Victorian Porch Exterior

For those designers who are not familiar with the United States, this is sort of a summary of the significance of the front porch in American life.
The front porch was a huge architectural feature of American homes that became popular in mid-19th century America.  Not only was the front porch a gathering place for the family who wanted to escape the stuffy interiors of hot Southern summers but it also promoted interaction with one's neighbors and  other members of the community.  Unfortunately, the rise of air conditioning and television destroyed this nostalgic architectural favorite that had become so important to American life.
The furniture on front porches that literally were a "must-have" were swings and rocking chairs. Also  popular was the Adirondack chair, which you see here on both sides of the door, and of course, various wicker furniture as seen on my blue "Victorian Porch" design.

    Yes! I never copy any design. I remix only to see the items that I don't know the name. Inspirations! I found what I was looking. Thank you, Lydia!!

    No, as long as you don't "save" it, it doesn't copy. I look at items I haven't seen before via the remix  all the time. Just exit without saving it and it will fine!  I am right now putting a room together with a bunch of unusual things, not just to display but for myself.  Sort of a collection of things. I eventually will do that with all the things I like to use at one time or another, because it saves time. One can spend hours searching for the right item when one first starts out, like I recently did.  Anyway, hope you found what you were looking for.
