This 'n That Thursdays: CB2-Inspired Sunroom and Porches


Our Serenbe house does not lack for transitional outdoor spaces!  The front porch above is the perfect space to sit outside and interact with neighbors strolling down the lane.  I have always had a hankering for porch rocking chairs, and luckily CB2 has just the right chairs for me:

Clockwise from top left: Valalta Rocking Chair; Cement Grey Side Table; Taormina Doormat; Concrete Pot with Saucer; Center: Yellow Leaf Hammock.

Wouldn't two rocking chairs look great in front of the two windows?  Add a side table, a sturdy door mat, and a couple of planters flanking the door and the front porch is done!  But wait a minute,  I think there is just enough room to hang a hammock for my husband at the far end, near the entrance to the screened side porch:


Screened porches are practically a Georgia icon, and ours has the requisite ceiling fan to keep warm and humid southern air moving, making summer outdoor living more enjoyable:

Two entry doors from the living room, and a view of the back yard.

A ceiling fan to keep the air moving!

This space is like an extension of the living room, so it would be furnished as another seating area:

Clockwise from top left: Tropez Natural Sofa; Moravian Star 20" Outdoor Pillow; Criss Knit Black Pouf; Kronos 28" Planter; Cube Table-Planter; Shroom Coffee Table; Background: Diamond Days Reversible Outdoor Rug.

Our Serenbe house was built with an open side porch leading to the back yard, but we opted to enclose the porch to create a temperature-controlled sunroom:

This photo is not great, but the entry door to the laundry/mudroom
is just beyond the foreground on the right.  There are walls of
windows to the left and front of the photo.

The space is small, but could easily serve as a breakfast and seating area as well as a spot for storing a few gardening items:

Clockwise from top left: Fuze Grey Counter Table; Bistro Universal Zinc Chair Cushion; Vapor 24" Acrylic  Counter Stool; Fuze Grey Bench with Fuze Bench Cushion; Salento Storage Bench; Center: Cube Table-Planter; Center background: Scatter Green Rug.

Next week I will conclude my virtual interior design of our Serenbe cottage with style boards for the two guest bedrooms on the second floor.  I almost wish there were more rooms to do, as I am enjoying myself!
