During the summer months, an outdoor patio is one of—if not the most—important living spaces. It’s an area for entertaining, enjoying the company of friends and loved ones, and curling up with a good book to unwind at the end of a long day. Because of that, it should be decorated and designed with just as thoughtful of an approach as the rest of your home.
Outdoor patio decor has come quite a long way, and with an abundance of options, it’s easy to make the space feel like an extension of your home. Outdoor sofas and chairs help construct the perfect living space, while smaller decor items like outdoor rugs, throw pillows, and lanterns give it warmth and charm. This collection of outdoor patio decor ideas will help you create the backyard oasis you’ve been dreaming of.
