The stone fireplace creates a focal point, adds a heat source, and visually links the porch with the rock columns inside. The fireplace is practical and stunning. Flanked by container-columns which hold chopped wood, it is a year-round focal point for the room, and in winter it becomes a practical feature, ensuring that no one will need to go outside to chop wood in the col weather. The light-wood furniture is arranged in a U formation to create an optimal seating arrangement for the space. The cushions are covered in a lovely, soothing, ocean-toned fabric, which complements the light wood of the furniture and the earthy, light sandstone hues of the fireplace.
Brighten up your porch by accenting with colorful containers of foliage and flowers. If you have a one dimensional space, injecting some excitement could be as easy as adding flowers. They bring life and color to the area, and they are so easy to add, change, and build with the space. Here, a simple bistro table and chairs offers seating and a breakfast nook for morning meals al fresco. Assorted containers of flowers and foliage bring energy and cohesion to the space even though each container is slightly different. Use the flowers you love and you will see how they bring everything together and offer the easiest and most visually impactful porch statement you could make.
