With the arrival of spring, and warmer temperatures, comes the urge to spend every minute in outdoor rooms. These outdoor living spaces offer a perfect place to lounge next to the pool , dine alfresco, or take in the surrounding landscape. Whether terrace, loggia, or quaint nook, these outdoor living rooms are as stylish as the amazing homes they accompany, from a chic summer retreat in the Hamptons to a waterfront vacation house in Nova Scotia.
It is no secret that we live for our porches. Is there any memory sweeter than those of childhood suppers on screened porches, or swinging the night away on the perfectly-designed porch. Face it: we pay for our mild winters with our sultry summers, and while modern air-conditioning may have made those deep porches of the past unnecessary, our Southern spirit just can not imagine our homes without our porches, whether they are wraparound, screened in, or a whole new porch design idea. A farmhouse porch just begs for a deep swing, piled with pillows and a tiny place to plant your iced tea. Maybe the classic white porch, with a row of inviting rocking chairs, is your style. Trust us, porch design ideas are something we take very seriously down here. We love a natural screened in porch that invites the landscape inside. Take a look at some of our favorite porch designs; maybe you will find some ideas for your own perfect perch.
