Summer Patio Decorating Ideas
We have a spot at the end of our very long driveway that I’d like to transform into a patio. I’ve got some ideas whirling around in my head to make the space livable and pretty. If you’re also looking for summer patio decorating ideas, consider these inspirational photos.
Add color and comfort. This beautiful patio from Maison de Pax includes a great mix of comfy textiles like throws and pillows, which also lend a touch of color.
Jennifer Rizzo tucked her summer patio into a lush corner of her yard. I’m lovin’ all the hostas in her backyard!
Sometimes simple is all you need. Cottage style lawn chairs cuddle a vintage table, all set on a simple pea gravel patio.
Not a fan of bright colors? Zevy Joy’s summer patio looks elegant dressed in beautiful neutrals. I love how she incorporated both a dining area and living space on her patio.
Include a fire pit on your patio. Shine Your Light created a pretty fire pit in the center of her gravel patio. And she shares instructions for installing the patio.
Add a canopy to your summer patio. I love the simplicity of this one – although I’m not so sure the white canvas would stay clean for long. But it sure looks pretty.

This small patio ties the flagstone path with the patio by adding some of the stones on the perimeter of the space. Planted containers add a touch of softness.
A cozy patio set creates an intimate spot for al fresco dining. No need to have elaborate outdoor furniture if you have a small space.

A fire element becomes a must if you plan to use your patio at night. We have a fire pit in our yard, and since it’s near the end of the driveway where I’d like to create a patio – I think we can tie the two spaces together.

This is my favorite patio – probably because of the view just beyond. I also like the lanterns and blankets. Perfect for cooler evenings!

What elements have you added to your summer patio to increase your outdoor enjoyment?
Lots of pretty ideas for dressing up the outdoor areas. The patio with the view is gorgeous. We need to take our fire pit apart and rework it.
