As seen on HGTV's hit show, Fixer Upper, the formal dining room in this home was moved to the sunporch to create a unique space for entertaining. With plenty of natural light, the space feels bright and open, while the brick fireplace makes the space feel a part of the home. A new, rustic dining room table brings this space to life, as the new chandelier helps to light the space and add a touch of elegance.
Enjoy the warmth of this sun porch decorated in neutral tones with strong accents of green and blue in throw pillows, an end table and live plants. The arching silver floor lamp with white shade provides plenty of light when the sun goes down.
This sun porch shields from the elements while large windows around the room let in ample natural light to connect it to the outdoors. A rich wood entertainment cabinet adds a darker, heavier piece to ground the neutral and airy design. Plush furniture and an elegant decor offer timeless traditional style.
Around the exterior of the house, porches and patios allow the family and their guests to relax and take in the home's beautiful ocean views. A pergola was built above each of these spaces to help block the sun so these spaces can be enjoyed during any time of day.
Though spacious, this sun porch has a cozy, warm feel that's achieved by creating distinct spaces for lounging and dining. A large stone fireplace is a welcoming touch. A mix of light and dark finishes creates contrast that highlights the Spanish architecture.
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.
Everything is upholstered in Sunbrella, including the outdoor drapery, which all gets a heavy hose-down in advance of every visit. The couple and their guests can nap, lounge, party and relax there.
The southeastern porch and monumental stairs are covered by a soaring roof, which rises above the site and offers shelter from the rain and summer sun. The guardrails use welded wire mesh, which is both tough and transparent.
A wide shot of the home's exterior shows the magnificent features of the backyard. A wrap-around porch accommodates a dining area and outdoor kitchen, glass walls create seamless transitions from outdoor to indoor, and a deep porch overhang provides shade and blocks sunlight from heating interior spaces. The lounge area by the pool is perfect for relaxing and sunbathing.
