Patio / June 25, 2018 /
Lined with box columns and accessible to the indoors through pairs of French doors, this side porch functions much like an interior room, complete with comfortable seating and durable outdoor rugs. This gracious extension of living space contains a teak dining table for informal meals. A very modern, relaxing décor choice, the owner of this home painted the ceiling of the porch a gorgeous sky blue, evoking the serenity of a cloudless day and giving a brush of visual interest at a high elevation, drawing the eye up and intensifying the airiness as well as the sense of height in the space.
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.
