Get the Look: Front Porch

TREND: Modern updates for the front porch.

Does spring feel like it’s on its way to you yet? As March prepares to go out like a lamb, our thoughts often turn to sprucing up the outsides of our homes. Most houses, even the very traditional, look fantastic with a mix of modern and classic design updates like those on the front porch above. It’s an easy style to work with, and you can get a similar look with the items below. There are even two chairs to choose from: one that’s true to the inspiration image, and another to bring in even more modern style!

  3. Neutra House Numbers, Design Within Reach
  4. Braxton Outdoor Sconce, Restoration Hardware
  5. Sedona Chair with Cushion, Frontgate
  6. Penelope Lounge Chair, Room & Board
