Outdoor living

Protected from the elements, the spacious porch provides enough room for entertaining, relaxing, and even sleeping outdoors.

Weathered copper lanterns from Sea Gull Lighting and pinecone accent lanterns from Williams-Sonoma Home evoke the wharf buildings along nearby Cannery Row.

The porch's composite wood flooring adds durability and longevity. The long, smooth planks form a splinter-free surface and balance the rough-hewn look of the barn's reclaimed timber.

Mottled browns and grays get a jolt from red French doors by Pella. The rich hue is a nod to the traditional barn color.
