This opulent patio space from designer Thomas Oppelt has arching entrances lined with bricks, exposed wood beams and outdoor brick fireplace. An ornate candle-holder forms a visual focal point on the fireplace mantel, and a seating area is highlighted by ornate light fixtures, comfortable outdoor chairs, ottoman and glass side table.

Modern Neutral Patio with Bold Black and White Accents
Bold black and white furniture creates bold contrast against the polished, neutral patio. A black, slatted arbor complements the striking furniture for a streamlined look that is hallmark of modern design.

Relaxing Balcony Featuring Brown Wicker Lounge Chairs and Open Outdoor Shower
A half wall creates some privacy for the outdoor shower while still leaving it open to the gorgeous surrounding bay view. Wicker lounge chairs overlook the water for a cozy spot to relax and take in the view.
A Knotted Melati Hanging Chair from Anthropologie creates a cozy sitting nook on this patio. A matching Fermob bar cart provides a convenient spot to store beach towels, including these by Marimekko, or beverages and snacks to guarantee fun in the sun.
Beautiful neutral pavers create a welcoming patio that overlooks stunning Arizona views. Blue tile is used around the pool area for a brilliant pop of color, and southwestern-inspired tiles border the patio. Desert landscaping brings life to the space.
An exquisite rooftop provides 360-degree views of the lavish Montecito, Calif., property. The climate allows the rooftop to be enjoyed year round, while the expansive space provides the perfect setting for events.
Modular-style furnishings are made more traditional when crafted of wicker-like material. The gorgeous sea-blue furniture cushions and matching stemware is a delightful touch, while the ottoman serves double duty as a table with the addition of the simple silver tray.
Covered Patio With Vaulted Wood Ceiling and Fireplace
A vaulted wood ceiling and rough-hewn mantel add a distinctly rustic flair to this covered patio. The neutral patio has a unique style thanks to a mix of rustic and industrial components, including the metal-and-wood dining table.
This contemporary home with Tuscan influences is made for both indoor and outdoor living. A covered patio steps down to a second patio, both with views of the bi-level infinity pool. Blue mosaic tile on the pool provides a pop of color.
This coastal-inspired pool and patio area features neutral Terrazzo tiles and a blue stucco exterior. Numerous sitting areas provide comfortable options for relaxing by the pool, while a nearby kitchen with a stainless steel grill and range hood allow the convenience of outdoor entertaining.

Pergola Covered Dining Patio With Chandelier and String Lights
There’s nothing like a chandelier to create an elegant dining atmosphere. But wiring for an outdoor fixture can be complicated, and wet-rated styles are somewhat limited. One solution is to hang a candle chandelier from the beams of a pergola or covered patio, as designer Howard Roberts did here. Use battery-operated LED “candles” for easy operation. Add string lights radiating from the chandelier’s mounting to create a magical canopy of light above diners' heads.
