This porch creates a hybrid indoor outdoor space thanks to the substantial walls and brick accents. Comfortable and cozy, this porch is composed several features, one is made of a brick chimney, mantel, and firebox. This exterior fireplace is covered with stucco. This touch not only distinguishes it from the surrounding brick walls, but it also creates a focal point. The hearth is raised for additional seating. Plus, by centering the fireplace between a brick opening and the exterior living room wall, it provides a handy nook for firewood. A gas starter takes the hit or miss process out of starting a blaze
With surroundings as elegant as these—oaks dripping with moss and stately columns—less is more in terms of porch styling. A zinc-topped cypress tree-trunk table blends seamlessly into the landscape, as do the weathered urns and pots the designer. Topped with an arrangement of gorgeous, vibrant hydrangeas; the flowers provide one pop of color, and one is all this porch needs. The rest—white and beige and green—create the most sophisticated Southern scene. For evening lounging, the chandelier is lowered on a rustic rope; when its candles are lit, the magical scenario is complete.
