Casa Craving Challenge: Cozy Autumn Porch

Every Thursday on CasaSugar, I'll give you a decorating challenge and ask you to go Casa Craving for items that fit the look. (Here's a post explaining what a Casa Craving is and how to create one.)

The latest Casa Craving Challenge is inspired by the changing seasons and the new chill in the air. I love autumn, and I also like spending time in living spaces that bridge the divide between indoors and outdoors.

So in this Casa Craving Challenge, I’d like you to design a cozy autumn porch that carefully considers its use during this season. You can create a cooly casual country look, like Danny Seo's porch from above, or modernize it a bit with some more techy materials and accessories. To give you some inspiration I've chosen green design guru Danny Seo's River Road House, which is currently for sale in Pennsylvania. I think that Danny does a stellar job of combining utility with style, making his porch a place that inspires visitor with its design while also making them want to hang out in the space. So study carefully, Casa readers, and then decide how you'd create your own cozy autumn porch. What furniture, artwork, games, outdoor equipment, pet accessories, throw pillows, blankets, and other accents would you use to get the look?

Tell me by creating Casa Cravings and tagging your Cravings with the phrase autumn porch, and I'll feature the results next Wednesday, Oct. 10th. Even better, you can create a list of your bookmarks; TeamSugar has a great tutorial on listmaking if you're not sure how. Please let me know if you have any questions.
