ex libris — Porch Living

Porch Living by James T. Farmer III is a perfect book for spring. Clearly intended to be read while drinking a glass of sweet iced tea, it provides you with a close-up look at several different types of porches, while offering tips on how to make the most of your own porch or outdoor space.


Though on the slender side, the book’s five chapters — Classic Country & Rustic Porches, Casually Elegant Porches, Sleeping & Lazing Porches, Porches for Entertaining, and Garden Porches — nonetheless pack a strong visual punch.

And even if you don’t have a porch, there are still plant and flower ideas . . .


living ideas . . .


dining ideas . . .


and bedroom ideas . . .


that can be interpreted for your own spaces.

Now that the days are longer and the weather’s warmer, we’re all itching to spend more time outside. Porch Living shows you some stylish ways to make the most of it.
