Classic screened-in porch idea in Chicago with decking and a roof extension

Screened Porch Sanctuary

Traditional Porch, Chicago

This screened porch was created as a sanctuary, a place to retreat and be enveloped by nature in a calm, 
relaxing environment. The monochromatic scheme helps to achieve this quiet mood while the pop 
of color comes solely from the surrounding trees. The hits of black help to move your eye around the room and provide a sophisticated feel. Three distinct zones were created to eat, converse 
and lounge with the help of area rugs, custom lighting and unique furniture. Cathy Zaeske
