Tips!

  • When decorating for porches always start with “good bones” or furniture that is weather resistant and durable. Include storage for accessories or non weather treated décor. Also keep in mind versatility in furniture arrangement for the changing seasons and various functions such as outdoor entertainments.
  • Open floor plans are the current trend in homes. When deciding on décor for these open spaces, select furniture that is attractive in the front and back provides whole family seating, allows for openings, and offers thematic color across the entire floor. Add color and pattern without commitment by inserting ottomans, baskets, and pillows
