Eclectic, Lush Patio with Tapestry Tablecloth, String Lights and Chiminea
Instead of buying new furniture, rehab an old or damaged table with no elbow grease. Just cover it with a zesty tablecloth, like the Mexican tapestry that Wake + Loom Design selected for this eclectic, lush patio.
Eclectic Patio with Yellow Chairs, Multi-Colored Fabric Pouf Ottoman and Silver Garden Stool
Floor poufs are a low-price way to add seating without investing in larger pieces of furniture, such as a sofa or chaise, say Gabriela Eisenhart and Holly Conlan with Wake + Loom Design. While you can find outdoor poufs for less than $50, you also can make your own fabric pouf ottoman in a pattern and palette that you prefer. Also, a garden stool is a versatile item that can serve as extra seating or a side table.
Fun details bring some personality and vibrancy to the outdoor space. A colorful pom pom garland is simply strung across a vintage easel and paired with a large succulent plant. On chilly nights you can hang cozy blankets on the rungs of the easel to switch up the look even more.
To the left of the chairs, a Steve Chase deco-inspired console table with bold lines offers a cool visual contrast to the hillside. Meanwhile, palm fronds painted gold and a vintage sculpture of a woman nod to the art studio downstairs.
Use plants of all sizes as decor. Pick up inexpensive baskets at the thrift store and simply drop some small plants and cacti in the baskets. You can then put the baskets all around your space to bring some lushness and life to your deck.
A two-tone glass orb lights up the dining space of this colorful and eclectic courtyard. Seating options range from modern metal to wicker, and colorful textiles scattered throughout the space bring a casual vibe. Mesh screening surrounds the courtyard, filtering light and providing privacy.
Small Outdoor Space with Red Adirondack Chairs, Fire Pit and Built-in Bar
Take a corner of your patio and put it to use as an entertaining space. A bar is built in under the kitchen window in this outdoor space with a fire pit by DesignFix, a California interior design company. The bar, which has a red acrylic top, is supported by decorative wood roofing brackets. Rope lighting underneath makes the bar look cool at night, says designer Amanda Giles.
Colorful Eclectic Courtyard With Copper Water Feature
A water feature is the focal point at the center of this fun and eclectic backyard hangout. A wood structure lined with metal screening encloses spaces to dine, relax and otherwise entertain. Vessels scattered throughout the courtyard hold plantings of various sizes and shapes, bringing life to the space.
Eclectic Porch Sitting Area With White Furniture & Buddha Statue
A white Buddha statue, among other Asian accents used throughout the space, introduces a Zen mood to this porch sitting area. Beautiful white furniture and sheer white curtains look even brighter against the natural background and neutral floor. Throw pillows add pops of accent color in red, purple and pink, while the pair of metallic tables adds a touch of glam to the design.
