Serene Outdoor Oasis

Timeless Comfort

Who designed the space? Laura Ramsey Furniture & Interiors designed this inviting porch space.

Do you have a favorite piece/design element of this room/space? It has to be the comfortable seating.  This area works like an indoor room with the added benefit of being outdoors.  Laura Ramsey is all about stylish comfort and this area illustrates that beautifully.

Relaxing in Style

“This space definitely has a ‘wow’ factor, yet it is still practical. The homeowners really understood the importance of creating a room where you can sit and relax with your family. By using comfortable upholstery like LEE and Lane Venture, the space is very impressive but also remains inviting to guests. Notice the copper outdoor lanterns from Visual Comfort. These are classic, add a bit of sparkle without being garish, and will age nicely over time. ”

Were you inspired by anything in particular when designing this room? We wanted to keep the look timeless yet liveable. That is what led us to use varying shades of neutrals. This allows the homeowners to change the pillows and accessories up with each season or as the trends change. Even the rugs are a neutral pattern that will stand the test of time.

Did you encounter any challenges in designing this unique space? The constructed space was full of texture – rock floors, cooking area, and a textured, beamed ceiling. The challenge for us was furnishing it with interesting items without causing it to read as visually “messy”. Sensory overload was not our goal for an area meant for relaxing.  We used LEE and Lane Venture seating pieces, covered in subtly patterned Sunbrella fabrics for durability and interest.  Keeping these looking relatively “quiet” & simple allowed us to go bold elsewhere and add interesting accessories.
