Screened Porch Ideas

Our backyard is slowly but surely getting some love.  Right now I am looking for some screened in porch inspiration.  How lovely would it be to sit outside with a bug-free breeze!  If we end up building one, I would like to have space for an eating table and chairs as well as plenty of comfortable space for sitting and hanging out.

I have saved these photos in a file for years and unfortunately don’t know where any (except the Southern Living ones) came from.  So pretty!

I love to compile inspiration photos to clarify what I like, what I am drawn to.  Looking at all my favorite photos, I do see some similarities: double doors, fireplace, squared-off roman columns, ceiling fans, and built-in sconces.

here… kitty, kitty 🙂  All *kitting* aside, though, these short walls at the base of the screens would help protect from our pets scratching the screens.

These 3 photos came from one of my favorite Southern Living articles I’ll post about later.
