If a porch is covered, options are almost limitless for the kind of furnishings that can be used. Use unconventional pieces for a look that appears gathered over time (or perhaps even generations.) Antiques that are already weathered and aged are particularly well suited to this.
Take your porch swing to the next level by covering it with a quilt and adding a coffee table found by a curbside. Antique jars filled with flowers and plenty of candles give this sweet space ambiance and style.
Charleston is a city famous for its gracious porches and Gregg has two, in addition to a lovely first floor covered patio at her home's entrance. This one features more practical vinyl upholstery and plenty of rattan and wood for a casual, coastal vibe.
