Spring Porch Tour in Full Bloom

Decorating Ideas | Home Tour | Our Current Home

Spring has officially sprung in Cincinnati! I snapped a few photos while everything is in full bloom. This is where we visit neighbors (from a comfortable social distance). And I’m pretty sure this is what my Heaven will look like.

Since we can’t go to the store, I just spruced it up a bit and used faux greenery in my window boxes.
And then this pretty flower planted herself right here for a visit :) I’m loving this time at home with my kids.

So we are enjoying all the beauty spring has to offer.

New Flowerbeds Before & After

Last September we hired a landscaping company to re-sculpt our flowerbeds. I need to clean them up again so they can look just as nice.

I want a little color so I planted some Eden roses along the trellis base of the porch. Fingers crossed that these take off this year!

I create mood boards and eDesign sketches to help me visualize the spaces that I’m working on. This video shows you how I visualize my flowerbeds looking this year. (Hopefully!) Gardening is definitely on my to-do list with social distancing being a thing. . Last year we hired @creechsgarden to update our flower beds - they look great but now the pressure is on to develop my green thumb. They are totally empty right now (see my story for a glimpse, and just how many blooms we have here in #Cincinnati). But my Eden roses survived the winter so that will be an adventure. . Virtually designing spaces is a fun hobby of mine. And today I’m giving away 2 virtual design consultations!

See our full home tour here of our “Picket Fence House”. It’s a work in progress but we are starting to turn the corner and leveling-up some of our projects.

Next I’ll be sharing an update on our master bedroom makeover that is in progress. We’ve been sleeping in our Casper mattress for a month now, so I’ll update you on how we are doing!

Hope you enjoyed a glimpse of spring here in Ohio and that everyone is staying home and doing well. Stay healthy, friends!

    OH goodness goodness, your porch and gardens are so beautiful!!! Inspirational! We just purchased a new build last August, and I’ve been trying to figure out what to plant for a peaceful place to relax, with a glass of wine ;)
    Love the flowering shrubs. Thanks for sharing!! It’s beautiful.

      Thanks Darlene…the pear trees only bloom for a short time and make quite a mess, but at their peak our neighborhood looks so beautiful. Good luck with your landscaping! I love gardening and tend to “overdo” it and buy too many plants. Trying to avoid the temptation and choose wisely this time around :)

    With the need to stay home for now it’s so nice to finally see the sunshine and feel like Spring is here early. Love the look of your street with all the flowering trees in bloom and the white picket fences. You have inspired me to get some of my patio furniture out and do some porch decorating.

    I knew you lived in Ohio but had no idea we are practically neighbors. We live outside of Oxford ( home of Miami University).
    Thanks for the inspiration and pictures of your home.

      Hi neighbor! I’m pretty sure my daughter is Miami-bound at some point. That is such a gorgeous little part of the world, I think she will fall in love with the campus. My son is going to Wright State this fall (we hope by then it’s safe). Yesterday was so windy I was convinced the pear blossoms would all blow away but they are still there. Porch sitting and decorating with what we have is about all we can do. With time in our side, just enjoy the process and take your time. Shopping with what we already have is kind of fun.

  3. Jeanette,
    Love your front porch!
    Cute little blooming flower, indeed! (wink)
    At first glance, your housing area reminded me of one in Colorado Springs.
    Beautiful place to reside!
    Looking forward to seeing your progress in the Master Bedroom.

      Thank you, Pat! She’s a cutie. We are struggling to keep her inside, lol. I wish we had more land here but the neighborhood was too cute to pass up. This house is actually larger than our last house with the tiniest lot. I can only imagine what the land in Colorado Springs would offer. So beautiful out that way!
