“The front porch is so evocative of lazy afternoons, cold iced tea and being lost in a book,” says Alicia Orrick. “Keep it comfortable and restful to the eye, letting sensuous textures and lines take the place of strong patterns. If it’s done right, who’d ever want to go back inside?” Orrick & Company, Greenwich, (203) 532-1188, www.orrickandcompany.com
