Swing Time

Swing Time


The large veranda on the front porch is the perfect spot for a large daybed swing. Hung with rope and fastened to actual boat cleats, the swing is filled with plenty of pillows and 1940s-inspired barkcloth-covered cushions.



Layering textures and colors gives this outside sitting area a living room feel. Plenty of seating and added accents -- such as a sea grass rug, floor lamps, and balloon vases -- make this a desirable place to relax.




Pieces of furniture are strategically scattered on the porches and breezeway for flexible lounging options. Located off the breezeway (between the screened porch and dining patio) is a beach house staple: the outdoor shower.




Located directly off the indoor living and dining areas, the large upper balcony can be used for dining and lounging. Because the railing is high, the bar-height table and chairs maximize viewing potential and allow glimpses of treetops and the Gulf.
