This is a swinging wood screen door from Marvin. We ordered it primed and painted the final coats in the color we desired.

Through the Woods Fine Wood Floors, Inc.
I'd ask at a good (not big box) paint store. I find that product manufacturers generally have the best product knowledge. They usually have tech hotlines that you can call too.

Sorry, I couldn't tell you. These came from Smith & Hawken furniture with that color.

Actually, this wicker furniture is from MAINE COTTAGE, I believe, and they have a color chart of many different colors to choose from. You will find this color at their website.

What treatments did you do to the deck? It looks really glossy and not like your typical flooring. I like how the wicker chairs can be seen in the reflection. I like the lighter color of the chairs more than the dark one. I think that they are both necessary for the design though. http://www.palmcasualswfl.com/wicker.php

The deck paint is a gloss finish. It looks especially nice since it just got refinished for the photography.

Hello,
Our client purchased these from Maine Cottage in Falmouth, ME - and this particular store has since gone out of business. However, I did see they still have a presence on-line and there are some stores still open.
Hope that helps!

Hello,
No, the floor of this back porch is a painted tongue and groove deck with a slight slope to help pitch water away from the building.
Hope that helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"The client lives outside a lot," Smith says. Thus, in the renovation, a major regrading of the land was in order, creating level areas for a series of outdoor rooms. This welcoming covered porch is off the garage. The door leads into the mudroom, and was intended for dog traffic.
Laura Fenton added this to Rocking Chairs Roll Onto Porches
Smith & Vansant Architects added a porch onto this home to connect it with its recently landscaped outdoor spaces. The architect notes that the wicker rockers give a "comfortable, timeless feel" to the outdoor space.
