Peek inside Front Porch Studio

Often times you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince, well this same adage held true for me during my quest for a web designer.


I have been through 4 web designers these last couple of months and had yet to find the perfect fit! I would totally recommend all 4 to other people, but for me we just didn’t mesh well together.


A couple of weeks ago I was filled with tears after another failed attempt with a web designer and at my witt's end trying to figure out how I was going to get my business site launched and get a new look to the blog!


Enter Front Porch Studio which is run by Jessica Graves editor of The Love List one of my favorite blogs. We hit it off right away and after seeing some pictures of her studio I’m certain that we are a perfect fit!


Here is a little peek into the studio:


Fun Kate Spade Sequin flats by FrontPorchStudio.

{Ah Kate Spade ballerina flats! Totally a girl after my own heart.}

Coffee table by FrontPorchStudio.

{I spy a Rubie Green pillow in one of my favorite patterns!}

Inspiration board by FrontPorchStudio.

{Talk about an inspiration board. I just wanted to grab everything through the computer screen!}

Sofa and cofee table by FrontPorchStudio.

{Elephants are one of my favs so it was great to see that Jess agrees! How cute is her little guy on the coffee table!}

Desk by FrontPorchStudio.

{Good girl with a touch of zebra brought into the room by the book, I MARRIED ADVENTURE.}

Desk area by FrontPorchStudio.

{Ghost chair! Enough said. Totally sealed the deal that we are meant to work together.}

Magnolia Stationery by FrontPorchStudio.

{Not only does Jess do web design, but her design services include stationary and invites as well.}


I think you can tell by seeing a peek into her studio that this will be my final web designer to work with. I’m so excited to see everything come together. We’ll be working on the business site first and then moving onto the blog re-vamp!

Hi there, so finally you found the right fit!I totally empathise having had the same happen, 1 designer I signed up with took what I had offline, with out saving my exsisting site, leaving me with nothing and vanished into thin air!I even paid for my husband and myself to go on a course to learn how to design our own, but it was the first time it was being run and needless to say money was thrown down the drain and us guinea pigs did'n't enjoy the ride!! We have elephants in common too by the way,any who am now on the write path hopefully and 5th time lucky! Fingers crossed for us both!!!Its a great feeling when it all comes together! Sharon xxxoo

Given that I'm sitting in my "studio" aka cubicle at work--I am pretty sure I would give almost anything to have a workspace this serene, chic, and inviting. It would make doing actual work SO much easier!
