Hi friends! Are you ready to be inspired by the outdoors again? I have teamed up with World Market to transform my farmhouse front porch into tropical paradise perfect for summer living. I will also be sharing some amazing decorating ideas from Justina Blakeney and a fabulous giveaway! Sounds exciting doesn’t it?!!
I am usually one to stick with neutrals but not in the summer. Color and pattern excite me especially after a long winter.

The palm was a mother’s day present from my boys, so sweet!
My porch is layered with herbs, jasmine, gardenia, succulents and other tropical touches.
I was ready for summer before but now I am like “bring it on!” Who is with me?!
