Do provide shade. Intense afternoon sunshine can drive you indoors if it bakes your patio. Adding a pergola or canopy above a seating or dining area of your outdoor living space can help you create a cool respite.,Outdoor Patio by Trip Haenisch
Imagine waking up in a cozy cabin in the mountains and walking out into this porch with hot tea in hand, inhaling the fresh smell of an early morning rain :) Peaceful. ~ yes, i want a porch like this and a swing. I always love sitting on the porch.
I have always wanted a porch swing. It's a comfortable place to curl up with a book, or a place to relax while still being outdoors. I can imagine myself on a cool summer night, watching the sun go down, just sitting on there on the swing.
