There’s nothing better than summer porch sitting and, if you can relax in the shade without making the house too dark, all the better. For that perfect combination of taming the rays and letting in the light–not to mention, loads of charm–nothing beats a pergola with a few well-placed vines.
This compilation is especially for our friend Courtney, who is contemplating making a pergola part of her Texas renovation. We hope these give you the inspiration you’re looking for!

Everything about this design is amazing, but we especially love the beautiful garden seats.
There are few things that lend a home rustic charm as beautifully as a room accented by stone. While there’s nothing cozier than the warmth of stone complemented by a roaring fireplace on a cold winter’s night, it’s equally as cool and crisp during a scorching summer. We generally think of stone as a mountain house staple, but these designers have shown that a natural material can be perfect in a more elegant space as well, even a modern bathroom.
