I love porch decor! It always looks so nice as I pull into the driveway each night. Changing it up with the seasons is an easy way to freshen it up (and a great excuse to give it a quarterly cleaning). Here are some ideas for a fun spring update (on a budget!).
Idea 1: Layered Rugs
This has got to be one of the hottest trends in porch decor right now. Instead of just a simple doormat, add a larger rug underneath for color and pizzaz! The bottom rug should be a simple pattern (stripes and geometrics work especially well), then you can layer a mat on top. PRO TIP: Because it has a frame, this is a great way to use a mat with a funny phrase that won't take over your whole design. People love comedic door mats!
Idea 2: Statement Piece
No matter what you are decorating, you should always have a "wow" moment to attract the eye. Maybe it's an art piece or a big color pop. Or it could be a unique large-scale decor item or a great plant. Whatever you use, it should be eye-catching a little dramatic! PRO TIP: No need to break the bank on something pricey - look around the house and see what you can reuse! I've seen amazing wow pieces using old bicycles, teacarts, or even old ladders. There are so many options! I loved this photo of the old chair seat replaced with primroses. :)
Idea 3: Always a Sign
I've seen the affection for the porch leaner come and go over the years, but I still think a sign definitely has a home on the porch. You can easily work a fun sign into a display. Chalkboard options are always fun, and you can change the wording with the seasons. PRO TIP: One trend I'm seeing is integrating the "sign" into the display. For example, you could have a large flower pot and stencil the word "welcome" on the side. It's a great way to include lettering in a fresh way
