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.
