So this spring, since I can't afford anything else, I am going to decorate the screened porch. My budget for the entire room is $400. Think we can do this? YES! Because thank the universe it's garage sale season :)
As I've already told my friends, I am totally digging the Bohemian - Moroccan look. It's a decor style that I haven't played with much. I have overdone the New England beach theme, and while I totally love it, I just don't see it working in the porch.
The actual structure of the porch is a dark wood. I do NOT want to paint it, that would require a lot of touch ups for the rest of my life so that option is out. There isn't too much light that comes in, as it is on the shady side of the house, so I'll need to achieve a more fresh hippie look. To do this I plan to play primarily in my favorite greens, blue and turquoise, while bringing in funky purple, maroon with orange and yellow patterns. The fun part is the room can be super colorful! I just don't want it to end up being dark.
So I have a fun collection of decor pictures on my Pinterest.
Here is the porch now. All it has is a plastic picnic table and two awesome wood benches.
I'll also need a rug, some curtains, a pendant lamp and lots of incense :)
So now you know what I'm up to! I'm going to be back on here blogging and blabbing about our home and fun parties that I plan to have a BLAST hosting this summer! You are all invited! I just ask that if you come up to see me in Vermont that you stop by my store in Williston. You don't even know what you're missing!
