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. Birch branches would look great arranged in these containers. A loggia is a great place to display outdoor sculpture like this sunburst. You can have a stereo system, lighting, and Zen style sculpture, all in one piece of artwork. 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 chair is begging for someone to just slump down in it. I like the organic log feel of this table that has been dressed up with a silver finish. The timeless elegance of this formal pedestal and globe will always look beautiful. Sitting underneath these light pendants would be like gazing at clouds floating above. 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.
