Summertime … and the living is easy, on a porch outfitted with simple luxuries in a fresh palette. From pillows to planters — find out where to get the best accessories for your outdoor spaces.

1. Vintage cotton feedbag fabric can be transformed into modern home accessories, such as these one-of-a-kind pillows ($185).
Hudson, Wellesley, MA. 781-239-0025; hudsonboston.com

2. Candlelight twinkling in a clean-lined “Nantucket” hurricane ($165) adds even more atmosphere to a pretty porch scene.
Simon Pearce, Windsor, VT. 802-674-6280; simonpearce.com

3. Furniturea uses local hardwood and environmentally friendly paint to create its bright-yellow double bench ($390), which does double duty as an occasional table.
Furniturea, Portland, ME. 207-774-7472; furniturea.com

4. Bright flowers pop when set in a buttermilk-and-sage wooden tub planter ($45).
Maine Bucket Co., Lewiston, ME. 800-231-7072; available at coopersmithandson.com

5. “Down East Doormats” ($49.95 to $79.95) are handcrafted from recycled float ropes (which are no longer used in the Maine lobstering industry because they can entangle North Atlantic right whales). They’re resistant to mildew, mold, and moisture.
The Maine Float Rope Company, Waldoboro, ME. 207-832-0600; mainefloatrope.com

6. When the classic hammock meets a beautifully designed contemporary sofa, the result is the “Camden” porch swing ($625 to $700; pillows $35 to $50), which is easily large enough for sleeping.
Penobscot Bay Porch Swings, Brunswick, ME. 207-729-1616; penobscotbayporchswings.com

7. A “Works Special Edition” quilt in sunflower/dandelion ($1200 twin size) by Denyse Schmidt, made in the historic factory building that once housed the American Fabrics Company, adds warmth to chilly summer evenings.
Denyse Schmidt Quilts, Bridgeport, CT. 203-335-2719; dsquilts.com

    Awww…c’mon, These are not yankee things, prices anyway. These are Yuppee-tourist things. I sure miss the old Yankee.

    Granted I am not a “yankee” but I have lived in New England, given birth to one son in Massachusetts and share my two sons with Vermont (I now live in PA), but I love this part of the magazine. Yes, some items are pricey but I am happy with any shopping help I can get and this section always gives me ideas.
