34. Brick House

Is red your favorite color? It’s a shade that’s been known to inspire hunger, so don’t be surprised that this area is placed next to the kitchen. You’ll have guests coming in and out to grab a snack while they enjoy the roaring flames by this outdoor fireplace. The green cushions also pull colors from the kitchen to make the two rooms feel like one cohesive unit. The simplistic inlaid lighting stays out of the way of the angled ceiling fans that will keep you cool and keep your fire stoked when it starts to run out of fuel.

35. Earthy Pergola

Outdoor elements that are practical such as raw stone and concrete may seem harsh, but you can break that up with some soft cushions and chairs. The vibrant colors of gold and purple also divide the monotony of the stone. Paired with white chairs and other outdoor decor makes the entire space calm and inviting. Its stark and modern feel allows for much customization when it comes to decor; you could choose to keep it simple, or you could go with more eclectic choices to make the area stand out even more.

36. Neutral Patio With Growing Branches

If you’re not into bright colors, you can still keep your outdoor space interesting by going with alternating white and neutral colors. It’s a manageable look to pull off without being too distracting. You and your guests will enjoy relaxing in this beautiful outdoor area. The climbing vines seem to “support” the pergola overhead, creating a natural look that’s akin to a magical garden. The hedge behind the couch acts a natural wall to separate the walk from the rest of the area and can dampen any conversation that may travel too far.

37. Exposed Beams

With how simple this white and blue theme is, it doesn’t hurt to have a little of the structure showing. The exposed beams overhead give this area a rustic feel, and the dark tones of the would bring out the blue in the rug even more. Incorporate a little contrast by choosing a rug with a fanciful pattern to dress up your outdoor living room. The floor lanterns will make this area look even cozier when the sun goes down, especially when paired with the overhead bronze-ish lanterns. All that is left is for you to light some candles in this sophisticated looking area.

38. Garden Party Getaway

Throw a tea party with your friends with this lovely but straightforward decor; it definitely pulls beautiful colors from nature. A lovely bouquet with rosy pink hues welcomes whimsical scents to the table. The graceful shade of green used on the exterior of the home also pairs well with the bright reds and yellows to serve as a muted backdrop for this decor so that none of it feels too loud. Wrap-around branches running up the pillars make the outdoor area appear even more enchanting.

39. So Bo-Ho

Faded patterns can create subtle beauty, especially in a simple white area. The natural look of the chairs mimics the wicker light covering overhead to pull everything together. Plant a few palms to really give this outdoor living area a tropical feel, like a beach away from home. Add some patterned cushions to break up the monotony and don’t be afraid to go with contrasting colors you wouldn’t usually put together. That will bring out the “bohemian” character even more.

40. Tropical Escape

Bright and bold could be the way to go. Put those neutral colors aside and just go all-out red! The tropical feel of this area will transport you to another world that you may never want to leave. The addition of tropical flowers and other bright cushions quickly transforms your patio into a great place to have a conversation with a martini in your hand. Some much-needed shade isn’t a bad idea either, which you can accomplish with tall standing umbrellas or a retractable awning that won’t get in the way.
