Turn to striped cushions and beautiful blooms: Try contrasting brickwork and classic wooden furniture with bold black and white striped accent pillows, for a touch of comfort. The funky vertical stripes can easily contrast against a dark wood bench, while greenery and gorgeous violets help to balance out the neutral tones. If you consider your patio a haven and escape from an otherwise hectic lifestyle, the fresh flowers and plants can contribute to a relaxing outdoor space.

Consider white lattice furniture for a dainty touch: For smaller patios which aren’t a suitable fit for large, bulky wooden furniture, a white lattice patio set can go a long way. Delicate latticework and ivory paint on slender metal chairs and a matching table can help you craft the patio of your dreams. Simply add contrasting pastel cushions and delicate ceramic dishware to create the perfect setting for your next garden party.

Think eclectic and mixed textures: If you can’t decide on a single décor theme, consider combining textures for the best results. Soft blue pillows pair effortlessly with rustic wooden benches and picnic tables, while potted plants add natural beauty. Bring warmth to your outdoor space with knit blankets and shaggy faux fur accents, and prepare to host guests on the patio all season long.
