Patio / June 11, 2018 /
For year round lounging, this enclosed sitting area boasts candle chandeliers and a fireplace. Filling the fireplace with candles instead of firewood is a great idea for adding light and charm in warm summer months. This candle fireplace effect looks especially nice with a cluster of assorted candle sizes, all in the same hue. The candle chandelier pops and glows against the backdrop of this porchs pretty brick design. Brick is a durable base for any design, and the owner of this porch accented the dusty red brick hue with bright pops of marigold, which look lovely and romantic underneath the glow of candlelight.
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.
