PORCHES - The Style Sisters


By The Style Sisters - Thursday, June 12, 2008

Don't you just love the look of porches! I found these photos on the Country Home magazine website and just loved them. They have this romantic, soft billowy look about them. We don't have a porch at our current home but I sure would love to have one someday. I can just imagine myself..... sitting out on our beautiful porch on a perfect summer evening...we finished dinner, the dishes are done, and my hubby and I are drinking a tall cold glass of refreshing lemonade and eating some homemade flaky shortbread cookies just out of the oven! We sit there into the evening watching neighborhood kids play "hide and go seek" out in the street and reminisce about how we used to do that as kids. Then we watch the sunset.... and soon the fireflies start to light up all around us and we just smile at each other and enjoy the sweet quiet moment.

Please share with us how you enjoy your porch or how you would like to enjoy a porch of your own?

  2. I do have a porch and I really enjoy it. I sure wish I knew how to link to the page on my website that shows my porch...it is the entry called "stress".... anyhow, across the street from us is the high school baseball field; I have enjoyed many games from my front porch. I have also watched many soccer practices throughout the years as well... and I enjoy watching and chatting with neighbors as they walk their dogs, etc.

  3. I am a new reader (found you through a long process.. lol. I was looking for black and white kitchen ideas, because I want to redo my 30 year old kitchen...and, well... too long a story), but I have added you to my favorites. I've been going back through your archives and love, love, love your site!
