If you are fortunate enough to have a patio, you should definitely take advantage of it. Moreover, anyone can transform their patio into a one-of-a-kind paradise. You can do this by making a few simple changes to the design and landscaping. This article will show you how to make the most of any outdoor area, from a small patio to a large garden. Get the most out of the summer weather by sprucing up your outdoor space. However, even in the dead of winter, an outdoor area with thoughtful preparation can be put to use. However, here are some chic patio and garden design ideas you may attempt at home. Fresh air and fresh style ahead.
1. Blooming Bougainvillea
With the help of some antique accent lighting and plenty of bougainvilleas, designer Madeline Stuart transformed the backyard of this Southern California home by architects Wallace Neff and John Byers into a wonderful garden refuge. She put up an area rug and selected dark brown couches to help insulate the patio.
2. Modern Meets Natural
This stunning home in the Pacific Northwest is the work of Andy Beers of Ore Studios. Moreover, he expertly combined the home’s contemporary, art gallery-style architecture with the region’s stunning woodland backdrop. The home’s cantilevered design and steel and glass frame give it a weightless quality. This was while the patio’s simple railing and brightly striped table make it feel like an extension of the indoor space.
3. Multi-Level, Multi-Material
This Sheldon Harte-designed sanctuary in Palm Springs is made lush by the inclusion of trees. However, the terra cotta tiles and stone pool deck here give the space a genuine local flavor. The two patios visually distinguish from one another thanks to the use of contrasting materials; these patios also have different needs (the pool area, for example, requires a nonslip surface).
4. Many Uses Cases
John Houshmand, a furniture designer, built his Mexican retreat with an emphasis on outdoor living (in style). However, this choice accommodates large groups comfortably and you can quiet down for a nap. Moreover, to complement the warmer tones of the brick retaining wall, golden couches, wooden tables, a terra cotta base, and a bamboo awning, stone columns are installed.
5. Prepped For Parties
Prepare a stereo for summer barbecues and dinners outdoors. Romanek Design Studio’s version has enough space and lighting to host a party. Moreover, experts advise matching the speaker color to the outside wall color.
6. Terracotta Tiles
This magnificent backyard by Nickey Kehoe features a pool as its central feature. Moreover, the terracotta patio tiles and simple furnishings provide a nice contrast to the deep aqua floor tiles and the verdant tree canopy that surround the house.
