Front Porch Makeover: Blue Crush Color Pop

Cooling down with fresh, crisp blues is kind of like a popsicle for the eyes. Can you hear the ocean?

We admit that we love the energizing lift of blue furniture pieces and accents any time, but they’re a natural in the heat of summer. Your porch is going to love this.

Color-popping with ultra-comfortable, Neptune-hued deep-seating cushions is an easy first step. Paired with our squared rattan Essex Outdoor Seating Collection in clean, refreshing white, those blue cushions help create a classic coastal color match that feels timeless but modern  in our relaxed Blue Crush porch setting.

Play up contrasts: with the squared lines, we tried a rounded textured metal table. The linear look of the vibrant striped Tortola Outdoor Rug and those patterned  added extra graphic energy. Because we’ve mixed classic lines with unexpected modern touches like that rounded metal drum table, it’s an exceptionally fun and welcoming look that feels pulled-together, but doesn’t feel stuffy.

Adding some greenery, real or faux, can bring in more tropical or coastal charm.

For anyone with an active lifestyle, this may become the real living room until fall. Family and friends will gravitate toward a space like this where they can curl up and relax. Wet bathing suits and sandy toes are no problem for this all-weather collection. The family dog is always welcome, too; this is a happy, easy-care outdoor world.

Shop the look and create your own Blue Crush dream. Surfboard? Your own, of course. Adding your own spin with decorative accents (or even vintage elements) will make the idea even more uniquely right for you, and that’s what fun, creative front porch decorating is all about.

To note, if you’re trying this at home:  The porch dimensions are 28’ long by 12’ deep. We used only about half of that space to create the looks, which would be an area that was 12’- 14’ long x 12’ deep.

P.S. We hope you’ll share the photos with us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. We love seeing where your creativity takes you.

    1. Great point, Denise! We’ve now updated the post to include the dimensions so you can plan your own space! For quick reference, the homeowner’s porch dimensions are 28’ long by 12’ deep. We used only about half of that space to create the looks, which would be 12’- 14’ long x 12’ deep. Make sense?
