Patio / June 12, 2018 /
An extra large bed swing invites lounging on this porch. Vintage items salvaged from almost anywhere antiques stores, hand me downs, and side of the road treasures add immense character to the space, giving this porch an effect that is equal parts lived in and stylish. This porch seems traditional upon first glace, but its special touches take this space from ok to extraordinary. A shiny green garden stool brightens up the space, as does an eclectic planter. The clean mix of beiges and browns works well with the authentically distressed table. A woven ottoman moves around the space, creates additional seating, and serves as a perfect place to rest a book or beverage.
Outdoor furniture rests comfortably on this small back porch, just big enough for two chairs nestled against a verdant forest landscape. This durable design blends with indoor decor. Quilts are at the ready for chilly evenings. Bedroom windows open onto this serene space to catch the sound of Whisper Creek. The integrated limb and branch touches in this porch design bring nature into the structure of the home, and the wooden furniture intensifies this effect. It is cozy and homey, without too much effort. And, as you can see, it is a lovely place to hang your hat.
