Patio / June 21, 2018 /
An ideal place to bask in salty ocean breezes, this porch is a coastal oasis. Two woven rockers, positioned next to the stucco fireplace on the front porch, create the perfect place to unwind on a warm summer night, listening to the sound of the sea, the waves breaking on the sandy shore. This porch is functional and practical. It maintains its appeal while also serving as a great place for sandy feet and wet towels. Easy to clean flooring and furniture ensures that when you and your family retire from an afternoon at the beach, you would not worry about keeping things on the porch pristine.
With surroundings as elegant as these—oaks dripping with moss and stately columns—less is more in terms of porch styling. A zinc-topped cypress tree-trunk table blends seamlessly into the landscape, as do the weathered urns and pots the designer. Topped with an arrangement of gorgeous, vibrant hydrangeas; the flowers provide one pop of color, and one is all this porch needs. The rest—white and beige and green—create the most sophisticated Southern scene. For evening lounging, the chandelier is lowered on a rustic rope; when its candles are lit, the magical scenario is complete.
