From my Files :: screened porch inspiration
Thursday, June 16, 2011 by {darlene}

I am continuing the process of collecting my files digitally, and it has been so much fun to sort through all of my magazine clippings.

Some background info before I share the pic from my File. We hope to build a screened porch above the concrete porch that you see right off of the side door. And you won’t see any more concrete, or the unsightly tar line where a collapsing roof was removed! Someday. Here is Fieldstone Hill, waiting for her screened porch:

So while I wait, I dream. That is what I do best!
Here is a beautiful space that I dug up from my Paper Files. It is a photo from a covered porch, but for Fieldstone Hill, it will serve as a source of inspiration for decorating our future screened porch:

What I love!:

  1. the concrete structures. That dog is so stately, and I never would have thought of a simple concrete ball, but somehow, it looks so classic.
  2. the blue painted wooden planks as flooring.
  3. the whites and the blues
  4. ivy in pots. one is even a galvanized bucket, I believe. beautiful!
  5. a simple reading and chatting and laughing area. with a place to put your iced tea.
  6. a blue ceiling.
  7. the galvanized wall lamp, up and off to the right.
  8. taking the time to add fresh flowers on your porch.
  9. white painted railings, thick with real wood.
What do you love?

  • Can't wait for you to get a screened in porch on that spot, how lovely!

    Your inspiration photo is gorgeous, so "southern", I can imagine being out there rocking and sippin' on sweet tea!

  • My favorite area of our house is our porch! It's not screen; it's windows, but you can open them up for a nice breeze; I just finished decorating it and made room for a bed, porch swing, and a table to eat; it's right here:

    I LOVE the blues in that picture, and the dog too! I would like to change my floor as well; that one is awesome. :)
