Texture does the main job of filling this patio with visual appeal...that and the incredible view! The patio's brick trim is contrasted by large pavers and grass. Wicker dining chairs are shaded by a white pergola. And a sculptural topiary stands at attention nearby.
Plush armchairs beg to be cozied up in with a good book and an iced tea. To make an outdoor space especially inviting, use elements more often found indoors, like comfortable furniture, pillows and rugs.
In between two houses, landscape designers laid a brick patio with bricks in different shades. Suddenly, the narrow space becomes inviting and so usable, especially with the addition of outdoor tables.
Brick patios surround the inviting swimming pool and stretch out to the outdoor kitchen, comfortable seating areas and dining spots. The covered pavilion and pergola provide much-needed shade on a hot day.
