    Like taramccarthy, I want to know how to find this West Elm rug. I searched their site and did not see it.

    I think that these chairs would go great on any porch you put them on. I am a huge fan of the bench. It's so simple looking but a the same time it's very inviting. I think that I could probably spend all day out on the porch instead of inside. http://www.elegantoutdoors.com/casual-outdoor-furniture/

    Pretty sure chairs came from Ballards. I bought the exact chairs 3 years ago so don't know if they still have them.

              3. Make your porch a little breezier. If you find you’re not spending as much time on your porch as you would like, two of the most likely culprits in summer are heat and bugs. Consider installing an outdoor ceiling fan to create a breeze and discourage pesky bugs from hanging around. Or hang up a set of outdoor curtains to create more shade and block that strong summer sun.Chill Out: 10 Cool Ways to Beat the Heat Outdoors

              1. This porch in Georgia may be low on color, but it is high in texture and layers, with lots of natural materials coming together to create a relaxing, boho space. The design was inspired by a safari in South Africa. The rug is from West Elm, the chairs are by Ballard Designs and the swing is custom. Read more about this porch

              14. A Spacious Porch Brings Family Life OutsideSouth Africa inspired this tasteful porch, with its cane-topped stools and bamboo chairs. Cool feature: A custom-designed hanging daybed. See more of this room

              Insulate with rugs and curtains. On a covered porch, adding an indoor-outdoor rug and thick outdoor curtains can help keep drafts at bay and provides a base layer of textiles to tempt you outdoors. Neutral colors for more permanent pieces look appropriate year-round and can be spiced up come spring with fresh pillows.

              Speaking of unique finds, the long console table is made of two headboards repurposed from an old bed-and-breakfast and topped with marble. The family loves to entertain, and Hene often uses it to set up a buffet or bar, or both. “We open up all of the French doors that lead into the house and let the party spill out here,” she says. “We may get a few bugs inside, but it’s worth it.”The cane-topped stools, bamboo chairs, woven rug and palette bring in some Out of Africa British colonial flavor. The wire urns flanking the swing usually have ferns in them, but on photo-shoot day there was a tornado warning, so they didn’t make it into the shot, which brings us to the issue of potential damage to porch furnishings.When it comes to designing porch spaces, Hene advises using indoor-outdoor fabrics and staying away from anything too precious. “You have to be OK with things getting damaged,” she says. For example, she recommends using ready-made inexpensive drapes on porches, as they will need to be replaced every few years. She also advises that you may have to replace cushions fairly often.Rug: West Elm; chairs: Ballard Designs; swinging daybed: custom design by Lindsey Hene Interiors
