Guest Post ~ Arcadian Home Blog

As you may all know, my family and I are between homes while waiting for our house to be built. The progress is not fast enough for us, but, it is coming along. Our new house will have a front porch, and the space was one of the areas that I was thinking about how to decorate. All the pictures are so pretty, but I have to say my most favorite is the last one.:) Enjoy the post!


Hello, all! I'm so excited to be here with you at Tea Rose Home today with a guest post from Arcadian Home blog. It's a fabulous place to find interior design inspiration including great decorating ideas for everything from beautiful buffet lamps to colorful accessories and rugs for the floor.

Nothing says summer in the South better than images of having iced tea on the quintessential southern porch, but today we're seeing lots of new homes from Maine to California that also have these wonderful outdoor spaces. Today, to fuel your daydreams of summer on the porch I've brought along photos of eight beautiful and inviting porches. Please enjoy!

Summer Porch

Though this wooden porch is definitely not in the South, it could rival any of those iconic wrap-around beauties with its simplicity and stunning view.

Speaking of wrap-around beauties, this screened in space is porch perfection with black wicker furniture and lots of room for dining, relaxing and entertaining. It's at once very traditional yet updated with contemporary lamps and rugs.

Another screened in porch has also grabbed our attention. A stylish yet comfortable space, this outdoor room is a wonderful mix of blues and grays.

This rustic sun porch is a captivating combination of natural materials, soft textiles and contemporary outdoor lighting fixtures. Did you notice the ceiling fan with its sailcloth blades?

Paradise in the desert. Paradise Valley, Arizona, is where you'll find this cool shaded retreat. What a wonderful place to spend summer on the porch.

A screened in porch goes whimsical with pink and orange cushions on bright yellow wrought iron furniture. My favorite element is the lime green floor lamp—just what every summery porch needs.
