  1. Lora,
    Your porch feels like a beautiful mountain retreat! It makes me want to head to Highlands, NC today! I am totally smitten with the idea of a painted hutch on our screened porch. I’m now on the hunt for one. Just beautiful!

      You will love a hutch on your porch, Christy! Happy hunting!

  2. Lora, your porch is my style! Love all the cozy touches like the quilts. And that blue hutch!! Now I’m looking for a piece from our home to put on our front porch! Pinned 😊

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Glad to send an idea your way, Cindy!

  3. Your vintage porch looks so cozy, Lora. And I love that blue china hutch! Pinned, and I’m excited to be featuring your post at Tuesday Turn About tomorrow!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Wonderful! Thanks so much, Julie:)

  4. The hutch on the porch is mind blowing!! Definitely gotta keep that one in mind. And did I see an oval minnow bucket?? I’ve never seen one before!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes! Scored that oval minnow bucket this summer and was pretty excited about it. Graphics are gone on the bucket, but I still love it:) Good eye!

  5. There are so many great ideas in this post. I love the blue cupboard on the porch. Also, I have several old quits that need mending.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, mend those treasures so they can be enjoyed; don’t overthink it:)

  6. Your fall porch has so many pretties to appreciate. The turquoise cabinet is such a fun piece and I love the crate of hydrangeas on top. I could sit out here for hours and be completely entertained! Happy fall Lora!

  7. So beautiful! I love the vibrant colors that you chose and how great they look in the space. Such creative and wonderful ideas, thank you for sharing!

  8. Have you always been so creative? You seem to take anything and make it so wonderful. Thanks for these ideas, had fun going through it all.

  9. A true country wraparound porch with seating and dining. How perfect is this. I love, love, love it and all the amazing antiques you’ve displayed. Definitely my favorite porch. Now I just wish I had one, love it all.

  10. This is my kind of porch Lora, filled with vintage and junked pieces that make it feel so cozy and homey! I love the turquoise hutch on the porch, the vibrant color is just so perfect with pumpkins, hydrangeas, corn stalks and ends of summer flowers!

  11. Your porch is so beautiful! The perfect place to spend the evening on. I love the turquoise cabinet. So beautiful.

  12. Lora, I always LOVE your photos and inspiration. My husband and I just redid a metal glider (turned it into a swing and painted gray/white) for our back porch and I created a flower arrangement in a minnow bucket for our table (thrifted, of course for $20!). Used what I had on hand.. the flowers were a bit TOO orange/red so I sprayed them lightly with some brown spray paint. Very pleased with the result! Would love to share a picture, but not sure how I could do this!

  13. I love that you decorate your porch like a room. It’s perfect that way and the coziest of cozies! Love every single detail. I think I pinned every photo! Not sure I’d ever go inside. I’d just move from chair to chair enjoying the outdoors. Thank you for joining in!

  14. Stttoppp!! That hutch out there is brilliant!!!! I LOVE all the goodies you put inside of it. SO GOOD!!! Also, a wrap around porch is such a delight…someday I’ll have one of my own 🙂 Beautiful styling, Lora!!!!
