Situated on the shore of newfound lake in central new hampshire, this outdoor retreat looks west over the spring fed waters toward the mountains beyond. Our design intent was to provide the homeowners with a viewing perspective that captured the feel of lakefront living. The fire pit terrace, situated on a plane aligned with the home’s main floor, uses native granite from a nearby quarry to create a refined campfire retreat. This carefully calculated elevation makes the upper plateau appear to jut out into the lake. A quick walk down a grass path with granite lawn treads brings us to a private beach for lounging and water access. Transitioning from refined to rustic successfully makes the landscape feel cohesive and inviting.

Casual, breezy and relaxed, beach-themed patios offer the ideal spot to soak up the sun. Whether you actually live by the shore or not, incorporating elements of coastal design into your backyard can make for a truly inviting space. From navy blue to turquoise, wicker chairs to striped cushions, there are a number of directions you can take with this look. Read on for some of our favorite coastal patio ideas and photos to inspire you.


1. Crisp White Pergola

Ensure your patio is comfortable enough for lounging the day away with a pergola. These structures provide welcome shade, and a crisp white version will give the space a bright and refreshing vibe.

2. Blue and Gray Accents

It goes without saying that blue decor is a must for any beach-style space. But using plenty of light grays also looks good, particularly if you’re going for a salty, windswept sort of look.

3. Bohemian Flair

Have some fun with your beach patio decor by adding in bohemian accents. Macrame hanging planters, big woven pendant lights and hanging egg chairs would all add some character to the space.

4. Stripes Galore

Now is your chance to be a little bit preppy! Whether you opt for a striped rug or simply some throw cushions, stripes in red, white, blue, black or gray evoke classic beach style.

5. Curtains and Drapes

Add a luxurious touch to your beach patio by draping a white canvas cover over the top of your pergola, or adding Roman shades or curtains around the sides.

6. Driftwood Furniture

Go for a Northern California vibe with coastal patio furniture in a gray driftwood-like finish. Plush cushions in white, navy blue or gray would complete the look.

7. Hammock Lounging

What says beach style better than a hammock? Whether you opt for a classic woven design or a striped fabric version, your new hammock is sure to become the most coveted spot on the patio.

8. Classic Wicker

Adding a wicker coastal patio dining set to your yard will make for effortless entertaining. And while wicker can look traditional, you can also find relaxed designs that are more modern or contemporary in style.

9. Shiplap Panels

While shiplap has become particularly trendy these days, on a beach-themed patio, it really works. If you’ve got a gazebo, use it on the ceiling or sides.

10. Bar and Barbecue

Keep things light and casual with a built-in barbecue and simple bar seating. Just imagine enjoying tiki drinks and some grilled pineapple this summer — right on your own patio!

11. Poolside Gazebo

If you’ve got a pool, it’s absolutely essential that you have some good poolside seating. A gazebo offers a fully covered spot to set up some chaise lounge chairs or an outdoor sofa. Sipping an iced tea while you dip into a magazine will be so much more enjoyable.

12. Choose a Hardscape

Coastal patio decor can work with a variety of hardscapes, like concrete, stone or even brick. If you do opt for a brick patio, gray, distressed or whitewashed versions are best.
