This perforated metal woven wall is spectacular. Note how the entire space plays with horizontal lines, and how the lighting enhances the space.
Kapow! This long, L-shaped orange planter wall defines the patio and gives it all kinds of personality. It also grabs the eye, so that you forget you are in what otherwise could be a boring airshaft-like space.
I stumbled upon this lake house recently and I'm completely obsessed with it. This patio is a great example of great full site planning, where the house and its surroundings flow into each other seamlessly.
Outdoor fireplaces are a huge trend in patio design right now. How great would it be to grab some marshmellows and sticks and have s'mores after dining al fresco here?
Someone posted this patio to The Buzz and I'm grateful. It's a secret garden that's perfect for relaxing and socializing outdoors.
I'm a HUGE sucker for an outdoor shower, and this small patio creates the perfect connection between the house and the shower. One could even warm up a bit by the fire on the way back into the house after rinsing off.
Don't you get the feeling whoever lives here spends equal time indoors and out? The patios here provide spots for just about every activity imaginable!
