Outdoor Living Space Ideas

Ideas For Your Front Porch And More



We have some outdoor living space ideas to share with you from Tracy Porter. Tracy's videos are fun to watch - she's elegant and yet very down-to-earth at the same time.


Dave and I like Tracy's ideas and we want to share them with you.

Outdoor living today is much like years ago: Bring the inside out and make a comfortable space outdoors that reflects how you like to live indoors: comfortable, functional with some splashes of fun.



Tracy Porter's Outdoor Living Space Ideas

Tracy Porter's videos have some refreshing thoughts on how to make your outdoor space a place you long to enjoy. Tracy, her hubby and four boys practically live on their porch in the summer, so she brings you fun and practical ideas.






Summary of Tracy's video

In case you cannot watch it...

Whether you have a porch, a screened porch, deck, patio or any kind of outdoor space, make it comfortable. Make it livable like the way you live in doors. The more comfortable it is, the more you will want to spend peaceful times there. So, here are Tracy's outdoor room ideas from the video...


Wooden desk for porch
Tracy brought a bamboo desk from inside her home to her porch.
It gives her porch a cottage kind of feeling.



Inside the wooden porch desk
See the useful items Tracy keeps in the desk: candles, matches and flags
Other ideas are a crossword puzzle book, a tablet and some pencils.



outdoor room ideas
Playing cards, dice and board games are always fun for your outdoor room.
Keep them handy for when your family wants to play.



Box of tissues on wooden porch desk
Pretty napkins in an elegant box - very "Tracy Porter".
Maybe tuck in some coasters, too. Or a box of tissues.



Details of knick knacks on wooden porch desk
She included some sweet and personable items like this colorful green lantern and bright blue dish.



Lit candles on top of wooden porch desk
Take a closer look. The blue dish is filled with river rocks, a couple lit candles and a memorable little bird.



Basket holding magazines
A basket of magazines, paperbacks or kids' books is nice to keep handy.



Wooden rocking chair
Colorful pillows and a soft throw make this a nice spot to sit - even on chilly mornings or evenings.



Framed picures hanging on porch walls
Tracy hung attractive artwork on the wall. A mirror would work, too. Or perhaps you have a collection to hang.

Bring some nature to your porch. Tracy planted pansies and kale in this pot. Neat combination, don't you think?
