White, Contemporary Patio with Poolside Dining Table
A sleek covered patio features clean lines that are echoed in the geometric lines of the pool and the pavers interspersed with grass. The long dining table offers plenty of space for entertaining guests al fresco, while a petite pool house extends this home's indoor-outdoor connection.
Beyond the covered patio, a wall completely opens, bridging the gap between indoors and out at this contemporary California hacienda. Walls throughout are white and furnishings are neutral, creating an overall effect that is crisp, clean and modern. Terraces and patios allow maximum enjoyment of the entertainment-ready backyard.
A clean, modern fire pit is flanked by a built-in bench topped with custom cushions that blend into the calm, neutral color palette. A pair of sculptural boulders become art when placed before a dark garden wall, which edges an elevated pool.
The most effective way to use any outdoor area maximally is with perimeter seating. Here, a modular sectional sofa is configured to conform to a corner of this welcoming courtyard, putting every square inch of the area to use. For optional flexibility, consider sectional sofas without arms since the armless modules can also be added to elongate a straight-lined sofa.
A series of covered outdoor living spaces overlook an infinity pool and hot tub in the backyard of this Austin home. Throughout the house, design distinction is achieved with the contrast of light stone finishes and dark-stained wood.
Easy living is made even easier on this gorgeous Mediterranean patio. A long rustic trestle table provides ample room for guests, and the patterned tiles underfoot mean the floor is just as compelling as the surroundings.
The color palette and fabric patterns of the patio coordinate with the interior spaces of the home. A clean, simple concrete fire pit bowl sits in the center of comfortable outdoor furniture, perfect for summer nights. The fire pit can be easily moved to the side when room for a dance floor is needed. Lots of potted plants in overscaled ceramic containers surround the area, helping to further define the space.
Simply yet completely stunning! This porch doesn't need a lot going on to make it fabulous. The simple white chairs paired with the soft candle light and concrete planters gives this space just want it needs to enjoy the picturesque skyline view.
Patio and Spa: Waterfront Mansion Featured in Kourtney and Kim Take Miami
Fabulous indoor/outdoor terraces overlook the Biscayne Bay from this Mediterranean-style mansion in Miami. Known as Palazzo di Mare, the home was rented by socialite sisters Kourtney and Kim Kardashian while they filmed their E! reality series, Kourtney and Kim Take Miami.
White railing works well with any deck board and complements brick, shingles, stucco, or vinyl and fiber-cement siding. It’s a great look for stairs and porches, too. Fiberon Symmetry Railing features a classic profile in a sturdy, low-maintenance composite that never needs paint or stain.
