Screened Porch Decorating...

Since the rooms inside our home are VERY transitional right now, I thought I would show one room outside of the home that was semi-finished shortly after moving in.  After scoring an amazing deal on the furniture for our screened porch, I then had to decide what colors to go with for pillows and accent pieces.  Wanting a change, and knowing I could go a little crazy-town with color and get away with it on an outdoor porch, I went with lime green and cobalt blue.

The garden stool was an old World Market purchase that never really matched anything in our home...but I loved it anyway.  The ikat and chevron pillows were made by my mom after we snagged the fabric on the cheap (we've actually added one more chevron bolster pillow to the couch since this picture was snapped).  The lanterns and artichoke were TJ Maxx finds.

Again, the bamboo shade hanging in the background fell during the big storm we had here, so that has since gone to the dump.

We honestly haven't been able to enjoy the porch as much as we'd like to with the colder weather, but we are hoping it will be a nice reading/hang out spot where the pup can feel a part of the action.  I'd still like to drape some hanging lights and eventually change out the ceiling fan, but that will be on down the road.  Bigger fish to fry, friends.

So that's one update down with many more to go!
