Perfect Porch for a Party

PPorches are a personal favorite of mine and rank high on my list of ‘must haves’ for any home. The perfect porch adds living space to your home by blurring the lines between the inside and the outside. These photos illustrate  my ‘perfect porch’ list—a living area, a dining area, a garden and of course a stone fireplace to help with chilly nights and pesky bugs. This porch is just off of the kitchen, which also makes it perfect for entertaining! Let me know what you think …
