Porch swing covered in barkcloth

Swing Time

The large veranda on the front porch is the perfect spot for a large daybed swing. Hung with rope and fastened to actual boat cleats, the swing is filled with plenty of pillows and 1940s-inspired barkcloth-covered cushions.

Breezeway

A T-shaped breezeway runs through the middle of the house and connects the front and back porches. With several seating and lounging options, the screened-in breezeway offers many places to sit and relax away from the Florida sun.

Warm Welcome

The covered breezeway combines the best of the indoors and out. Because it is protected from the elements, you have the freedom to display art and furniture not usually intended for the porch.

Screened Porch

Layering textures and colors gives this outside sitting area a living room feel. Plenty of seating and added accents -- such as a sea grass rug, floor lamps, and balloon vases -- make this a desirable place to relax.

Well Connected

Pieces of furniture are strategically scattered on the porches and breezeway for flexible lounging options. Located off the breezeway (between the screened porch and dining patio) is a beach house staple: the outdoor shower.

Outdoor Shower

Custom-designed silk screens act as outdoor shower curtains. Photographer Tommy Crow captured the feeling of 1940s and '50s glamour by dressing models in vintage bathing suits.

Dining area on the uppper porch
Antoine Bootz

Upstairs Balcony

Located directly off the indoor living and dining areas, the large upper balcony can be used for dining and lounging. Because the railing is high, the bar-height table and chairs maximize viewing potential and allow glimpses of treetops and the Gulf.
