With the beginning of school right around the corner and summer promising to transform into fall at any moment, one thing is for sure: It’s porch sitting season!
You know we love outdoor spaces that are an extension of our indoor ones, and while summer entertaining outdoors can be so much fun, it’s really the fall when those perfect crips evenings beckon us outdoors.
Whether dining with a group of treasured friends…
Or gathering for cocktails after the kids’ soccer game,
Or simply treating yourself to a quiet morning cup of coffee with a magazine that has been waiting to be read,
These ten stunning porches fit the bill for whatever outdoor activities you might have in mind!
We adore bamboo for its beachy feel that works well in any setting,
And iron, aluminum and wrought iron are classic looks that are always in style–especially in black and white.
But the thing we covet most of all, the thing on our porch wishlist, is an amazing hanging bed.
For sitting, swinging or even that elusive front porch nap, these hanging beds are as comfortable as they are chic. What’s on your porch wishlist?
If you need a good read while you’re relaxing on your porch, why not check out my national bestselling Slightly South of Simple? But don’t take our work for it! Check out what After Orange County is saying about Slightly South of Simple:
“[J]ust as I had anticipated, it was a delight to read. The good news is that this book is the first of a series that Kristy is writing called the Peachtree Bluff Series, so we now have much more to look forward to! As the mother of 3 boys, I could relate to the mother character in this story, Ansley, who is the strong matriarch of 3, not-so-simple adult daughters. Each one of Ansley’s daughters come home to their roots, the seemingly idyllic southern seaside town called Peachtree Bluff. The story weaves its way through the characters’ lives, each with their own unique & individual challenges.” — Celia, After Orange County
