Scorching Porches!

Thursday, April 30, 2009 | Category: Home Exteriors


In anticipation of longer days ahead, warm weather, and an eagerness to enjoy the outdoors – I thought I would feature pictures of outdoor porches and decks. I recently completed a virtual design project for a client who lives in Ohio but has a vacation home on Martha’s Vineyard. The client specifically asked for help with exterior lighting, exterior paint color, and any creative ideas on how to furnish the backyard porch. I sourced some decorative outdoor light fixtures in addition to recessed lighting (which he asked for). I also provided ideas & resources for outdoor furnishings and accessories. Having focused solely on a single porch design, I became interested in searching for pictures of all kinds of porches – from East Coast to Southern to Tropical to Modern.

If you haven’t already gotten started on sprucing up the backyard patio, deck, balcony, front porch – take a look at the potential!

Being a city dweller I am lucky to have roughly 5 sq feet in which to create an outdoor area. Thanks for the inspiration! I’m already thinking of the cool stores to shop at!

I love the very first porch and the very last porch the most. Great inspiration, and yay for summer!
