Fall is in the air and that means one thing – cool, crisp evenings perfect for relaxing on the back porch. Make your porch cozier with these ideas…
Warming Pillows and Throw – Seek throws and pillows in soft wool, knits and fake fur. They come in a range of textures from plush to nubby and, for color, choose from rich neutrals or warm spice tones.
Textured Rugs – Introducing a new rug is an easy and cost-effective way to give your porch a fresh look. Bring in fall color with a warm-hued kilim or go for the exotic look and deep comfort with a deep-pile Moroccan-style rug.
Throw Blankets – When you want to cuddle up just as the late afternoon temperatures begin to drop, reach for a throw blanket. With so many color and textural options available, they also are another design element that can make your back porch The Place to be this fall.
Make a Chandelier a Conversation Piece – Look for chandeliers that really make a statement. Consider candle shades to prevent glare so at night you enjoy a warm glow over the entertainment area. Make sure the chandelier is UL-rated for outdoor use because even in protected areas, the fixture will be exposed to wind, dust, and moisture.
Tables for Drinks – Don’t forget to place small table strategically next to seating so you, your family and guests can have their favorite warm beverage right by their side when the temperatures start to drop. Make sure you retain clear pathways so that the tables don’t become an obstacle course!
