The large floor-to-ceiling windows and glass door provide an expansive feel from this elegant rooftop apartment onto the modern patio. Softly spotlit trees in planters next to the doors and wood decking add natural texture. Additional lighting over the door spotlights the area while adding to safety and security.
Here is a unique take on modern patio design. Although this poolside space appears small, the use of individual umbrellas over the deck chairs, rather than a large overhanging canopy or pergola, provides comfortable shade and a modern architectural touch. White provides a clean, summery color.
A focal point is an area that draws the eye, creating an instant 'look.' In this photo, the water element against the gently arched wall provides a simple focal point. Classic patio chairs make this modern patio comfortable and simple.
