An outdoor sitting area outside a New Orleans townhouse has color and personality thanks to this gray patio furniture set. The contemporary style serves as a modern-day counterpoint to the historic home.
The homeowners, guests and pets can relax on outdoor furniture accented by throw pillows within the shady seclusion of a tall, wood privacy fence. The homeowner had a vision for transforming the space, which was already partially enclosed by a fence and concrete wall, into an outdoor courtyard for entertaining on warm summer evenings.
The design of this modern patio is spare but striking with black and white furniture jazzed up by bright blue and green pillows. On the back wall, a fun art installation scatters shapes and letters with wind-blown abandon.
Clean, horizontal lines and inviting modern furniture characterize this zen patio and garden space. A lighted accent wall draws attention to the water feature, which is nestled into a rock garden with neat rows of succulents. Colorful cushions and pillows brighten the space and give the seating and dining areas a cheerful vibe.
Artisan end tables made from reclaimed wood pieces can also be used as organic décor, a plant stand or stool. A large black and white architectural photograph from the Sixties adds modern personality behind the sofa. The den’s windows offer a look at the outdoor patio with pergola.
