Picture Perfect Porches: Back Porches

Well, I neglected my poor little throwback blog AGAIN. I'm sure I'm the only one feeling any sadness about the matter, but I had to get back to it because it is something I care about. I decided I'd just start where I left of- the porch series. However, I did decide that I'm not going to do the post about the history of porches that I initially planned to do. I started looking into it and there is SO much information. It's fascinating and it's something I really want to "study", but I just don't have time for it right now. Instead, I'm going to share more images of my favorite types of porches.

Here are some back porches that I love:

I really like the white furniture, especially the wicker!

This isn't typically my style, but I thought it was unique and I particularly love the hammock.

The swing is a little more traditional and I really like how soothing it is! The description on the website called this look "nautical/coastal" and declared "Turn your home into a sea side retreat no matter your locations..."

Another light and airy porch! The pillows aren't my favorite, but I love the Adirondack chairs and idea behind the curtains

This circular porch is so neat and different!

This is one of my favorites!

This one is PERFECT for the beach!

I think this is my ABSOLUTE favorite.

I love what they did with these shutters!

Aren't these reclaimed doors gorgeous?

The lattice really draws me to this one.

I love the chaise lounges and again, the curtains. This porch looks perfect for a party!

This one is neat because it's like a real room that just flows from the rest of the house.

Okay, so those are my favorite back porch pictures. I'll be continuing the series with more types of porches, but I may do a few other posts in between!
