Above: An en­closed porch is the per­fect place to cre­ate a year-round liv­ing room. For a re­laxed look, unite eclec­tic fur­nish­ings with match­ing pil­lows and cush­ions made from denim and striped fab­rics. Right: Piece to­gether vin­tage mold­ings and shelves to form a tall, wall-mounted plant stand. Adorn the stand and other porch fur­nish­ings with co­or­di­nat­ing shades of milk­paint. Want to max­i­mize stor­age in the bed­room? Con­sider a con­sole ta­ble, like the one in front of David’s win­dow, which pro­vides an ex­pan­sive sur­face for dis­play­ing lamps, vases and col­lectibles, with plenty of space un­der­neath to stack suit­cases or other stor­age items. Also, make your bed­room ap­pear larger by cre­at­ing a back­drop for the bed in front of a win­dow. Dress the win­dow with bam­boo blinds and sheer cur­tains draped over a dec­o­ra­tive rod to fil­ter light and pro­vide pri­vacy.
