Inspiration for Monday

Happy Monday!  We spent a lot of time outside yesterday, enjoying what is probably the last of the pleasant weather before it starts to get unbearably hot here.  So, I was looking through some patio/outdoor photos, and I found a few I would like to share with you.

Eclectic Patio by Houston Interior Designers & Decorators Sally Wheat Interiors

I love the circular vine treatment on the back fence wall.  What a great way to dress up a boring old fence!

Farmhouse Porch by Atlanta Architects & Designers Historical Concepts

Notice how the beadboard ceiling is painted a very pale shade of blue.  This is a Southern tradition, and I have been told many different reasons for its' origin, any of which could be true.  But no matter the origin, it is a lovely and classic way to treat the ceiling of a porch.

Curved lines are almost always more appealing to the eye in landscaping. 

Traditional Porch by Millbrook Architects & Designers Crisp Architects

The combination of the farm house table, galvanized chairs and slate floors gives this traditional porch just the right amount of rustic feel to make it look so comfortable and live-able.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
