The Matsumotos wanted an outdoor dining area on a covered porch. The tin ceiling was made from the repurposed metal roof from the home's original structure. A hanging planter was fashioned from an old wooden box salvaged from inside the old house.
Porch with Outdoor Furniture and Mirrored Table with Lanterns
WAKE + LOOM Design used a matching patio set, which can be a splurge, on this small porch, but you can draw inspiration from the table top. To glam up a wicker table you own or a yard sale item, add a mirror or a piece of glass to the top.
Urban Patio With Wood Privacy Fence and Dark Brown Wicker Sectional
Rather than pay to remove the unsightly metal fence from her Chicago apartment patio, Erica Lugbill of Lugbill Designs covered it up with stained and pressure-treated lumber. The horizontal panels create privacy that the pre-existing metal fence didn’t offer. Red chairs provide a fun pop of color against the brown and gray tones of the patio.
The front of the home was reimagined with steps leading to a more pronounced portico. A stacked stone veneer dresses up the singled facade, while the addition of a carriage style garage door adds extra charm.
