Pack your Porch with Style

There are several styles to choose from when designing your porch space. First, determine whether you prefer a vintage/rustic style, or a trendy/modern look. You can’t go wrong with a shabby-chic canvas paired with natural wood details. For the contemporary designer, consider a vivid print with playful imagery.

Outdoor Color Inspiration

The colors you choose will set the stage for the rest of your interior decor. The front porch is the first space your guests will see, so take advantage of the opportunity to welcome friends and family into your unique space. You can decorate with neutral shades or bold hues depending on the mood you want to convey.

White Porch Ideas

A light-toned porch with white details represents a sleek, clean space. You can go modern or traditional with this foolproof shade. Try a piece of wall art with trendy typography for a minimalist look with a twist.

Black & Cyan Porch Ideas

On the opposite side of the spectrum, black can make a stunning visual impact on your front porch. If you’re looking for a color to contrast the black while still looking cohesive, consider a blue-green shade like cyan or turquoise.

Porch Decor: Pro Tips

Interior design expert Elimar Lobo Sáenz supports the turquoise trend:

“Turquoise, a blend of light blue and green, has tropical undertones that bring to mind the cooling properties of the ocean and can instantly transport you to a relaxed day on the beach. It is said that turquoise represents a desire to make your own way in the world, under your very own terms.”

Porch Wall Art: Size Options

Follow this handy passage from our Ultimate Wall Art Size Guide to help you select the right size canvas for your porch:

Your wall art should take about 60% to 75% of the available empty wall space. Measure the height and width of the wall. Now, multiply the measurements by both 0.6 and 0.75. As a result, you will get the range of canvas print sizes to suit the space.

For instance, if your blank wall is 9 feet tall and 5 feet wide, multiply 9 by 0.6 to get the low end of the ideal height range. Then multiply 9 by 0.75 to get the high end of the ideal height range. Do the same for your wall's 5 feet width. The ideal height of the canvas would be 5.4 feet - 6.75 feet and the ideal width would be 3 feet - 3.75 feet.

Wine-Themed Wall Decor

Wine wall art can be a great addition to your porch decor, as it can add a touch of effortless elegance and sophistication to the space. There are tons of different styles of wine wall art to choose from. It’s super easy to find something that fits your personal taste and complements the existing decor on your porch. One popular option is to go for a rustic-inspired space with wine-related phrases or imagery. For example, you might choose a cheeky phrase that says “Wine a little, laugh a lot.” You can also opt for a more classic vineyard landscape print. Create a classic environment in your outdoor space and celebrate your love for good wine. Alternately, you can go with a more contemporary print if your goal is to create a modern exterior. The possibilities are endless. Choose a piece of wall art that features red, white, or rosé wine! These prints can be a great way to add some color and visual interest to your porch or patio, and they can easily be swapped out as seasons (or your tastes) change. No matter what type of wine wall art you choose, this collection can be a great way to add some personality and style to your outdoor area.
