A cool & airy, pretty & inviting screened porch could become an extra living room with as much charm as any indoor space.

The screened porch from the 1950s — sparkling cool with its brick floor and chalk-white walls — had a raftered ceiling in pale sky blue.

Two hickory-and-reed chairs were painted chalk-white also, and the ottoman was cushioned in white canvas.

All the delights of alfresco dining without any of its discomforts could be had in this vintage room. One end of this porch provided for meals and entertaining, with storage space for china, glass and any necessary equipment in a blue-painted French provincial cabinet.

There was even storage space for extra pillows and lawn mats in the redwood chest, which also doubled as a seating bench.

Two white-polka-dotted navy-blue sofas with frames of woven reed and rattan would work as beds on hot nights. The surfboard-shaped table dinner table had a wrought iron base and was weather-resistant.

Night lighting for the porch came from wrought-iron lanterns and a modern glass lamp.
