Promising porches

As per yesterday's Porch post (one of many to come, I predict), we are re-painting our porch. I thought I should source some inspiration photos for this very purpose. Currently it is white, and to be honest it will probably stay white. The front of our house is brick, the window casings are white.  We are really only painting the dividing porch wall, a beam, and a couple of short column toppers on top of brick columns. But, just for fun, here are some ideas I found:
front-porch-glider-bench-challenge
Exterior painted bungalow
via Westview Bungalow -I like the white columns and beams, and the gray house-front
via All Things Wood - I like the wood ceiling but wonder if it will feel "heavy" in real life.

And now some dream photos where you can just picture curling up with a coffee or a cold drink!

I love that wood ceiling in the third photo. As long as the roof over your porch isn't too low, it could work. At the same time, if it does feel too dark, you could always paint or whitewash it - also a great option! :)

Ahhh...picture #4 makes my heart skip a beat!!! I want a porch (and actually a whole house!) that looks just like that! So pretty! I can't wait to see yours when it's done! I don't blame you for keeping it mostly white- white porches are so pretty and fresh looking.
