A patterned accent rug adds visual interest to this entertaining porch finished with brick pavers and stuccoed walls. A grill is set in a custom cabinet. A retractable awning keeps it all in the shade, which is always a welcome design feature during sunny summers. The bright, patterned rug infuses the space with infectious energy and a casual, stylish Mediterranean vibe. It is incredibly easy to recreate this effect in your own porch, with a simple set of bistro chairs, a small table, and fuchsia flowers, you can create your own entertaining oasis. Add a grill in anticipation of breezy nights making burger dinners and grilled kebabs.
Wicker has officially transcended its stereotype. We have heard rumors that wicker can be seen as old-fashioned and fussy, but we think that, styled with bright, modern details, there is nothing prettier, more delicate, and porch-perfect. These small-scale white wicker seating pieces, size and style ensures that the furniture will not overpower this small back porch. This condensed vignette does not trade scale for style though. Beige-and-white striped cushions were made to fit the chairs and sofa, and the effect is one of a polished, inviting outdoor space. Clusters of bright flowers in vases and porch corners filled with low-to-the-ground green plants in woven baskets complete the scene.
