One of my absolute favorite things about the weather warming up is sitting on my porch in the afternoons. I love being outside so much that Matt likes to call me solar-powered. If you couldn't tell from my last post, I think that having a great outdoor living space is really important. Too often we overlook out outdoor spaces and don't really give them the thought or time to make them part of our home. Today I have come up with a plan for a really great porch layout. The key is to think about how you want to use your porch (lounging, reading, dining, grilling, sitting around a fire pit) and then source pieces that will best help you accomplish those things. For me; I like to sit and read with a glass of wine in the evenings, and during the day I like to lounge in the sun.
