Take it outside: A walk in the park


As this Palmetto Bluff home was built alongside one of the community’s many lush walking parks, capitalizing on the scenery played an outsized role in this home’s design from the start. “They were moving from Washington, D.C., and wanted to essentially live outside,” said Allison Bonner of Pearce Scott Architects. “When I go over there to visit, they’re out on the porch. They’ve really embraced the outside.” Spruce up your space by incorporating these three elements outside your home.

For those about to rock

Traditional rocking chairs aren’t the only furniture that works on a Southern porch. Consider a bistro set if dining space is limited. Bistro tables are a perfect addition to an outdoor entertaining space, giving you a place to eat, mingle or just relax.

Get fired up

Transform your patio into a multi-season space with a fire pit. In addition to promoting cuddling and adding ambiance, fire pits are a natural focal point for outdoor spaces and provide hours of entertainment. Purchase a grill grate, set up a cooking station and whip up a delicious meal cooked over firewood.

Seating you can’t go wrong with

Adirondack chairs are an easy choice, especially in white. The contoured design makes them easier to recline in with plenty of extra room for cushions and pillows. Pick one made of composite woods and built to withstand our harsh climate, like the Classic Folding Adirondack Chair by Polywood.
