A sun-porch re-visited!

A full day of shopping at our local antique shops and stores. This sun-porch is finally ready for re-visit. When Aaron and Angie built this house about five years ago, the porch was never really finished completely. The windows were never trimmed out and the plantation blinds were just recently hung. All of the walls are bead-board and all painted a crisp white linen. The furniture was from Summer Hill that used to be at mom's cottage. It is all painted in a beautiful shade of green and the cushions are upholstered in a yellow, green and Tiffany blue floral. We have been working hard and as soon as we get this project finished I will be sure to do a post.
Stop back for more on a sun-porch re-visited.
Many Decorating Blessings, Dana

Hello, forgive me for barging in your privacy here. It looks like all family is here except me but it's just that I can't help but make this comment, a simple one...

Good design indeed,Dana. I like the aura your place emits.

Plantation shutters are one option that can really improve the looks of your windows. These shutters look great, and usually look so nice you don't even need to add a valance or curtains like you do with blinds or shades. They are usually made of wood, wood composite, or imitation wood. They can be custom made to fit any window, even those with odd shapes and curves that are hard to fit with many window treatment options. There are many different types of finishes and colors, so they can be made to match the d├ęcor in your house.Virginia Plantation shutters
