Tips For Decorating Your Front Porch from Black Designers

Tips For Decorating Your Front Porch from Black Designers

The front porch of one’s home is normally the only vision individuals see when they pull into your driveway. Despite the waterfall in the center of the yard or the pets that greet you as you drive in slowly, the porch is what leads you right in into your guest home. Many times it is the bright color door that takes your eye and other times it is just the plants that are arranged so seamlessly across the banister. However, in a southern belle and southern beau home there is never a time where an eye will miss the front porch of a home filled with southern tradition and decor esthetic.

Since Southern Belles & southern beaus are known for their front door decor style, it is imperative that we share ways that you and other Black Southern Belles or Beaus can fix up their Spring and Summer front porch decoration and styling. 

Pink & Pine Co.

This Louisiana based designer  teaches women about how to start do it yourself projects (DIYS) and provides design skills to create a home that reflects your personal style. Whether this is creating functional items or renovating some older items;  Pink & Pine Co.CEO & Founder; Elizabeth is always willing to share behind-the-scenes of her own home renovation process and is sure that someone, somewhere can relate to her southern design inspiration. Being borned and raised in the South; Elizabeth loves to entertain and understands hospitality. With this being said, the founder of Pink & Pine Co has a quick tip that can help us prepare our front porch for guests arrival and your own personal satisfaction.

Elizabeth of Pink & Pine Co Front Porch Design Tip

“One staple item that every front porch needs is a door wreath. It adds a warm and welcoming touch to your home which is the foundation of true southern hospitality. With spring right around the corner, consider wreaths with faux foliage and florals.”

As a southern belle myself; I challenge you to create a DIY wreath design and share with us your thoughts and design finishing product by hashtagging #frontporchdiybsb

ZE Haus

As a licensed interior design firm; ZE Haus is the place where you can find inspiration for designs and the works and advice from founder; Kenzie Leon Perry. As a black-owned business based in Miami, Florida; vibrant, standout, and one-of-a-kind are a few ways to describe the energy this firm gives off and the energy the advice from Kenzia Leon Perry provides. 

Perry knows that the first thing one notices on the front porch of anyone’s home is the front door. Besides the color and design setting the tone for the interior space, the front door contributes to the curb appeal of the exterior landscape and draws guests into your home.

Kenzie Leon Perry of Ze Haus Front Porch Design Tip

Therefore, Perry is always encouraging and suggesting that when revamping your front porch, take inventory of what you currently have and consider using spray paint on any existing furniture and accessories to create a different feel and aesthetic. Don’t overdo it by shopping for more items; use what’s readily available, affordable, and comes in a variety of colors.

Kenzie takes it one step farther and encourages “a large flower pot as a must have for any front porch.” He mentions that it can be used to place seasonal flowers and plants or converted to a side table or bench for other functional needs. His southern instincts tell him that this presence adds character and charm to the entry.

We hope that these two southern business owners of design blogs and firms can help you shape your Spring front porch decor. If you need more inspiration; feel free to check out Pink & Pine Co. or Ze Haus on instagram for more visuals and brainstorming sessions.
