Living in the South, you need a place you can shade yourself from the hot sun.  My Porch is just that place.  I added a daybed and filled it with Sunbrella  Canvas Blue Pillows and Brown Damask Pillows for a comfy feel.  When the sun gets too hot – I close the Sunbrella Canvas Blue Outdoor Drapes and it keeps, not only the porch cool, but my kitchen as well.  Lastly, I added the indoor/outdoor Verona Rug – it transformed the porch into a room.  Can’t you just taste the cool lemonade?
