Winter White Porch

Many of your are already decorating for Valentine’s Day but I’m still embracing winter in my neck of the woods. Around here winter lasts for a while and often includes some snow up until March,  so I thought I’d put together a Winter White Porch to last me until spring time. I just couldn’t stand having a bare porch until then!

I wanted to put together a rustic winter white space that was welcoming and true to my style. To create the look I mixed crisp white with natural elements including burlap, pine cones, branches and greenery. I mainly used things I had around the house and added a few simple DIY projects.

To the left is a display of galvanized buckets I got from my grandma filled with pine cones and logs. The branch display was made with fallen branches from the woods behind our neighborhood, wrapped in jute. And the stars are basic metal stars spray painted white.

These burlap topiary trees were my latest DIY project and I’m so excited about how they turned out. They are a little out of my comfort zone but I like to stretch myself and I’m glad I did (tutorial coming soon). And the best of all they will transition perfectly into spring.

I shared my Pine Cone Wreath with you all last week, if you’ve been around a while you’ll notice that this wreath has made an appearance through the last few months. You can see the fall version here and the Christmas version here.

And off to the right is a cozy sitting area filled with my Hand Painted Burlap Pillow and Two-Tone Welcome Sign.

And throughout the porch I added a few recycled jars filled with Epsom and candles. It adds a little touch of a winter wonderland feel. Maybe they will be a good luck charm for more snow this year :)

    Your porch is always stunning Taryn!! My mouth dropped when I saw it! Very welcoming.. I think if I drove past your house I would hit a mailbox because I would be staring so hard at how beautiful your porch is haha

    This is just gorgeous Taryn! I am jealous. We get so much snow that I can’t leave anything pretty on my porch or it gets ruined. I just might have to use some of your ideas inside! :)

    I love that your home is painted gray and light taupe. It’s so nice that it blends seamlessly with your interior. Mine is brown and theres not much I can do about it due to HOA rules so it’s something I’ll have to adapt to. :-( Your porch set up is beautiful! I bet your neighbors are so happy to have you pretty up the block every season!!

    Wow! Your porch looks lovely! Unfortunately I live in a part of the country where my porch is naturally winter white—covered in snow! Ha ha. Thanks for sharing!

    My fingers are doing the walking tonight but now where I want them to go. Lost my comments.
    Love your front porch, it’s so pretty and yet not cluttered. It’s gorgeous. You have a definite knack for everything you do gal. Sure do enjoy your blog.
    I’m looking forward to tutorial for burlap topiaries. They look complicated but hope they’re not. Love the color scheme you have going.
    We have plenty of snow this year along with very cold for weeks now. Can’t put things our on our porch or back deck as a certain furry kid loves to play with my decorations, and that’s besides what the weather does. He is such a dear boy tho, it’s hard to scold him. It’s a challenge to figure out ways to decorate without him getting them. He’ s 4yrs. old, 72lbs. of black lab/border collie. HE loves the snow so much and the cold, he’ll stay outside in it for hours.

    I love those burlap topiaries… so excited for the tutorial! The Welcome sign looks awesome there. You’re inspiring me to try to dress up my porch a little.

    So, so cute! I love winter decorating! Valentine’s Day kind of takes over after Christmas, but I love to spend January in winter mode. Thanks so much for sharing! I LOVE the snowflake pillow! Have a great day!
