Patio / June 26, 2018 /
This 35 foot long by 9 foot deep back porch respects porches of the past by using traditional shading devices such as a trellis at one end. Comfortable rattan chairs, cushioned in red, yellow, and green, add cheer to this outdoor living room. Ceiling fans help cool the space during sultry summer days, while three copper finish lanterns contribute to the ambience. The clean lined lattice shed gorgeous shadows across the porchs brick wall in the afternoons, and it is a beautiful setting in which to spend a lazy summer afternoon. The plush patterned cushions perched in the rattan chairs do not steal the show, but the do add a familiar, traditional Southern touch.
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.
