Home DecorScreened Porch Interior Details June 16, 2016Today, I’m breaking down all of the interior details and sources we used in the screened porch to make it feel like a cozy and stylish outdoor room. As I said in yesterday’s post, I was going for an eclectic Modern Farmhouse style. I started with a rustic base. Then, I added lots of texture, pattern, and some color on top of it. I already had these two ratan armchairs from AE Outdoor and they’re so comfortable! I knew they’d be the perfect cozy spot for this lounge area. I wanted to give a little pattern to the chairs, so I found these two Chindi rugs from At Home ($6.99 each!) and they were the perfect size to slipcover these. My mom helped me sew a lot of the things needed for this space. These are too thick to go through most sewing machines, so we folded them in half and hand-stiched the three open sides. I love the boho texture they add and if I ever need a change, I can easily snip the stitches and have the original outdoor pillows back again. These rugs are really durable and can just be thrown in the washing machine, so I felt like they were durable enough to be outdoors. I wanted this end of the room to be the focal point of the room. With the high transom window, I knew we needed some sort of art in between the chairs and window. I love the planks, but there was a big open space. I took three canvases I had stored in the craft closet and got to painting with some samples I had left from the playroom wall! I wanted them to look like a set and sort of have a continuous pattern, so I laid all three out on the table and painted the basic pattern. Then added some sprayed gold, which is my favorite part. I debated going really colorful with these, but they were one of the last things I added and realized something subtle with a hint of color would be best. The blush macrame pillow is a Target find. The two blue velvet floor pillows are from At Home and were clearanced for $7 each! I can’t find them on the website, but they had several in our local store. I love the pop that they add in here. These three pillows aren’t outdoor, but I sprayed them some with scotch guard to help them hold up and even though it’s covered, I’ll probably bring them in if we have a big storm with a lot of moisture. I knew we wanted some sort of end table between these chairs. The base is a terracota chimney flute that we saved when we demo’ed the house. There was an old fireplace hidden in the wall that we found when we started taking her apart. Chris is so good at saving those things to use later. We got a round wooden tabletop from Lowe’s, painted it white and added it to the top. I’m not seeing the exact top we used online, but it was in the lumber section in our store and was $20. This vintage ratan sofa is one of my favorite things! I found it at a local antiques store for $50! I still can’t believe the steal I got on this. It’s 7 feet long and has so much character to me. I really considered painting it because the finish is definitely not perfect, but in the end, decided to leave it natural, imperfections and all. I found all of the fabric for cushions at this huge monthly designer fabric remnant sale in our area. It’s $5/lb. of fabric, so I got four yards of that great dyed outdoor fabric for $7! My mom helped me measure and make cushions. We got foam for the seat and made a cover and did euro pillows for the back. The name of the fabric is Premier Prints Tribal Ecru and you can find the fabric here. The cushions for this sofa were one of the most expensive furnishings that we had to buy. We went with 5″ deep foam for comfort and a piece this size was $90. We have a local fabric store that keeps it in house and will cut whatever size you need. I found the three Euro pillows at that same store for $10/each. Gosh, I love that print! The pomegranate pillows were made from remnants from that same fabric sale and the fabric for them was only a few dollars. I love the color in them and it was an outdoor fabric as well. The little yellow macrame pillow with fringe is from At Home. I really wanted a rug in here, but I knew it needed to be outdoor to really hold up. I found this great berry striped rug at Rug Studio. It was such a great price for a 6×9 rug at $239 (with an extra 20% off). I’ve never had an outdoor rug like this before, but gosh I love it. In the room, it looks awesome, but it almost feels like a plastic material. It can just be hosed off and is so durable. I love the color and subtle pattern it brings to this room. And I really love how it ties with the rest of the berry throughout our house. Oh and that great big pale pink planter above is Allen & Roth Low Bowl Planter from Lowe’s. Once I had the rug and some of the details figured out, I pictured a dark olive green coffee table. I wanted it to bring some color into the room, but also be sort of neutral. Does this combo remind anybody of our living room rug and fireplace? Yes, I love this color combo! I found this coffee table at a thrift store for $19 and painted it Pristine Wilderness from the HGTV Line for Lowe’s. It didn’t turn out as dark as I hoped from the paint chip, but I ended up loving how it looks against the rug and the room. Recently, I haven’t had good luck at thrift stores, but I hit one as I was finishing this space and found nearly all the details you see here! That little bamboo tray, the set of mint Chinese tea cups, the boxed set of bamboo coasters, the tiny pot, it all came from the same stop! The potted candle came from At Home. This little bamboo end table came from a local antiques store for $10. Like the sofa, I considered painting it. I didn’t love that all of the furniture in this room was pretty much natural-colored. I usually like more of a mix than that. But I couldn’t decide on a color and just really didn’t want to paint this little table. It was in such good condition. Now, I’m glad I didn’t. There’s enough color in here for me. That octagon planter came from At Home and we already had the blue one. Both of the planters on the table came from that same thrift store stop! And the lantern is from Gordman’s. One of my favorite things is the Greenville, South Carolina sign as you leave. I found it a few months ago at Rock House Antiques, a fun local spot. It was $15 and I loved it so much! Chris loves Greenville stuff, so I bought it for him for our anniversary. Anyone who’s local should seriously check it out! In this little dining area, I used pretty much all things I had. I bought this farm table at the longest yardsale years ago. I love it’s galvanized top and it’s perfect for a small dining spot. I paired these two metal, modern dining chairs with it and I love the mix. You can read about the lantern/chandelier overhead in yesterday’s post. And that little planter came from the same thrift store run. And those two tiny landscapes I’ve had forever – previous thrift store finds. The fan is from Lowe’s and we had the vintage pulley (an old yardsale find). It was Chris’ idea to hang the fan this way and we love it! It adds character and personality. Another favorite that you can see well in this photo is the hanging gold windchimes. Those are from At Home and I love the boho vibe they add! Plus, the subtle sound of them in the breeze is so nice. All of the plants in the space came from Lowe’s. I so love their garden center! I’ll total up the entire budget, including all of these furnishings, for this project in another post.
