From summer parties to relaxing after a long day, your patio should be the perfect space to kick back and enjoy some time with friends and family. We’ve talked about things to consider when entertaining outside and some inspiring outdoor space designs, but we wanted to explore how your unique style can work as well outside, as it does inside. The goal is to create a seamless transition from indoors to outdoors to ensure the same comfort and style is present throughout your home’s entire design. Just as you’ve found ways to pull together each interior space in your home, you must not stop once you’ve stepped out the back door. Your patio or outdoor living space should just be an extension of your home’s beauty and cohesiveness. There are many different ways to make your patio space uniquely you, and we’re going to give you some great tips and inspiration to get you started.
With a marriage of form and function, this modern patio design is drool-worthy. It’s dynamic layout of hardscape and landscape offers an all-inclusive oasis of relaxation. Not to mention it has a hot tub smack dab in the middle of it all. The string lights with Edison bulbs give this space a charming twist to the geometric puzzle of surfaces and steps. Alongside the sharp angles of stone tiles, the loose pebbles and excessive greenery give the patio the perfect balance of organic elements versus geometric.
“For the more simplistic take on an outdoor design, look to this modern makeup for inspiration. By keeping it down to earth and playing with natural materials, this clean lined design will keep you in touch with mother nature while offering a collected space to escape to.”
A minimalist’s approach to a contemporary design, this patio is elegant in its use of sleek materials and a very practical purpose. What makes it more contemporary, rather than modern, is its innovative choice of seating. Made for comfort and style, the chairs are formed to the natural shape and angle of the body as it is seated. The bamboo that lines the wall of this patio, give it a natural essence that helps create a soothing environment for any guest. This design also allows for you to focus on the conversation at hand rather than the distractions of the outside world and its pressures to accessorize every inch of your home.
“Through direct approaches to your design you will streamline the end result and compile a beautifully unified melody of elements that will become your outdoor escape. To find a retreat from the hectic complexities of our everyday endeavors, we can pull together a breathable space that eliminates the pollution of unneeded noise and agitation.”
An eclectic design combines the best features of multiple style traits while still creating a cohesive and relaxing space. This patio features a bohemian hanging chair, an industrial accent table, a glamorous chandelier and a collection of decor that you might find in a modern farmhouse design. All of these elements have found a space where they work gracefully together, giving you a curated look and the perfect patio to compliment your eclectic style through and through.
“Creating this colorful arrangement is sure to be an exciting endeavor as you hunt for each tidbit of eccentricity to throw into the mix and make it perfectly customized to your liking.”
