We were definitely channelling California for the inspiration of this space. I grew up in California and it always has a huge effect in the way I see design – the function and style of a space. California style to me is all about lounging. It is relaxed, timeless, and has organic lines and lots of plants. We used old shutters as a backdrop for the table and hung planters for them that my client can use for flowers or air plants—California is ALL about the plants. The end result is a space where veranda dreams are made. See the full post here: Southern + California Living Porch.
