LUGAR PARA SER FELIZ - 4 - outdoor room


Inspired by Charleston side porches, it provides a great place to socialize with neighbors or to take in the fresh air while reading a book.

Large planters filled with billowy acacia and grevillea block out the street and define the space.

This small deck didn’t offer the outdoor living space the homeowners wanted in their Southampton cottage, so they added a bluestone-and-brick patio. Simple wooden furniture with blue-and-white striped details gives this outdoor room a classic, nautical feel.

Depending on the time of day, this patio and sitting area get both shade and brilliant sunlight.

Stripes are the quintessential beach pattern, and this porch embraces them wholeheartedly with striped fabric, planked ceilings, and board-and-batten siding.

Go for an exotic, Eastern teahouse look with this California-made Douglas fir sanctuary.

Enjoy Southern-style candlelit dinners amid gently swaying trees and a serene lake. Large candelabras dress up the casual wooden deck furniture, and a park bench increases seating at the table.

This cozy personal porch feels a part of nature with its combination of lush island vegetation and vibrant green accessories. A whimsical ceiling fixture, emerald green marble-topped table, and a patterned rug play off the natural beauty.

A mismatched table and chairs suit this outdoor dining space’s worn yet elegant style, and no coastal porch would be complete without a woven hammock.

This comfy porch swing and daybed turns this South Carolina porch into a soothing retreat. A cool blue-green cushion and throw pillows reflect the coastal style of this home.

To keep the space from looking too tame, stylist Gena Sigala relied on accessories, also in neutral, but full of character and quirks. Old textiles from a flea market were made into slipcovers for the cushions of a favorite daybed moved outside.

An old tool shed was cleverly transformed into this cool pool house. A set of French doors were added, and a trundle bed pulls out for poolside naps.

Synonymous with casual island living, rattan gives this home a modernized mid-century feel that’s just as attractive now as it was in the 1960s. For a pop of color, pick an outdoor fabric in a tropical blue.

This casual built-in bench sits plenty of guests or becomes a great place for a nap. A striped outdoor fabric and wooden coffee tables ensure this space will withstand weathering.
