While surfing the Web for porch curtains, we came across some great photos on Southern Living's website. With all those hot summers spent on the veranda, Southerners know how to dress up a porch. We also appreciated their article on caring for outdoor fabrics and their solutions for giving a deck a face-lift.
Although drapes for the deck may not be as practical in Chicago, indoor/outdoor curtains can be cleaned and taken inside as the cold weather approaches.
The website's Design Assistant allows you to search images from Southern Living's sister publications as well. Here are some of the beautiful outdoor rooms we spotted online:

A turquoise and yellow color scheme in Southern Living.
