A pergola is especially useful to create a shaded and private area, while still being able to enjoy the sun. Once again, with such a structure, we rely on simple grey tiles and neutral patio furniture to pull everything together. Overall, this décor radiates peace and tranquillity. The ever-present florals and greenery really draw you into the natural surroundings, surely making you want to cozy up with a good book!

3- Countryside-inspired getaway

This countryside-inspired terrace is stunning and perfectly mirrors rustic outdoor settings. The white furnishings, and especially light-coloured wood, are super comforting. Despite the limited greenery, the view of the surrounding landscape is unimpeded. Who wouldn't want to lounge around and daydream on a beautiful summer's day?

4- An enchanted corner

While this outdoor lounge area is clearly on the smaller side, it’s nonetheless still welcoming. Simple tiles on a stone surface convey a natural look to the space and skirts modern accents. The whole is both casual and welcoming all at once, while the hanging lights create an enchanting setting.

5- Dimmed lighting for friendly gatherings

In order to create a space that’s conducive to late-night gatherings, hanging lights are once again featured. The pavers used are simple yet classic, just like the patio furniture and the decorative items. Scattered light fittings cast an eye-catching glow and add a romantic flair to the design as a whole. No doubt there'll be plenty of opportunity to socialize over a good bottle of wine.

6- A boho-chic setting to sip a cup of Joe

This bohemian setting is especially laid-back and features raw-looking, simple garden furniture. Still in line with this style, one can notice pastel colours, as well as light wood tones. The lovely mirror hung on the back wall and the hung lighting open up the space altogether, which is especially charming. One can easily picture themselves sipping their morning cup of coffee while lounging there!

7- A cozy, intimate setting

This stone patio is breathtakingly beautiful, not only due to its rounded shape but because the stones used are on the smaller side. As such, it renders the setting all the more impressive, aesthetically speaking. The hung lighting brightens up this intimate setting, which is embedded into an enchanting and beautiful space.

8- A hot tub hidden from prying eyes

The wide deck and smooth finishes, and sleek furnishing, really bring this modern setting to life. Albeit, the greenery takes centre stage, framing beautifully all the main elements featured in the décor. The sleek, refined design creates an intimate, organic environment ideal for socializing!

This type of design is especially rare! It’s rather ingenious the way they used the side of the pool to create a swim-up bar to allow for sipping delicious and refreshing drinks! The nearby deck is quite big and elegant, and will definitely please those who are fans of modern settings. While enjoying a dip in the pool, you can still chat with friends seated around the bar. This type of setting is especially welcomed on those really warm summer days!

10- All hail simplicity!

While some are lovers of all things busy, others would rather create a lounge area that’s simple like the one shown above. Albeit very few decorative items are featured around the area, the contrast between the black mulch and the stones is pretty interesting, visually speaking. Proof that sometimes it doesn’t take much to create the ideal outdoor setting!
