Southwestern Tile Courtyard Patio With Barrel Tile Roof
The square shape of this courtyard patio is softened with the corner landscaping, planters and center tree cutout. The orange tile flooring blends well with the neutral walls and red-orange barrel tile roof. Decorative tiles line the door archway and tree base.
Metallic accents, glass railings and rock beds greet those who visit this modern home located in the Southern California community of Corona del Mar. Clean lines are found in the hardscape, windows and roofline. Illuminated trees gives the space an elegant feel.
After passing through the courtyard doors, you are welcomed by dual fountain features that frame the walkway and provide a tranquil feeling upon entry into this private space.
Finding the right glass waterline tile for fountain and spa was difficult since we wanted it to be complementary to the antique brick and terra cotta paving colors, but the Bamboo Blend (Weave Series from Walker Zanger) provide the right balance of color, while also providing enough of a highlight.
Enter into this gorgeous courtyard and be greeted by beautiful gardens on either side. The large Mediterranean style wall creates privacy while a white pergola can be used as a base for climbing plants.
Mid-century Modern Courtyard with Sliding Gate and Fire Pit
A yellow privacy fence serves as a vibrant gateway to a courtyard designed by architect Guy Ayers. He used half-inch clear plexiglass covered with multiple, thin layers of colored and textured plastic. It took several trial runs to create the perfect hue for the courtyard, which also features a fire pit.
Sharing the Green: Artificial Lawn in Ohio Apartment Complex

Color is key to creating a lively Spanish-inspired outdoor dining area. The yellow pergola, Talavera tile behind the grill, Saltillo patio tile and cobalt-blue seat cushions all work to enliven this festive alfresco space.
