Vacation a Step Away


“Light affects my mood, and I like living spaces that make me feel like I’m outdoors,” Billie explains. Let her ideas be your guide to give your porch a brighter outlook.

Architectu­ral Accents: Blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living by propping a weathered mantel, window and shutters against a screened-in wall.

World of Color: Paint the ceiling, floor and vintage furniture complement­ary shades of soft blue.

Curtain Call: Hang citrus-hued sheer curtains to add movement, shade and a hint of privacy.

Fiber Art: Anchor a central seating area with a vivid area rug.

Technology Trick: Hang string lights and a chandelier to foster nighttime coziness.
