Summer Porch Sittin'

“I want endless summer nights, sitting on the porch. Watching the storm coming in. Smelling the rain, with your hand in mine.”

Bridgewater is filled with one of the best vantage points for viewing incredible sunsets. It is no wonder the residents there want to reclaim their spot in tranquility to take full advantage of every second. Porches are an extension of your homescape that adds curb appeal not to mention a place to intentionally slow down and breathe.

Rediscover the art of porch sitting (back or front porch) and make it a thing! Enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or sit out back and enjoy a glass of wine while taking in the sunset on a long summer evening. Move everyday activities outside, such as reading a book, eating a meal, or just catching up with your friends and family. Pro tip: leave your cell phone or computer inside the house! Talk, breathe, listen to music, close your eyes, and just relax.

When designing your own personal outdoor oasis, think horizontally and vertically. Add a colorful rug, comfortable chairs with fluffy pillows & a blanket, rocking chairs, a fire pit, hanging flowerpots, and wind chimes, and don’t forget the outdoor lights. As the day’s activities end, your own personal escape awaits! Make it your own where naps are always encouraged!

Here are some photos of a few of our Bridgewater residents’ sweet escapes.
