These solid panel shutters add color to the porch and offer extra protection for two pairs of porch doors. The shutters fold back flush against the wall when opened. Few colors are able to transcend the traditional, modern divide so seamlessly, but this bright, bold green is a perfect example of an exterior paint color that is just as versatile as it is statement making. With a color like this on your shutters, you only need simple wicker furniture and wooden accents to create a bold and beautiful tableau. Equally bold and classic, these shutters are a showstopper with definite, uncompromising curb appeal.
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.
