How a Loggia Lets the Summer Last a Little Longer

Loggia’s originated in Italian architecture. Here is a picture in the classic sense.

Loggias are a roofed open gallery overlooking a courtyard. What makes a loggia such a smart idea is they bring the outside into the inside of the home.  In the fall when the days are still warm, they let the summer last a little longer.

These fabulous pieces reflect the many different design styles for a loggia. Here are some of my favorite pieces for decorating a loggia, as we ease out of the last warm days of summer.

This is a great piece of wall art and you do not have to worry about the elements damaging it.

A loggia is a great place to display outdoor sculpture like this sunburst.

The antique style mirror and frame would look great hanging against the rustic stone or shingle on the wall of a house.

The open flame in this organic shaped wall sconce is hypnotizing.

This reclaimed wood would only look better with age; there is nothing precious about this wood, so you would not feel bad about spilling a glass of wine.

Wouldn’t it be a more enjoyable transition easing out the last warm days of summer with some of these pieces?

Whether it’s a loggia or any other room in a house, my Interior Design philosophy is, “it’s all in the details.” If what we have done in a loggia helps prove it, you might like to see some other examples of mine.
