner is from Minted, too (told you I love their Home Line!)

I wanted to hang planters to give the space some color, bring in some “outdoor decor” and also draw the eye up, since I love the ceiling so much! You can find this DIY Hanging Planter tutorial here. They are filled with Faux Ferns from Afloral (low maintenance and always in bloom!)
Here’s one last look at the room as a whole. What do you think?
I think it’s time for me to relax and enjoy the space and a cocktail! 😉
