Judy’s Cozy Space

One of my favorite cozy spaces is my front porch. It is completely covered so I am lucky in that I can put fabric items out there and not worry about them getting weathered. On this porch, I have a darling light lime green bench that is antiqued down. It’s more green than the photos show.
A client of mine showed up one Christmas Eve with this as a gift for me. I have loved this bench and have used it in so many ways. I love decorating it for the seasons.
In an effort to try and not rush Spring completely, I decided to do a black linen cushion with black and white pillows. I use the same inserts for them all and just make the envelope style pillow covers so that I can change them out.
So, I ended up with three pillows – one black and white polka dot, one black and white houndstooth check and one black and white stripe with a soft green ball fringe. I added a pretty bird’s nest and a little ceramic chicken. And yes, I do leave these out all the time. Luckily, I have never had anything taken.
I have a 3′ x 7′ window next to my front door. In front of the window is this darling little antique wooden bench. My Dad came to the house one day carting this little bench. He thought I would like it and I did. It’s been on the front porch for probably 20 years.
It’s a great place to put flower pots and decor. So, I put out my violas in a McCoy piece of pottery, my tray full of miniature daffodils behind them and some crazy, corky-like plant that I got over a year ago at Ikea in another McCoy piece. I added a muted Easter Egg wreath to the vignette.
I hope you enjoy my cozy space today. Thank you for joining in on March’s “Cozy Spaces”.
