The ideal place to watch sunrises and sunsets, this porch makes the most of its surroundings. A traditional white wooden porch swing is made cozier with blue-and-white cotton pillows. Below, a warm, tan-toned rug with a subtle, neutral pattern grounds the space. A rustic bench serves as a side table, which is styled with a functioning lantern—perfect for adding ambience to starry, midsummer nights—and a simple, fuschia flower arrangement which adds a pop of color to the blue, white, and tan color scheme. A basket underneath the bench is a nice place to tuck away extra pillows and a few cozy blankets for crisp nights when the Texas weather turns slightly cooler.
Durable accessories and furnishings give this porch a cozy living room feel. Patterned pillows and a faux zebra, skin rug are paired with natural colors and textures for a striking effect. This porchs impactful accent color is a zesty yellow green hue. It melds gorgeously with the brick walls, lending an unexpected, but so aesthetically pleasing, blend of colors on the walls and ceiling. The furniture adds a sophisticated cream cushion base, and the dark piping on the sofa cushions elevate the neutral base with elegance. A subtle pattern and color mix in the array of sofa cushions add a playful infusion to the spaces bold use of color and elegant decor choices.
