This is the perfect place for playtime, if we do say so ourselves. This porch is so inviting and functional for families, especially those with small children, as you can see from the toys and playtime remnants left on the floor. An extra deep porch swing makes lazy afternoons on this porch a must. The small pops of subdued color provide the porch a laid back, beach like atmosphere. There are few things kids love more than a porch swing, and this one will grow with the family. With a durable, mattress like topper, this makes a great place for afternoon naps and nights spent pseudo camping on the porch.
At only 130 square feet, porch is too small for a dining table or sofa, but it is the idea place for conversation and a cocktail. The solution: a stunning coffee table made from four slices of a maple tree, a set of four casual leather-wrapped rattan chairs, and a bright cobalt rug to cover an unattractive brick floor. Two fiddle-leaf figs frame the space, which are ideal plants for a small space with great light. Two small, simple potted plants are set atop the cross-sections of maple, as well as a few favorite books. Not pictured: a simple stocked bar with all the fixings for a classic Old Fashioned.
On this porch, or piazza, classic white wicker furniture is dressed with zesty, bold pillows in a fun pattern. Together, the classic white wicker and the modern India-inspired motif are marked by striking color, natural textures and materials, and classic Southern design with a modern, upbeat edge. The elegant white, barrel-style garden stools are multi-purpose. In this porch vignette, they are positioned in front of the sofa, creating extra seating or a perfect place to rest a book, lamp, or drink. The plants on this porch are subtle, with a red flowering planter that complements the hues included in the sofa pillows and a classic fern in an earthy golden pot.
In designing country-style terrace, one oriented nature. Furniture Row rural aspect should be more simple and functional. Signs of wear and patina giving them a special charm and are highly desirable. The Living Textiles checkered pattern with floral elements are combined. Tablecloths to flowers and garden lanterns recall the carefree life of the country.
