According to design expert Susanna Salk, the front porch is “an extension of the soul of the house.” Bring your design style onto your front porch with bright decorative pillows, outdoor artwork, flowing curtains or a large area rug. This front porch keeps it simple with light rattan furniture and neutral tones. Small green pillows coordinate with the greenery and pop against the white cushions.
A cozy addition to any backyard retreat is an outdoor fireplace. It allows you to enjoy your outdoor space all year round. During the summer months it serves as a focal point while providing a comfortable, warm gathering spot in the winter.
Deliver a stunning and romantic touch to your space with landscape lighting. Set a mood or highlight your favorite backyard features.
