Plantation shutters on the porch, privacy and  shade yet still able to get a breeze.

The perfect porch - complete with plantation shutters. Get your privacy and shade, while still getting a breeze.

This reminds me of our back deck, minus the traditional raked ceiling...

Mushroom cap marshmallow pops #fairy #party

Why not have Pink marshmallow toadstools as a snack idea for your little ones fairy-party? Marshmellow+strawberry dipped in pink white chocolate+ sprinkles!

Front Porch: Again, seals the deal - no banister. Stone water table, wood porch and white (lots of upkeep - think coastal house) painted? Be consistent with wood stain colors.

Love the high ceilings and palm frond in the vase./

Lovely coastal home located in WaterColor, Florida along the Gulf Coast, designed by Georgia Carlee of GCI Design.

I would just KILL for a deck / verandah like this. So dreamy.  Probably not with these chairs (don't look comfy enough) but the deck, the tin roof, the fence bit, the fact that you could sit out on this verandah when it's pouring with rain with a glass of something nice and a magazine and watch the storm roll in without getting wet.  One of my fantasies - yet to be lived.

Back Porch - Love the white wicker furniture. Also, maybe we should put down some flooring/patio decking on the concrete patio pad.
