An extra large bed swing invites lounging on this porch. Vintage items salvaged from almost anywhere antiques stores, hand me downs, and side of the road treasures add immense character to the space, giving this porch an effect that is equal parts lived in and stylish. This porch seems traditional upon first glace, but its special touches take this space from ok to extraordinary. A shiny green garden stool brightens up the space, as does an eclectic planter. The clean mix of beiges and browns works well with the authentically distressed table. A woven ottoman moves around the space, creates additional seating, and serves as a perfect place to rest a book or beverage.
An extra long porch swing anchors this porch space and, at 7 feet long, invites stretching out for long afternoon naps. It is twice as nice to fill this swing with friends and family too. The swing is hung in the space by thick ropes instead of the typical silver chain links, which gives the entire area a more natural, cohesive look. A brightly patterned outdoor rug pops against neutral tones. A mixed and matched collection of furniture styles and colors add to the vibe, which exudes a sense of natural meets eclectic. Nothing in this space feels overdone, thanks to the casual mix of colors, which lend a comfortable, collected feel to this bungalow porch.
When temperatures rise, we like to spend days and nights on the terrace. The color palette of the terrace of the house reflects the colors of nature, ranging from brown earth on moss green, yellow and cherry red sand. The outer sides of the house can be decorated with plaster panels in clay or wood. As flooring, natural stone or rustic flooring an ideal complement. The rural areas makes the stay on the terrace for a special romantic experience.
This porch is filled with comfy wicker furniture in traditional green, recognizable by its deep forest, almost black, color. Durable, all weather materials, such as wicker type resin for the frames and outdoor fabric for the cushions keep the space low maintenance and perfect for all seasons. A few luxuries add comfort; plush, pretty pillows and throws can be quickly pulled inside when the weather turns bad. Iron base tables with honed marble tops are the perfect sidekicks because they combine simple lines with elegant materials. It is an ideal place to lounge and wait for a soft breeze.
