We heart outdoors! And after taking a look at the photos our readers and Patio Style Challenge participants posted on Instagram using the #HeartOutdoors hashtag, clearly they do, too.

You may even find a few patio decorating ideas that will make your outdoor space more enjoyable. All it takes is a few quick updates and a little bit of  decor inspiration.
