Things We Love: Outdoor Living

Good morning, chic readers! We love being outside. Outdoor entertaining is one of our favorite things about this fabulous season.

And we can always use a little porch inspiration!

Whether your porch is neutral or bright, has wicker furniture, wrought iron or teak, we can all agree on one thing: It should be comfortable!  We believe that outdoor spaces should coordinate with indoor ones, be an extension of the home’s decor–but, perhaps, with a touch more color and whimsy.

Then again, neutral surroundings that let the natural beauty shine are fabulous as well.

 Needless to say, these stunning photos have done nothing to cure our need for outdoor living! Are you sprucing your porch?
