The room I have chosen is my porch. In the summer it is so hot in Dallas, that we don't really use it but in the fall, winter and spring we can use it a great deal, and I would like it to be a more enjoyable place to spend time. Here is how it looks at the moment. It is a long narrow porch 7'x14" in length. This is the view facing one way.
And this is the other side.
This is the view looking out and I do like the enclosure that the ferns give me.
Here is the porch from outside.
I am going for a little bit of a shabby chic sort of decor, and here are a couple of inspiration photos that I hope will lead me and my porch in the right direction. I like enclosing myself within the space and keeping it a bit private. I like everything about this inspiration photo. I even like the hanging basket.
There are a bunch of different things I could bring to my porch to achieve a more shabby chic and enclosed setting, and these are just some of the ideas I am thinking about.
It needs a rug no longer than 6'-8" x 13'-7"
Plants for the two cherub planters
Items to hang on the one wall and perhaps above the two sliding doors.
Maybe a bakers type rack or chest to go on the one wall.
Accent lighting from the ceiling.
Tablecloth for the large round table
White or cream color slipcovers for the two larger chairs
More attractive watering can
Lots of accessories.
