2011 Ultimate Beach House Master Porch
Photographer: Tria Giovan, Stylist: Heather Chadduck

The Master Porch

Multitasking Ottoman: Thanks to its generous proportions, this light-weight wicker piece functions as a coffee table, a spot to prop up feet, or an extra place to perch and take in the ocean view.

Durable Surface: Made of a synthetic material that looks like wood, this porch floor is resistant to mildew, moisture, splitting, scratches, and stains.

Window Dressing: The shutters’ rich navy color and off-beat hardware make them worthy of a double take. They’re functional, too—they cover the windows’ entire width to offer storm protection.
