2. Put together a trio. Three key elements define the mood of this little rooftop space. First, the checkerboard floor has clear Victorian connotations; it’s a larger take on the classic front garden path that still exists in many houses of that era. Second, the delicate cast-iron furniture is a far cry from boxy, water-resistant rattan or colorful molded plastic. (If you were going for wood, consider it for antique-looking benches, rather than table and chair sets, for a period-sensitive effect.) Third, traditional-style brass outdoor lighting completes the mood. You may have three other elements in mind — perhaps Victorian-style French windows, a pretty antique-looking greenhouse and an interesting old urn you could turn into a water feature or planter. Keep everything else natural and, again, go for lots of dark leafy plants, rather than structural foliage, for an old-world feel.

Emphasizing a sightline from inside the house to outside works for small gardens and apartments as well and can help these spaces feel larger. For tight city terraces or windows that open to the walls of adjacent buildings, it’s even more important to match the line of sight closely with what you view from a particular window or doorway. Play with levels of potted plants and the scale of the plants and pots to create focal points where your eye falls.Browse outdoor pots and planters

3. French-style courtyard. Outdoor dining furniture, with the help of a few other elements, can be an opportunity to define the style of your garden or patio. For a romantic French-style terrace, for example, look for metal bistro chairs and antique outdoor tables to set the mood. Further the style with accents like traditional terra-cotta pots, trimmed boxwood globes, a stone fountain, metal lanterns and potted Mediterranean herbs.
