When you live in Italy, it only makes sense to pair your breakfast with beautiful vistas. Visitors need only to open the sliding glass door, step onto the private patio and sip their espresso while yachts sail across the water.
There is a 40-foot drop from this home's main floor to the water below, so architects navigated the drop gracefully via several levels. Wide steps lead down from the back porch to this patio and pool. A lower patio offers more sitting areas.
A step outside the blue French doors leads to the front patio at this California beach home. White cushioned swivel chairs and a built-in corner bench surround the ground-level fire pit, and a large dining table with wire chairs creates an outdoor dining space. Plants border the yard, adding natural life and color.
Lighting gives this contemporary California patio an added element of drama. Limestone steps and seating feature hidden lighting for function and convenience. Meanwhile, blue-tinted lighting accents the hot tub and infinity-edge pool, echoing the beauty of the lake and sky beyond.
A combination of different stones gives this outdoor space a customized and visually interesting look. Stacked New England fieldstone is used throughout the backyard to create seating walls on the patio and retaining walls that terrace the yard. Antique cobblestone divides the bluestone patio to create a separate dining room and conversation area in front of the fireplace, and reclaimed granite is used to make the steps and pillars.
Step outside this Boston penthouse apartment and feast your eyes on the private patio area that parallels its indoor loveliness. Simply designed patio furniture in gray metal, with bright blue upholstered cushions, is a comfortable addition to the space. The designers of Haddad Hakansson used large stone tiles for the floor and added a light blue stone wall for privacy. The blue colors used throughout is an outstanding choice to blend with the glass windows and outside environment.
This large, two-story home is fronted by a variety of plants, including ground-cover providing shrubs, ornamental grass, and flowering plants; a round flagstone patio; and stone steps inset into a mulched area.
