"I was inspired by its Jeffersonian proportions and classical elegance," designer Andrew Law says of this grand porch, which he designed for the D.C. Design House. Its size led him to create two sitting areas, and drapery panels enhance an indoor-outdoor flow. A weathered driftwood finish gives wicker pieces a gracefully aged look. The porch lanterns are from Niermann Weeks.
