Picture Perfect Porches: Dining Porches and Entertaining Patios

I'm picking back up my porch series, which seems to be an ongoing project that will probably end up following me into my thirties.  In the next few weeks (hopefully), I think I am going to finish a draft I started months ago- the first of several describing the actual history behind porches.  This week I'm just going to share a few images I loved.  This week's features came entirely from this Southern Living article.  I think the whole concept of having a dining porch or an entertaining porch is so neat.  They're so elegant.  I'd love to have one some day!

I love the French doors on this one.  It's sort of like our sunroom, but way more sophisticated. 

The idea here is to use the little building as a bar for patio parties!

The rustic style could be my favorite!
