A large fireplace provides an inviting focal point for this San Diego patio byStrandemo Home. The fireplace and light colors extend the Mediterranean style of the home’s architecture, while the modern furnishings update it. Large olive trees add soft natural texture to the patio.
Located on axis with the pool and house, this covered patio is an inviting oasis during Houston’s intense summers. The pros at Thompson Custom Homes created an inviting space that provides much-needed shade and breezes, thanks to the fans mounted inconspicuously in the corners of the ceiling.
Three sides of this Houston midcentury modern home surround this courtyard. And the pergola that provides shade has a stripped-down, rectilinear architecture that plays off the slatted feature walls indoors. Jamie Bush & Co. outfitted the patio with classic midcentury modern planters and new modern outdoor furniture that suits the 1963 home.
The designers at Lifescape Colorado have transformed this backyard into a natural extension of a midcentury modern home. There’s space to have a cocktail while someone grills, then eat alfresco and retire to the lounge to warm up by the fire pit. Clean lines and pops of bright colors carry the modern spirit throughout the patio.
The way the pros at Outdoor Dreams placed this outdoor fireplace is worth studying. It serves as a stone-covered focal point with a beautiful backdrop of lawn, meadow and woods beyond it. This patio is part of a larger new landscape design that includes an adjacent pergola-covered patio and pool.
