Blah wall on porch needs weather proof art
June 10, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We live in MA, and replaced our back deck w/a 3 season porch. I've got a blank yellow clap wall against the house side that needs help. In the late spring through fall we put in screens. In the fall through spring plexi-glass windows all the way around. All spring, summer & fall long the porch gets damp from dew overnight. By the time we have frost & snow the plexiglass is in and it is dry in there. I'm looking for decor ideas for this wall with an off-set couch in between 2 sconces. We pre-wired cable and power access for a T.V. that we aren't going to buy yet and I want to hide. This is the only furniture layout that works. I'm looking for ideas and vendors for outdoor art that can handle our climate. Our temperature swings are huge, -30F at times in the winter to 100+F in the summer. I am most concerned with the damp. These 1 year old Sunbrella cushions already have mold from the dampness, they do not get direct rain. I thought about putting my husband's stuffed Marlin on this wall but I'm worried about the dampness. What are your ideas?
