With warm weather here at last (we hit 80° today and it’s 74° as I type this at 10:00 at night) I have all things “porch” on the brain. Time to share another favorite porch book!
In the BNOTP Library: Pleasures of the Porch : Ideas for Gracious Outdoor Living
Author: Daria Price Bowman
3 Things I Like About This Book:
- Pleasures of the Porch is another great porch book filled with lots of pictures of beautiful porches. I don’t know about you, but I get great ideas and learn so much about what I want when designing/decorating a room or outdoor space by looking at pictures of real spaces, so pictures are always an important part of any book I add to my library. This book provides lots of ideas for design and decor via the photos.
- There’s a whole chapter dedicated to ideas for furnishing and decorating porches. Prepare to drool! Another chapter covers plants that are great for porches or for growing on surrounding supports. Lots of good info to spark ideas.
- I like the information given regarding the history of the porch and how it has evolved over the years. Porches have been around for ages and for good reason. Your blood pressure drops 10 points the minute you walk onto a shady, cool porch, hopefully with a glass of ice tea, wine or fruity drink in hand. 🙂
