Designer Steven Gambrel created an inviting outdoor space using unconventional decorating items.
Covered outdoor areas lend themselves to decorating, and many do decorate the back or screened porches – but many overlook the front entrance. While the white shingles and blue shutters of this 19th century cottage are charming on their own, Gambrel added unexpected details to create a welcoming entrance. The gnarled table, woven wicker basket and container plants bring textures, as well as soften the structure and stone patio. What better way to welcome home family and guests than with an enchanting entry.
