Overview of the Screened-In Porch

I transformed a screened-in porch off the back of the home into a Spanish-influenced lounge. It’s a place to escape at the end of the day with relaxing music or drinks when entertaining. My goal was to create a design both eclectic yet playful. The art was my starting point, bringing in a spirited and fun element. To create a moody vibe, I grounded the space with dark flooring from Metro Brick and topped it off with a funky chandelier by Heather Levine. The custom-painted chairs are one of my favorite elements, thanks to Spirit of Salt. Seating is vital for any lounge space, and Janus et Cie has the perfect woven chairs to round out the area. The greenery extends the lush outdoor area inside with trees from Scape Supply Co. A huge thank you to my friends at Hudson Construction Group; I couldn’t have done this without you. Also, thank you to Adam Sirak, Ann Sacks, Associated Truss & Lumber, Benjamin Moore, Bradley USA, Brendan Bass, David Iatesta, Edelman Leather, Heather Levine, Kyle Bunting, Metro Brick, Monogram, Moore & Giles, Neovations, Perennials Fabrics, Sarche Concrete, The Burled Co., and The Shade Store. — Tracy Hardenburg Designs
