Southwest Porch Designs
Combine the Best of Several Cultures

Southwest porch designs make you think you are in Portugal, Spain, Italy, or Mexico with their stucco archways and tiled floors.

While we are partial to country porches, the vibrant colors and designs of Southwest flavor are truly appealing. Gorgeous in fact.

Can You Describe Southwest Style?

When you think of Southwest Decor...
  • Think of textures - like terra cotta, woven fabrics in beautiful bright colors and those roofs of clay tiles
  • Gorgeous painted pottery
  • Characteristic colors: greens like cactus, warm yet colorful earth tones, adobe reds, brilliant turquoise, big bursts of yellow and muted oranges
  • Furniture: you'll often see leather upholstery. Distressed furniture accented by metals is common.
  • Low-pitched or flat roofs and parapets (sometimes hipped)
  • Red roof tiles
  • Little or no overhanging eaves
  • Carved doors and stucco siding
  • Arches, especially above doors, porch entries and main windows
  • Asymmetrical shape with cross-gables and side wings
  • Spiral columns, pilasters, carved stone, and ornaments
  • Tile floors
