We have numerous porch or porch type things at ‘Our House’, and the screened porch is one of them. It is the exact footprint of the sunroom because the screened porch sits directly below it. But unlike the sunroom which we made totally protected from the weather and livable all 4 seasons, the screened porch is only protected from bugs… for the most part… a few always seem to find a way in.
The screened porch is accessible from the lower level family room, it has a big sliding patio door that opens into the porch. It’s also accessible from the outside patio beyond the screened room.
Currently, the house is painted light green, but I’m in the process of changing that. However the color scheme will remain blues and greens with gray/brown accents, and a tiny bit of copper thrown in here and there… The whole outside is filled with blue sky and green plants, so how can you go wrong… it’s just such a soothing color combination. Anyway, point is that this rug will continue to work well in the space even with the new colors on the siding.
The antique bench my mother-in-law gave to me a long time ago… it was from her family. It’s actually in pretty tough condition, but with all this stuff on and around it, it looks great.
Yep! I’ve re-purposed another ‘interior window’. This antique one I spray painted the back glass silver and aqua so when the sun shines through, it has a subtle hint of color.
When I saw this enameled metal art from Home Goods last year, I knew it would be just right for this spot, it pulls together the colors and accents of copper to coordinate with the pair of sconces that flank each side of the sliding patio door.
This antique porch swing is on the other side of the screened porch and it too, came from my mother-in-law, I think she said it was just sitting in an outbuilding on the farm when they moved there back in the late 60’s… I don’t think they ever used it after they moved there, and I was glad to receive it from her. It is still very sturdy and surprisingly very comfortable.
