This partially enclosed patio looks like another addition to the house itself! The natural lighting from the large curtained windows creates a cozy look enhanced by the blue paneled ceiling that resembles the color of a clear summer sky. With added d├ęcor and plush chairs, the look is nicely completed with greenery that brings a little bit of nature inside.


A true picnic feel embodies this patio that features a picnic table, wicker chairs and bench seating. Literally just off of the house, this space is a cozy retreat that allows for intimate gatherings with family and friends with the comfort of home. The potted ferns and trailing vine add extra color to this otherwise neutral color palette.

The hanging swing anchors the space with numerous plush pillows that reflect the colors of the brick. The refurbished vintage table and hanging white mantle are functional points of interest. Greenery from the plants beyond the gate to the bust on the green vase add color to the design.
