Earlier this month, we ran a post on how to design a welcoming foyer for guests, likening the foyer to a handshake. If the foyer is the handshake, your porch is the smile. Here are some tips for how to use custom beach bed swings and other Cottage & Bungalow decor to create a beautiful and comfortable porch for you and your guests.
Freshen Up Your Porch With a Custom Beach Bed Swing For the Coziest of Welcomes
Outdoor living trends have lead to a new generation of outdoor seating and furniture. One of our favorites is the Double Happiness Hanging Porch Bed. It looks and functions like a traditional porch swing with the added benefit of a comfortable mattress, ideal for napping, reading, or cuddling with kids or your significant other. From conversation to stargazing, custom beach bed swings will quickly become the favorite seat in the house.
The first step in setting up your swing is to find comfortable bedding. We like the azure Diamond Matelassé Coverlet. It’s soft enough to serve as a mattress cover and warm enough to take the chill off an early spring or late summer evening. A few decorative pillows, like our wily octopus or sea star in navy, will complement your beach house theme and can be arranged for both style and comfort. Select colorful Ironfish Art to adorn the walls and your porch is almost complete.
Last, but by no means least, our Bosc 3-Light Caged Lamps are handmade in New Hampshire.
They add an antique flair for nighttime stargazing and whether they are suspended like old-time lanterns or mounted on your porch walls, they will help to guide your scattered sailors home. You can find more beach themed porch decor in the Cottage & Bungalow online catalog.
