Patio / June 26, 2018 /
Furnishings with an interior influence like the rug, sofa, and lamps look great in an outdoor room too. Colorful blooming containers in varying sizes create a garden setting. With plush furnishings, you can elevate the traditional farmhouse porch into a vibrant place to relax with a cold beverage, watching the sun go down on a warm afternoon. Here, shades of coral adorn pillows, which play well with the bustling, flower-filled containers. All of the flower displays are housed in neutral containers, which blend seamlessly into the porch setting. The neutral hues, with a bit of subtle, visual interest added by gray and tan bands at the top, ensure that the containers are always prepared for an evolving color scheme.
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.
