Interesting and different tables
This Houston terrace is the work of designers Lindsey Herod and Celerie Kemble who put together two square tables so that the area would work for parties when more people are coming over. The chairs are from McKinnon and Harris.
Vibrant, colorful throw pillows
Look around your garden and gather what kind of colors are seen most often. Then go shopping for pillows and try to coordinate those colors. Changing your pillows every season can always give the impression like you redecorated your whole patio.
Make that area perfect for having breakfast
Just like Wendy Owen turned her garden area at her Sonoma property into a French café inspired breakfast patio. She used French chairs and a stone table. Astier de Villatte is the brand of the dishes.
Vintage, artistic chairs
The patio on the picture is very much inviting and realized but at the same time modern and cool. If you like the vibe of this style look for statement chairs that stand out. You can also get your hands dirty and do some painting yourself.
The way you decorate your patio is for sure important but if the view is breathtaking that is half of your work done. Everyone enjoys a good view.
Use statement tiles
If you want your patio to be a stand-out piece of your home, put down colorful or vibrant tiles on the floor and that will certainly make it its own.
Teak table for your patio
This patio is very inviting yet modern and looks professional. Andrew Howard, the designer in charge achieved this by using a teak table and wicker armchairs from Kingsley-Bate.
Interesting patio chairs
A good way to make your patio interesting and inviting is to paint your adirondeck chairs in a color that matches the rest of your home. Your guests will be drawn to go there.
This Charleston garden was transformed when the designer Jill Sharp Weeks incorporated string lights that set the perfect mood and made space look very cozy but put together.
Seating that is elevated
The color scheme and materials used make this patio blend and fit in with its surroundings beautifully. The fact that elevated seating is used makes this area look more like a living room in nature.
Make your own concrete jungle
The natural landscape perfectly fits in with the modern and sleek furniture of this dinning area. The string lights give this patio a more soft look.
Get a hammock
Using a slim hammock will transform your terrace into feeling like you are in Santorini. Paint everything white and you won’t know the difference.
If you would like to add a bit of drama to your patio then sofa swings are the right choice for you. They will bring more fun and interesting aspect to your outdoor seating.
A fire bowl for your patio
If you want to bring the cozy levels to the max then incorporate a fire bowl to your outdoor area.
Cabana inspired look
If you would like to make your patio have a more clubhouse vibe try a cabana inspired look with a straw roof bar and soft lighting.
Use this type of tile to accent that blue and white part of nature. Use wicker furniture to add an interesting touch.
Make your furniture match your house.
Fire pit for your patio
