Inspired by the vernacular Florida vacation home, a porch wraps the length of the backyard, providing shade from the intense midday sun. A flat porch roof, clad in 24-gauge metal, replaces the classic sloped roof clad in cedar or cypress shingles. A pine trestle style teal table with vintage steel chairs complete the beach house look.
Two upholstered chairs and four stools surround the island. "We wanted a couple of chairs to be extremely comfortable," says interior designer Linda Woodrum. "To save on space we used four stools that slipped under the island."
