Mediterranean Backyard With Cozy Fire Pit
A teak swing and bench are topped with deep navy cushions, creating a comfortable living space that surrounds a fire pit. Hedges surround the patio area and lead out to an Old World-inspired tiered fountain.
White columns pair with rustic wood beams for a Mediterranean-inspired pergola, while an Old World chandelier and cozy fire pit illuminates the space in the evenings. Teak furniture features comfortable navy cushions with white piping to reflect the overall style of the backyard.
Just before the brick patio gives way to a grassy lawn, the owners will find a cozy sitting area complete with a small fire pit. Blue-and-white striped pillows enliven the space and make it extra comfortable in the evening.
This rustic patio area features gray paver stones and a large stone fire pit surrounded by brown rattan chairs with green cushions. Large boulder stones trim the perimeter of the patio, while a black chain link fence contains the dog run located just behind the space.
Designers created distinct spaces within this large backyard to maximize the homeowners' enjoyment of their lovely lakefront setting. Here, a pergola shades a dining and sitting area near the house. Large pavers lead across the lawn to a fire pit.
Mediterranean Villa Includes Fire Pit Spot in Backyard
To the right of the swimming pool, a few wooden benches allow the owners and their guests to take a seat around the fire pit. Because the spot is laid with gravel instead of flagstone, it feels like both a natural part of the backyard and a "room" of its own.
Mediterranean Backyard with Swimming Pool and Fire Pit
Depending on where you live, most outdoor spaces aren't complete without a fire. Add a fireplace or fire pit to extend the seasonality of your outdoor room. Fire and water elements can even be combined; think of the beautiful reflection of flames on still water.
Custom bench seating surrounds this welcoming fire pit, creating a great space for conversation any time of year. The fire pit and benches are lit from below, drawing the eye to the space and increasing its warm, cozy vibe. Well-placed stones create a sculptural focal point in the backyard beyond.
