“In this historic home where warmth and charm abound, the homeowners found themselves congregating in the small screened-in porch,” says Nicki Bongiorno. While the views to the lush backyard are magnetizing, the room could not fit the four generations of family and friends that regularly wished to gather there. Bongiorno sought to create a space that would triple the size of the outdoor room and give the family a place to comfortably eat, lounge, and play together.

In order to create an outdoor space that felt like an extension of the indoor space, a mix of old and new items were incorporated. In the dining area a teak hutch sits alongside a matching table that easily seats 16, and when it’s just the two homeowners, the small cafe table in the kitchen is just right. A no-frills space, the room features fabrics throughout that are durable, weather resistant, and washable. Bongiorno paired the layers of neutral textures, shades, and patterns with just a small amount of periwinkle blue to finish the space while keeping the emphasis on the beautiful outdoors.
