Patio / June 13, 2018 /
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.
Brighten up your porch by accenting with colorful containers of foliage and flowers. If you have a one dimensional space, injecting some excitement could be as easy as adding flowers. They bring life and color to the area, and they are so easy to add, change, and build with the space. Here, a simple bistro table and chairs offers seating and a breakfast nook for morning meals al fresco. Assorted containers of flowers and foliage bring energy and cohesion to the space even though each container is slightly different. Use the flowers you love and you will see how they bring everything together and offer the easiest and most visually impactful porch statement you could make.
