I love decorating for summer! To me, summer décor should be simple, carefree and include lots of flowers! Today I am sharing our porch and entryway simple summer décor.
I am excited to be sharing our summer décor on our front porch and in our entryway and participating in the Blogger’s Best Home Tour hosted by my sweet friend Kelly of The Tattered Pew. Every day this week, six bloggers will be sharing their summer home décor. Be sure to check out all 30 participants at the bottom of this post.
If you are coming over from The Flowering Farmhouse, welcome! I am glad you are here! I love Jennifer’s modern farmhouse style. She was also such an inspiration for me when I decided to start my own flower farm!

Our Simple Summer Front Porch
We spend a lot of time on our front porch. From coffee in the mornings to Yahtzee games before bed, if we are sitting still it’s usually on the porch. We lived here for 11 years before we finally added the porch on so we’re making up for lost time enjoying it! I have shown our porch decorated for spring here, for fall here and here and for Christmas here. Now I am happy to show you it decorated for summer!
We recently traded out our traditional style rockers for this Better Homes and Gardens Roxbury set from Walmart. I love the weathered look and of course, the light aqua chair pads. It comes with a cute table too!
The indoor/outdoor rug was a fb marketplace find. I love the pop of bright teal it adds to this space. When it gets dirty, I just use the pressure washer to clean it. I wish every rug I owned was that easy to clean!
To fill in the space between our front windows, I hung this rusty metal plant hanger that I have had for years. I love that it has three tiers. The terra cotta pots are a fun contrast to all the greenery in them.
A cute lemon basil (it smells so amazing!), a potted coleus and a small pot of thyme sit on one side of our porch swing.
On the other side of the swing are a couple pots full of flowers and sweet potato vine. The porch is the best spot for potted plants so I don’t forget to water them!
There’s always at least one vase of fresh flowers on our porch. It’s one of the perks of being a flower farmer!

Simple Summer Entryway
Right off our front porch is our entryway. This is a fun and easy spot to decorate.
You may recognize the artwork. It gets moved around between this space, the opposite wall in the living room and the dining room wall. Things don’t stay in one place long around here!
When you live near the beach, you need an easy spot to drop your treasures when you get home. This cute wooden dough bowl is the perfect size for beach finds. Every couple of months, I go through and separate the sea glass, shark teeth and other shells into other containers.
I like to keep things I use often close at hand. I reference these gardening books often. It’s a plus that they look so cute in my gathering basket.
Forsythia branches aren’t just pretty in the spring when they are flowered. They make great vase fillers with their leaves too and they last a long time.
Purple hydrangeas add a pop of color. You really can’t have too many hydrangeas, right?
That’s it for our summer porch and entryway. Next week I will be sharing our pergola and living room decorated for summer.
