The Porch…

When we installed the porch, I really had to step back and say WOW..it turned from a completely dark, depressing space to this breath of fresh air….I designed the porch as an intimate sitting area

The porch was off the kitchen space that I designed and I shifted the color palette to Pool Blue and Lapis.  I draped the entire room in this fabulous Sunbrella fabric which was my first selection for this area, enveloping the room with it gave us the brightness that we needed to freshen up the space.  Again, CR Laine was great at letting us customize the Copley chairs with the “racing stripe” down the center of the chairs.  The chair fabrics are Sunbrella as well.

The buffet piece from the Malibu Loft collection by Modern History across from the sitting area provides the necessary anchor the space needed,  and became the perfect spot to serve cold beverages handy. The off-white finish also added to the lightness of the space.  My good friend, and artist,  Sarah Lytle painted the perfect piece to hang over the bar. The Safavieh area rug added another dimension of texture and color with the over scale IKAT pattern. The Mottega lamps on the buffet were the perfect accent color.
