My feeling on patios/porches is this: They’re the stress-proof room. When was the last time you had a seat in a whimsical porch with light wispy colors and soft wicker furniture while sipping a fresh mint lemonade and thought to yourself – this really makes me want to have a complete emotional breakdown.

Green foliage from floor to ceiling? Don’t mind if I do! Pinterest.com
Delicate eye-treats hanging from a clothes wire. Divine! Better move that hat before someone sits on it, dum dum. Katie Said So.
So bohemian-chic I can barely stand it! It has inspired me to write a song. Quick. Find me a guitar. Oh. Wait. Nevermind. There’s one lying on this ottoman. And it appears to be a bit chilly. Home Design Favorite.
IIIIII meeeeaaaan……All I want to do for the rest of my life is lay beneath these twinkle lights and watch old trucks drive by. Pinterest.
Barn yard chic? I’m yearning for some glass hanging lanterns. Although I think I could do without the wily tumbleweed waiting to poke me in the foot. Katie Said So.
Oh. Don’t mind me. I think I’ll just sit here and sip on my cucumber water and listen to sounds of the rainforest while my sheets are turned town. I’m exhausted from that afternoon massage. Thanks so much. 2 Cats and a House.
Those colors delight my senses! Love when I see great use of small spaces. Katie Said So.
Yes to dark wicker, yes to padded ottoman pillows, yes to casual curtain draping, yes to embroidered lanterns, yes to felafel. What? There’s no felafel? This just really makes me want a felafel. Pinterest.
I love an all-white patio. Although I’m pretty sure the Queen of Hearts is hiding behind those shrubs. Decor Pad.
All I really want in life (aside from everything else I’ve ever mentioned) is a floating porch swing for my little Suite Potato porch. I tried to talk Special Man Friend into building me one but he says I am a furniture hoarder and refuses to enable my disease. Nevermind that, Special Man Friend. You’re just tired and delusional from all the fire fumes. Bet you wish you had an awesome porch swing to relax
Never end a sentence with a preposition on with. Pinterest.
My patio is in the middle of a mini facelift. More like a little botox sesh. Just a little boop boop change here and there. Lighten and tighten!
