The Perfect Porch
Watch summer unfold from the view of your porch. Relax as you listen to the wind brush through the trees and the soft splash of sprinklers. But first, create a space that pairs comfort with luxurious style. Whether you’re revamping a porch, veranda or gazebo let your passion and personality inform your redecorating.
Start With the Basics:
Make sure you measure any space before designing. Consider furniture proportions, size, and scale. Don’t place pieces all on the same plane. Keep tweaking until the balance is achieved. For instance, you can add a plant that changes the scale and horizon line.

Perla Lichi, CEO of Perla Lichi Interior Design in Pompano Beach, FL, suggests using artificial plants, which are easy to take off (such as topiaries) as focal points. “Some [people] do not have a lot of time to water the plants so this helps.” Most importantly, according to Lichi, ensure that your decorating also offers the best view of your environment.
Little Things Have Big Impact:

Choose durable materials appropriate for outdoor that will withstand dirt, wind, and mildew. These Schumacher Garter Stripe indoor/outdoor pillows and Schumacher Super Paradise Print-Pool patterns are good picks.
