Patio / June 26, 2018 /
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.
A couple of elegant hanging ferns have become the classic look, especially one with clean lines and a smooth white color scheme. This porch utilizes two hanging baskets to frame the space and mirror the two lamp sconces that frame the front door with a warm glow. Container gardens and a lush border add color to this space. Symmetry is the name of the game with this porch, and it is a classic example of how symmetrical design features can add elegance to an outdoor space. A row of rocking chairs could not be more inviting when accentuated with bright yellow seat cushions. We can imagine rocking here with family, enjoying the summer.
