This porch creates a hybrid indoor outdoor space thanks to the substantial walls and brick accents. Comfortable and cozy, this porch is composed several features, one is made of a brick chimney, mantel, and firebox. This exterior fireplace is covered with stucco. This touch not only distinguishes it from the surrounding brick walls, but it also creates a focal point. The hearth is raised for additional seating. Plus, by centering the fireplace between a brick opening and the exterior living room wall, it provides a handy nook for firewood. A gas starter takes the hit or miss process out of starting a blaze
This deluxe patio room actually used to be a rundown garage. You would never guess what this comfortable space looked like in its previous iteration. Undaunted, owners wanted to make the structure feel more intimate, cozy, and liveable. To do this, the large, open space needed to be divided into more manageable rooms. Large containers of lush plants are grouped at varying heights to give this outdoor retreat scale. Pops of yellow do what they do best, brighten and add cheery color to a monochrome, neutral area. An overhead fan ensures a reliable breeze and means of cooling guests during visits outdoors.
