It’s been soooo nice here the past couple of weeks and I’m finally working on getting my house and porch ready for the season. In fact, the gutters are getting a good cleaning and the house is being power washed as I write this! Also…I have baby birds in my hanging fern! They JUST hatched overnight and I’m so excited. They are the tiniest little finches and I love watching them grow up every year.
So in the spirit of porch sitting, ice tea drinking and bird watching, I created a front porch design board in the New Traditional Style. What’s New Trad, you ask? (that’s what we say in the business by the way ;/) I like to describe it as your very stylish grandmother’s home. It’s refined but never stuffy. Polished and but also relaxed. New Traditional takes the best of classic furniture shapes and lines and tweaks them to fit today’s way of living. Always comfortable, a bit eclectic, with modern patterns and clean lines. Trends are used with caution and only those with staying power make the cut.
Do you consider yourself a “New Trad?” No? I’ve got three more porch plans in my pocket for the upcoming weeks. Look out for modern, bohemian and farmhouse throughout the rest of May and June.
