An inviting porte-cochere trimmed with heavy wood beams connects a side entrance of this French country-style home in Atlanta, Georgia, to a small shed that is set up to serve as a private office or studio. Both structures are clad in whitewashed wood shingles, mimicking the style of the adjacent carriage house garage.
Designers were able to successfully mix styles by keeping with the home's exterior neutral color scheme across the outdoor furniture and accessories. The more contemporary patio furniture blends well with the French Provincial theme because it does not take a lead in the overall scheme; rather, the furniture's simple lines and structure blend with the evenness of the architecture.

Whitewashed terra-cotta pots and ceramic pitchers work together to set the scene. Start out with a few creamy pillows and add to your collection over time. Yellow and blue is a classic color scheme that also feels very French.
Soft creams and yellows, baskets overflowing with flowering plants and beautiful floral patterns call to mind the relaxed, yet chic style in the South of France. Use a natural sisal or jute rug to let the colors and patterns of your decor pop.
Flowering plants peeking out of a basket is an easy addition to make to any outdoor space. Purchase a number of plants and group them together inside a basket, and use them in several spots around your deck. A simple small chair is an easy addition to any of your existing furniture.
A cozy covered porch with wood ceiling beams extends the style of the inside of this French country-style home in Atlanta, Georgia, to the outdoors. A durable outdoor sectional sofa and fireplace clad in reclaimed wood offer a cozy, shaded spot from which to enjoy the home's surroundings.
