It is no secret that we live for our porches. Is there any memory sweeter than those of childhood suppers on screened porches, or swinging the night away on the perfectly-designed porch. Face it: we pay for our mild winters with our sultry summers, and while modern air-conditioning may have made those deep porches of the past unnecessary, our Southern spirit just can not imagine our homes without our porches, whether they are wraparound, screened in, or a whole new porch design idea. A farmhouse porch just begs for a deep swing, piled with pillows and a tiny place to plant your iced tea. Maybe the classic white porch, with a row of inviting rocking chairs, is your style. Trust us, porch design ideas are something we take very seriously down here. We love a natural screened in porch that invites the landscape inside. Take a look at some of our favorite porch designs; maybe you will find some ideas for your own perfect perch.
Durable accessories and furnishings give this porch a cozy living room feel. Patterned pillows and a faux zebra, skin rug are paired with natural colors and textures for a striking effect. This porchs impactful accent color is a zesty yellow green hue. It melds gorgeously with the brick walls, lending an unexpected, but so aesthetically pleasing, blend of colors on the walls and ceiling. The furniture adds a sophisticated cream cushion base, and the dark piping on the sofa cushions elevate the neutral base with elegance. A subtle pattern and color mix in the array of sofa cushions add a playful infusion to the spaces bold use of color and elegant decor choices.
