Outdoor drapery helps blur the lines between indoor spaces and exterior porches filled with upholstery, swings and places for lazy napping next to the saltwater pool, all keeping a fresh, clean and neutral palette. And after the sun goes down, the party moves to the lakeside fire pit.
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.
Equipped with a ceiling fan and a wood-burning stove, this screened-in porch maintains a welcoming environment whatever the weather. A porch swing begs for you and your favorite book. Architecture by Jasmit Rangr.
Keeping in mind their love of kayaking and entertaining winery guests, Kim Lewis Designs fulfilled the clients' desire for an indoor/outdoor space. The porch features a place for the pooches! Built-in benches offer lounge seating, but space underneath is super valuable, so built-in dog beds were added.
Spacious Covered Porch With Outdoor Dining Table and Chairs
This sprawling covered back porch offers ample room for relaxing and entertaining. Brown wooden chairs are positioned around a white dining table with colorful potted plants, while orange and yellow Adirondack chairs provide a spot for taking in the view. Multiple ceiling fans hang from the white beadboard ceiling.
Eclectic Porch With White Sofa and Bright Throw Pillows
The sitting area clearly demonstrates the color story for the porch: white and neutral base pieces with bright accents. The sectional sofa, wood coffee table and baroque wall mirror bring unexpected indoor sophistication to outdoor living. The pink, red and purple throw pillows pop against the stark white sofa. A geometric light fixture hangs above to provide lighting.
