Inspired: Patio Decorating Ideas

No matter the size of your space, you can set up a great outdoor lounging or entertaining area with just a few accents. Here are a few patio decorating ideas to inspire you to get outside!

Adirondack Chairs

If you’re sprucing up a smaller space, Adirondack chairs are a great solution for a relaxed and laid back vibe. Where space is limited, grab a couple of these loungers and add a small table for a drink, a snack and a good book. Mandy Pellegrin, of Fabric Paper Glue, shows us how in this small urban setting.

Custom Chair and Table Covers

Customizing your store-bought patio furniture with chair covers and table runners serves two purposes. It’s a great way to add your own flair to the space, plus covers protect your furniture from the elements. There’s nothing like dining al fresco on a beautifully set and styled table, as Grace Miller of A Storied Style shows us here.

Cover Concrete with Wood Decking

A cold concrete slab probably doesn’t have that warm, welcoming feel that you’re trying to accomplish in your outdoor space. Why not build a raised deck structure to define the area like Kelly of View Along The Way did here. This idea applies to any space, not just cold concrete. Family and friends will be clamoring to spend an evening on your freshly laid deck!

Bright Colors for Small Spaces

Lastly, bright colors are a sure-fire way to infuse life and energy into any space, no matter the size. Pick a color scheme to frame your decorating plans around, and take cues from your outdoor space to inspire a colorful and lively palette, the way Jewel Hazleton of Eat.Drink.Shop.Love did. Looking for more color? Try these looks! A pink, yellow and orange plan that pops from Cassie of Hi Sugarplum! and a soothing blue, black and white collection from Brittany of brittanyMakes.
