This past week has brought with it a dip in temperatures, and has made me consider how I can give my porch an autumn-friendly conversion. So in this last Casa Craving Challenge, I asked you to design a cozy autumn porch that carefully considered its use during this season. Some of you created a cooly casual country look, like Danny Seo's porch from above, and others gave it a more eclectic look with some more funky materials and accessories.
I loved the porches that Casa readers created that provided warmth (both with blankets and gorgeous lighting) as well as fun activities for visitors. You can see all of the Cozy Autumn Porch bookmarks here, as well as all the great lists. (Still not sure how to create a list? TeamSugar has a great tutorial on listmaking if you're not sure how. Here are my three favorite porch looks:
Look #1 was designed by Turkeyjerky, who chose strong wood furniture, lovely textiles, and wrought iron candle lanterns for her autumn porch.
For two more great looks,
Look #2 was designed by Klynnmorton, who created bright red pops of color in her porch. She writes that "This porch would greet you each day with a promise of relaxation and fun with its three seating areas, the egg chair for alone-time reading or watching the birds, the game/picnic table, or the bench for talks and a little rest while gardening. This porch is full of color and makes the summer more cheery and the fall more fun!"
Look #3 was designed by Tdamji who writes that fall is "a great time of year to sit outside in the evening and watch the sun go down, before it gets too cold out." She provided visitors to her porch with lots of games and fun topiary accents to focus on after they finish watching the gorgeous autumn sunsets.
