Historic HouseFarmhouse Porch, Austin
What Houzz contributors are saying:
These classic rockers look stately against a traditional porch paint combination of gray floors and a sky-blue ceiling. Painting both the rockers and the dining set black gave this porch a coordinated look.
Give peeling paint a fresh coat of gloss. The front porch of this historic home is kept crisp by the black, white and gray palette as well as the glossy floor. Did you notice the gray slanted ceiling? I looked at this photo about four times before I realized that was not a shadow. See the rest of this historic home.
This Austin house is a favorite on my jog through the neighborhood. I was first drawn to the outstanding hardware on the front gate near the street, but a closer (creepier) look into the front yard revealed these black rockers — a perfect complement to all the period details.
A row of matching rockers beckons for casual conversation and contemplation.
