Depending upon where you live, you may only be able to enjoy your patio during certain times of the year. Patios deserve more than the occasional barbecue or party. When warm weather finally arrives, use your patio as an extension of your home. If these Mediterranean patios could speak, take their advice. Provide a choice of sun-filled and shaded seating and make the most of your outside world.
1- Mountain Views
What a place to relax. The oversize terra cotta planters match the terra cotta tiled patio floor and both pair beautifully with the wood furniture. The patio also manages to offer space for those who love the sun and shaded spots for those who don’t.
2- Gorgeous Simplicity
What more could you want from this patio? The quaint, teak settee set against the stone wall offers the perfect spot to sit and watch the boats on the nearby ocean.
3- Sophistication in the French Riviera
Anyone who thought that wicker patio furniture couldn’t be sophisticated, has never seen this villa’s patio. The villa, located in the French Riviera, offers chic outdoor seating ideal for day activities with the kids and evening parties with the adults.
4- Fetching Flagstone
The homeowners have mastered outdoor decorating. The muted gray tones of the flagstone flooring beautifully complements the weathered gray wood floor and the trees offer just enough privacy and shade. The metal table may just be the perfect spot to enjoy an iced tea on a hot summer day.
