Here are a bunch of beautiful porches -- front porches, back porches, indoor porches, and outdoor porches -- to get you inspired to use your lovely porch this summer.
Bright pillows, cushions, and some colorful decor items can be all it takes to freshen up your porch for summertime living and enjoyment.

Photo from going home to roostHere's a lovely and colorful back porch. Love the pops of color and the paper lanterns, and all that lovely daylight surely turns into a pretty starry night backdrop. (See the Before and After porch makeover on going home to roost.)
