It’s the perfect time of year to ‘think’ porches and patios. I love a great porch for lounging, entertaining or taking a quiet afternoon nap. Try adding new cushions and an area rug to define the space and add a little extra color. Large pots of herbs add texture and fill the air with wonderful scents. Adding a few pots of hydrangea or ferns can also add color and privacy from that really close neighbor or road.
Patios always bring alfresco dinning to mind. Cover the area with a pergola and a few flowering vines, candles or twinkle lights, and you are instantly transported to a magical place. Here are a few great porches and patios to inspire you—and hopefully bring a smile to your face. Click on the video link below to see lots of ideas for that perfect porch or patio.
