Patio / June 26, 2018 /
Brighten up your porch by accenting with colorful containers of foliage and flowers. If you have a one dimensional space, injecting some excitement could be as easy as adding flowers. They bring life and color to the area, and they are so easy to add, change, and build with the space. Here, a simple bistro table and chairs offers seating and a breakfast nook for morning meals al fresco. Assorted containers of flowers and foliage bring energy and cohesion to the space even though each container is slightly different. Use the flowers you love and you will see how they bring everything together and offer the easiest and most visually impactful porch statement you could make.
Just off the kitchen, this screened porch connects the interior to the patio for seamless entertaining. An enormous, dazzling wall of windows brings the outdoors inside for the sensation of al fresco living and dining. This porch is a master class in print and pattern mixing. The bench cushions are upholstered in a sea-inspired print, which, while a pattern, serves as a grounding, neutral base for the panoply of patterns represented in the porchs throw pillows. The cream base ties it all together, providing a soothing and connective backdrop for the pillow hues—assorted peaches, greens, blues, navies, and grays. A distressed table and chairs add to the ambience.
