Patio / June 26, 2018 /
On this porch, or piazza, classic white wicker furniture is dressed with zesty, bold pillows in a fun pattern. Together, the classic white wicker and the modern India-inspired motif are marked by striking color, natural textures and materials, and classic Southern design with a modern, upbeat edge. The elegant white, barrel-style garden stools are multi-purpose. In this porch vignette, they are positioned in front of the sofa, creating extra seating or a perfect place to rest a book, lamp, or drink. The plants on this porch are subtle, with a red flowering planter that complements the hues included in the sofa pillows and a classic fern in an earthy golden pot.
Red is a fantastic choice for bold décor with major impact. It is the defining color throughout this outdoor space, which uses pattern, textile, and paint to bring red into each corner of the porch. Using a single hue as inspiration is an easy way to tie the look together and creates a space that coalesces with color, exuding energy and continuity. Extra pillows add color and comfort to this bench swing, which is low to the ground and laden with plush, patterned color. A bench cushion in a floral fabric contributes to the red theme in a subtle way.
