An unusual feature, a bar inspired drink ledge, winds around this circular porch and gives you a practical and stylish place to rest a cup of cocoa, tea, your favorite brew, or an icy cocktail. The style of this porch takes relaxing to new heights, literally. Hanging candle lanterns can be lit during evening outdoor entertaining, and this porchs lofty rafters formed in a deep wood compass design pop against the cream roof and columns. This design feature gives the porch an airy, cathedral like quality, which is then made modern with help from the bold, dark wicker furniture and cheerful coral toned color and pattern mixture below.
Red is a fantastic choice for bold décor with major impact. It is the defining color throughout this outdoor space, which uses pattern, textile, and paint to bring red into each corner of the porch. Using a single hue as inspiration is an easy way to tie the look together and creates a space that coalesces with color, exuding energy and continuity. Extra pillows add color and comfort to this bench swing, which is low to the ground and laden with plush, patterned color. A bench cushion in a floral fabric contributes to the red theme in a subtle way.
