Creating a Beach Inspired Front Porch

Whether you live steps away from the shore or miles away from the seaside, a beach inspired front porch brings the feel of a coastal retreat right to your front door.  Our front porch make-over was inspired by the colours and textures of the elements. Below is a collection of my inspiration.

1. Decorative accessories that add a coastal touch and create a sense of calm - nautical lighting, colourful weatherproof cushions and a hammock for afternoon siestas.



2. Comfortable seating - adirondack chairs, rocking chairs, or loungers in natural wood or wicker/rattan. 





3. Colour reminiscent of the sea, sand and lush palms.
