Soften a bench
A teak bench at one end of the covered porch is a cozy curl-up space, thanks to a soft foam pad covered with Sunbrella fabric.
The bench is 6 feet long ― comfortable enough to accommodate almost anyone "from tip to toe," says owner/garden designer Brenda
Gousha. The pillows in the center are encased in a vintage floral blend that echoes the hues of the fresh-picked 'Eden' roses
nearby. A sea-grass mat covers the deck. Red bougainvillea grows on the lath behind.
