Nature and Nurture
A porch overlooking a forest of pines features a driftwood chandelier cool enough to do double duty as a piece of sculpture. On-trend bamboo furniture and plenty of greenery blend with the interior design and well-placed floor to ceiling curtains help divide the space into a shaded and a sunny spot.
This screened-in porch allows the owners to enjoy fresh air, sunshine and water views without the pesky mosquitos. And once the sun goes down? Well, the modern sconces switch on and create a cozy atmosphere.
Slipcovered outdoor chairs make relaxing outside on the porch feel like a direct extension of the indoor living room. A pine wood ceiling brings warmth to the space, amping up the coziness. The contemporary square pool boasts a connected hot tub with water spouts and submerged bench seating.
Covered Porch With Blue Painted Ceiling Over Hanging Bed Swing and Concrete Steps Leading to Wooden Outdoor Chairs
Four ropes support this hanging bed for a cozy and spacious porch swing. The open sides of the swing match the spacious, open look of the porch. A painted blue ceiling adds soft color and brings the blue sky to the covered porch. The concrete porch floor steps out onto an uncovered patio complete with wood chairs for seating.
Rustic, Contemporary Patio with Fireplace and Exposed Brick Wall
A gorgeous patio borrows element from several design styles, making it feel both rustic and contemporary. Unique features include the tall, framed fireplace; large cabinets surrounding the fireplace; exposed brick wall and stone floors.
A small square table with a glass top creates a little dining area on this wood balcony. Upholstered gray chairs are decorated with black and white floral pillows, complementing the black railing and the home's gray exterior.
Supported by a stone structured base, this porch is adorned with brown lounge chairs and a white railing topped with iron decor. The sconces add light to the porch, illuminating the lounge space. The landscaping is kept simple with small foliage planted around the porch base.
The outdoor porch overlooks beautiful views of Beaver Creek, Colo. Contemporary woven furniture gathers together for a cozy conversation area and perfect spot to enjoy the outdoors. Rustic stone posts pair with metal railings and exposed wood beam ceiling.
Gorgeous Contemporary Enclosed Porch With Bunch Gray Curtains, Animal Hide Rug and Wicker Sofa
White cushions on the tan wicker sofa shine against the neutral hues in this enclosed porch. A mixture of throw pillows decorate the sofa and add color to the room. A blue animal hide rug adds texture and shape while gray curtains are bunched in the windows allowing natural light to fill the room.
A wood slat wall with a retractable screen offers privacy when needed but also allows for views of the yard when retracted. The indoor living room flows seamlessly into the living space on the porch via sliding glass doors.
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. We're told the lake is a jet ski drag strip on the weekends, so good spectator seating!
