Enjoy your indoor porch with smart tips from these luxe spaces. Perhaps you're fortunate enough to own a grand space like this Tuscan inspired porch. This one is truly special with tall arch doorways, a limestone fireplace and wrought iron chandelier. The key is to choose furniture to compliment the architecture. Because this room is so commanding, the designers chose heavy furniture and a dark finish to ground the space. This solarium is an elegant spot for afternoon tea. If you've got a space soaring with light, choose neutral colors that don't distract from the garden view. Add pops of color like the pink in these flowers and accent pillows to add a little panache. Casement windows easily convert this glass room into an open air porch. Covered areas offer more versatility when it comes to choosing furniture but be sure to consider fabrics and finishes with UV protection to prevent fading. A large screen porch shows off a modern campy vibe. If your porch has rustic elements like these exposed beams, ceiling fans and wood floors go casual and natural. Choose comfortable furnishings with the woody color scheme. Leave natural with finishes bare or slightly stained to show the wood grain. Finally, lean toward green with fabrics that compliment the great outdoors.
