Marty believes that your porch should reflect the style of your home.

Since her home's architecture is simple, she chose porch furniture to complement that. Simple, clean lines.

Southwest porch designs normally use simple lines and natural colors. You don't have to do a lot to get dramatic results.


Southwest decorating ideas

Marty confesses that her front porch was in sad shape (above). [Hardly sad, in our humble opinion.] Her rocking chairs needed to be refinished and adding some color in just the right spots would help also.

Her Chinese stool from Big Lots needed painting and the plant has overstayed its welcome!

She then applied walnut stain and covers that with two coats of clear gloss.

Marty added new vibrant plants, colorful cushions, and as another easy decorating idea, a whimsical frog - just for fun! Very cute little frog.

Some finishing touches - a gorgeous front door wreath.
Mary likes to keep her entranceway simple and clean. We love it.

Marty's finished porch - real inviting and ready for guests to relax and enjoy a glass of iced tea. Mary lives in the desert so take notice of her front porch landscaping. She chose native desert plants that require little water. Very beautiful!
