Patio / June 11, 2018 /
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.
A couple of elegant hanging ferns have become the classic look, especially one with clean lines and a smooth white color scheme. This porch utilizes two hanging baskets to frame the space and mirror the two lamp sconces that frame the front door with a warm glow. Container gardens and a lush border add color to this space. Symmetry is the name of the game with this porch, and it is a classic example of how symmetrical design features can add elegance to an outdoor space. A row of rocking chairs could not be more inviting when accentuated with bright yellow seat cushions. We can imagine rocking here with family, enjoying the summer.
