This inspired front porch space features a hanging pendant, blue and yellow color palette, potted geraniums, and creeping Confederate jasmine.

Curb appeal ideas seem to about in the South. This gorgeous old home in Savannah, Georgia gets an A+ for curb appeal, so we couldn’t help but break down all of the elements that contribute to this sweet home’s charm and style. Below are some suggestions for getting this lovely look on your own.


One of the most noticeable elements of this fabulous home’s front porch is the hanging pendant light over the front door. We love the way the hexagonal shape of the pendant works with the angles in the architectural pediment. Plus the dark color really pops against the crisp, white moulding. For a similar look, we chose the Erving Collection Hanging Outdoor Black Foyer Light. It’s a dead ringer for the pendant above!

The paint colors can’t be ignored on this charming home. Though the home’s architecture is traditional, the blue and yellow color palette feels playful and young without being too over-the-top. To get this look, chose Behr’s Blue Chaise for the house paint and Glidden’s Dusty Gold for the front door.

Greenery is always a must for a front porch, and we love the way red and pink geraniums in assorted terra cotta pots are staggered all the way down the stairs. These warm colors perfectly complement the blue and yellow paint.

One of our favorite elements of this front entryway is the creeping Confederate jasmine that covers the iron pillars. Confederate jasmine is a flowering vine that can be found throughout the Southern city of Savannah, and it has the sweetest smell. What a pleasant way to welcome friends and family to your home!
