My idea of a great summer home - big huge porches, steps up the the porch, white picket fence. Love the feel. Just love it. #Summer House #porch Farms House, Dreams Home, Flags, Dreams House, Pale, Farmhouse Style, Wraps Around Porches, Front Porches, White Picket Fence
After: Pretty Sitting Fresh paint, bold fabrics, soft rugs, and furniture that's easy to arrange and rearrange make this L-shape porch a great space for parties and family gatherings. For flexibility, select lightweight furnishings that would work just as well inside the house.
Modern Country: White plastic Philippe Starck chairs feel right at home on a country-style front porch with their blue-ticking cushions. Light blue paint on the ceiling gives the sense that you're always sitting under a clear blue sky. Antique treasures like the stone guard dog and ball make their way onto the porch, bringing the home's eclectic style outdoors.
Lush potted mums add color to this front stoop, as do paper lanterns hung from the portico. White pumpkins add contrast and a harvest wreath defines the solid wood door.
