Creating A Fabulous Front Porch
It is that time year that you need a fabulous front porch and entrance. I mean, with Halloween on the way the amount of trick or treat traffic you will have, not to mention the guests you may be hosting for the upcoming holidays. You really will want to put your best foot forward. So for this Get A Room, I address the front entryway and porch area. I realize that we all have different size and shape front porches, so I am just going to add a few of my favorite pieces and items that will help to dress up your front porch, stoop or breezeway. Feel free to check out how we updated our own front porch over the summer at our recent post, Dressing Up Your Front Porch.

Garden Urns & unique planters always make your entryway inviting. Especially since you can plant them with seasonal flowers or other holiday greens. Here is list of containing a few of my favorites in all different styles to match your home and personal style. My only recommendation is to go with a lighter colors to preserve your flowers delicate root system in the hot summer months. Traditionally if you choose a darker color like black or charcoal gray you will have a tendency to scorch the roots of your plants, especially if the urn will be placed in the direct sun or if you live in a hot sunny climate like I do here in Georgia.
Front Door Allure:
One of the main things most people see as they visit your home is your front door. Therefore, you want to make sure it is painted or stained and looking good at all times. You can also dress it up for the holidays of just keep it simple, but a well dressed door is a statement for what your guest can expect from the rest of your home. It truly sets the stage, so make sure that you are sending the right signals.
What is GET A ROOM: Each month I will provide my followers with a free Vision Board complete with all the links to recreate the room in their own home. It will all be designed, matched and balanced to create a perfect room every time. All you have to do is know your room dimensions for windows, rugs and furniture pieces. Think about those box cosmetics and fashion subscriptions, it is the same idea but no charge to my followers.
Why is it FREE: First and foremost I LOVE Interior Design. I have decided, that while I personally love Industrial Farmhouse Chic and Farmhouse design, which is uber hot right now; I know it is not everyone’s cup of tea. As an Interior Designer I can appreciate all forms of home decor and I wanted to provide some of my other creative visions. Then, make them available to my followers, for free. Also, I get a lot of inquires about interior design for specific types of rooms and yes I can still do some custom design work. However, I felt like this was the quickest platform to package a few universal designs and you might be able to find a design that works for you, that you just love.
