Sometimes the less-is-more approach can create greater impact than overly decorative touches. For a pop of green around the perimeter of the front porch, the railing was dressed with bare garland. This adds just the right amount of texture and color to keep it feeling festive.
The neutral palette of this country porch creates a calm, relaxing feel. Stylish dark wicker furniture provides plenty of seating. Recessed lighting, yellow accent lighting, string lights in the yard and a fire pit combine to keep the space well-lit and warm.
Around the back of the house, two spacious seating areas give guests plenty of room to stretch out. While the adults enjoy casual conversation and a drink on the porch, the kids can tumble and play on the grassy lawn.
Ceiling blinds shade this small back porch illuminated by the natural light from the windows. A black wood floor provides a pleasing contrast to the bright white walls of the enclosure. Mounted planters create a green wall adding life and decoration to the small space.
