Our New Cozy Back Porch

Hi y‘all! It has been such a long season of so many changes over here at our house and so many beautiful blessings! One of the most wonderful blessings this year was purchasing our brand new dream home! I am definitely going to share all about the journey of that with you really soon, but first I couldn’t resist giving you a sneak peek into one of my favorite parts of our new home, the beautiful back porch!!! ( You can see a video tour of when we first got the home on my Instagram highlights )

Although this space is so different than our last back yard which had the gorgeous mature trees and multilevel decks, I absolutely love this new space! I first fell in love with the outdoor fireplace (which has always been a dream of mine) and I absolutely love that it is covered with a beautiful wood ceiling and that it overlooks a gorgeous flat back yard. A flat yard is a hard thing to come by where we live, so this is a blessing! This back porch will also hopefully overlook a fabulous pool in the very near future which has also always been a dream of mine.

So now for the fun part … the decor details!!! I knew when I was designing this space I wanted a very cozy and relaxing vibe. I knew I either wanted a hanging porch bedswing or hanging chairs. You can see which I chose ? I chose to do the hanging chairs because I felt it fit this space much better. For the other large pieces in the space, I chose a fabulous outdoor sofa from Target and a chaise lounge from Restoration Hardware that I got from a friend who was moving! The outdoor coffee table is beautiful find from HomeDepot.

For the finishing touches…..
We added this amazing custom sign from FarmhouseDecorArt to the mantle we made from a plain board from HomeDepot , that we distressed and stained and we also used a few vintage corbels I had on hand to complete the mantle. Here is a link to a similar mantle already made. I absolutely love this sign and everything in her Etsy shop! I think it adds the perfect touch in this space. Her work is just incredible. It was so hard to choose which one to get!

The rug is a beautiful outdoor rug from HomeDynamics that is very easy to keep clean, which is a must outdoors! This one can easily be hosed off and it dries quickly. I also added lots of cozy pillows and candles and of course some plants!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed a sneak peek into our new home! I can’t wait to share more spaces and details with you soon!

Be blessed and never stop believing in miracles!
