Rugs on the Porch

We've looked at rugs in unexpected places before, but how about out on the porch? Even just a painted rug makes even an outdoor hangout feel like a cozy living space:

Painted "rugs" can take on any size and pattern you need, and they wear just like, well, a painted porch floor. Actual rugs may bring a softer and more comfortable feeling to the porch, but they'll be tougher to clean and maintain. Either way, we love the introduction of a little extra color and texture in this unexpected location.
