I want to give my screen porch a face lift. It currently is sort of a dumping ground for the grill and various other lawn/outdoor things. We have plans to enclose the porch and make it into an office/guest room at some point but not anytime soon and we're about to enter that time of year in Florida where we can finally be outside and enjoy the weather. I don't want to spend a lot of money since eventually the space will be converted but I would like to make it into a cozy and casual outdoor escape.
Here is a quick pic of the space - there is currently some hideous red terra cotta tile that I would like to cover up with an outdoor rug and I would like to paint the green space between the screen and the floor white.
I would love the space to have a Moroccan feel with really great ethnic textiles and accessories. I love the couch in picture number three, I' hoping to find or build something similar and I can easily use it outdoors on our patio once we convert the screen porch.

This is a tentative floor plan I created for the space. It's a tiny porch, about 75 square feet, but it should be able to comfortably fit a small cafe table and chairs for al fresco dining, a small couch and I'd like to be able to build a small bench seat to go along one wall for additional seating when we entertain.
