I love outdoor living, i spent most of my time outdoor if am at home,I will only be inside for cooking and sleeping. That is why i love garden,porch,deck and patio so much,they bring tranquility,serenity to me.A home to me is not about having expensive leather sofa,imported javanese teak dining set,gold wrought iron grilles,endless airconds or the biggest flat screen that you can find but it is about warm sofa,cosy corner,inviting porch,lovely outdoor dining,lushious garden,these are the foundation to a "home sweet home". Collections like plates and cups,lighthings and carpets are only accesories to the house,they should not rule your house,these decos should not become a display that prohibits you from touching it,it should be part of the everday use.lately i have been visiting many lovely porches belong to home owners in california,they are really lovely,they are so natural and warm,i love them because they are not so "heavy' with decorative items..they are just relaxing. I am building my dream porch and deck too,hope they will turn out to be as lovely as those i saw. With more rezki i hope to build outdoor bath for the girls as they love to take their bath outdoor, i can't have a pool at the house, first the area is not that big,secondly i don't feel safe having pool with small children around and thirdly they are expensive and requires high maintenance. I have been thinking about the outdoor both for the twins, i already have great idea,insyallah if we have more rezki i will realize the dream. Until my porch is ready lets have a look at these lovely california porch below.
The Porch brings the outdoor feel closer to the house.
