Heck to the yeah, hello, summer weekend! Between projects, be sure to fire up your barbeques — and to charge the camera batteries — because in this weekend’s Share Your Photos Festival, it’s patios, decks, sun porches, Florida rooms — all your summer spaces, gone retro, of course. Seems like everyone has patios and such on the like — over the past several months, I’ve received quite a few emails on this topic. April’s note was the most recent:
Hi Pam!First, so enjoy your blog. It’s been my daily go to for our 1954 home we recently purchased. I was wondering if you would consider doing a post requesting pics of mid century sun rooms, porches and patios.The living room post was such a hit, I thought this would be a perfect time to get inspired from what others are doing with their summer spaces. I just repainted our 1960′s Russell Woodard set and had the cushions redone in NOS vintage fabric for our little summer porch project. I think I was thrilled most to find an upholsterer. He was a godsend from Angie’s List, and the NOS vintage 60′s fabric was a deal on the bay. We purchased the home from the original owner, and of course first thought was to rip the indoor/outdoor out, but it’s kind of grown on me for now, and it’s comfy underfoot. Oh, and gotta love those roman wood shades There’s still a few things to do…and of course the dream is to replace that bear giving the high five with a Preway. The patio pic [see it below in the gallery] was an afterthought, that’s where I need inspiration; water feature, color…It will be great to get some ideas from your wonderful readers. Kate’s recent post of her darling tiki porch has me tempted to grab some of those tiki masks off Amazon! Thanks again for all the info and inspiration. p.s. tell Kate thanks for posting my “clean” L-Shaped Living Room today, such a treat I’m so excited for the uploads! That will be fun to see. Thanks so much again, Best to you & Kate,April
Thank you, April. Lucky girl you, all that beauteous vintage Woodard patio furniture… the NOS fabric… and you know I love those 1970s wood shades. Groovy, baby.
