Furnishings with an interior influence like the rug, sofa, and lamps look great in an outdoor room too. Colorful blooming containers in varying sizes create a garden setting. With plush furnishings, you can elevate the traditional farmhouse porch into a vibrant place to relax with a cold beverage, watching the sun go down on a warm afternoon. Here, shades of coral adorn pillows, which play well with the bustling, flower-filled containers. All of the flower displays are housed in neutral containers, which blend seamlessly into the porch setting. The neutral hues, with a bit of subtle, visual interest added by gray and tan bands at the top, ensure that the containers are always prepared for an evolving color scheme.
This 35 foot long by 9 foot deep back porch respects porches of the past by using traditional shading devices such as a trellis at one end. Comfortable rattan chairs, cushioned in red, yellow, and green, add cheer to this outdoor living room. Ceiling fans help cool the space during sultry summer days, while three copper finish lanterns contribute to the ambience. The clean lined lattice shed gorgeous shadows across the porchs brick wall in the afternoons, and it is a beautiful setting in which to spend a lazy summer afternoon. The plush patterned cushions perched in the rattan chairs do not steal the show, but the do add a familiar, traditional Southern touch.
