Patio / June 25, 2018 /
This deluxe patio room actually used to be a rundown garage. You would never guess what this comfortable space looked like in its previous iteration. Undaunted, owners wanted to make the structure feel more intimate, cozy, and liveable. To do this, the large, open space needed to be divided into more manageable rooms. Large containers of lush plants are grouped at varying heights to give this outdoor retreat scale. Pops of yellow do what they do best, brighten and add cheery color to a monochrome, neutral area. An overhead fan ensures a reliable breeze and means of cooling guests during visits outdoors.
Substantial, sturdy outdoor furniture sets the scene for front porch dining. Transitional styling, simple lines and natural teak, make this lovely dining set at home anywhere, including the primitive exterior of this cottage. It complements the tree trunk columns without exactly matching the woods of the cottages exterior. This adds additional visual interest and intensifies the rustic theme of the setting. With a porch long and wide enough for different furniture moments, here we have one side of the porch ideal for a breakfast, lunch, or dinner for six, and a casual seating area on the other side of the porch, perfect for mid-day lounging or after-dinner drinks.
