How will you use your porch the most? Will it be a gathering place for relaxing in the evening? Perhaps you want a place to listen to music or share an intimate glass of wine? Will you be entertaining on your porch? Do you want to create a private nook for reading or writing? Knowing how you will use your porch will help you select the right furniture and accessories.
A focal point can be anything from the front door itself, a beautiful wreath on your front door or perhaps a wicker table, chairs, and colorful table cloth. Or, it could be beautiful hanging baskets, a work of art (painting or sculpture), or perhaps a favorite rocker or swing. Above all, make sure your "focal point" is obvious and it should be a great conversation starter.

Mirrors are such an underused decorating piece. It really is such a versatile piece which can be used anywhere, and the fireplace mantel is not exception. If you have a large wall space over the mantel, place a big mirror with a nice frame over the mantel. Keep the mantel clutter free. With a mirror in place, you don't really need much. A mirror can also give a small room a bigger feel, which is a big plus.
