Add a Rocking Chair Vignette to Your Country Porch

Rocking-ChairRocking chairs just beg to be added to your country porch look. These styles make a great way to bring back the charm and ease of a by-gone era.

Creating a Relaxing Nook

Grouping your rocking chair into a small vignette or nook will bring even more charm. Vignette’s are simply a focused area that is usually set apart from the main focus or seating area of your porch. Decorative items are added to bring about a decor theme of it’s own. Think about a small area where you can relax and read or just allow yourself some quiet time to think or reflect.

 Decorating with a Porch Rocking Chair

One of the things that we stress with a country porch look is the addition of fabric. Cushions, pillows and lap quilts all add fabric. This creates that comfort look of indoors. So first consider pillows and cushions on your rocking chair and possibly a lap quilt laid over the back of the chair. Then set a small area rug in front of the rocker. More fabric.

Next you want to consider adding a small table or bench next to your rocking chair. Besides giving you and your guests some place to set a drink while sitting in the rocking chair, you also have a way to add accent pieces.

    Rocking chairs are, by far, my favorite seat in or out of the home. They just seem to beckon me to come unwind and relax.
