Springtime = Porch Fever, and I have the cure.
Just one question…screened-in or open today? You decide. Oh, and could you pass me a lemon for my sweet tea? Just feel those breezes!
This is one of my very favorite houses in Grant Park in Atlanta. It has multiple porches…as in porches on ALL. FOUR. SIDES! Love! There are three porches just on the front of the home…enough to make this porch-crazy woman faint!
I had the opportunity to tour this house once and it’s gorgeous inside, too. My favorite porch is on the right side, protected by that big, beautiful tree you see on the right side of the house.
Do you see it up high there? The second-story porch on this side was my favorite of all the porches on this house. It has cozy seating and it overlooks a beautiful side yard with a magnificent tree. Felt just like being in a treehouse but with all the comforts of home. (Take my Grant Park tour in THIS post.)
So many things to love about this porch: the white shutters blocking the late afternoon sun or perhaps a less-than-ideal view, the delightful spring-green cushions—especially those striped ones, and gorgeous columns. Couldn’t you just spend the WHOLE day in this space?
The flooring on this porch looks like tile, but it’s actually wood. You could give any porch this treatment by adding striped awnings, white and black wicker and painting the floor. Imagine it done with blue and white awnings and a blue and white floor. Or, how about green?
Just WOW! Love the ceiling and the floors…so rich.
I’m so glad the person who built this porch didn’t say to their contractor, “No, just one fan…one fan will be enough.”
Beach Trip…I’m craving a beach trip! I think I hear Jimmy singing “Boat Drinks” now.
This is where you’ll find me today despite the ongoing attack of the yellow stuff that’s EVERYWHERE. Ahh-chooo!
Let’s call it “flower dust.” Doesn’t that sound so much nicer than pollen? Is it looking like this around your home, too?
