Modern Patios We Envy

Dani Caruso
By Dani Caruso

A carefully decorated patio can serve as an additional room that gives you an excuse to never leave home. The space outside is just as much yours that’s inside, so take this opportunity to leave your mark on every square foot. Contemporary decor such as area rugs, string lights, and coffee tables join forces with functional pieces like fire pits and grilling stations to create a comfy alfresco hangout. To illustrate what we mean, we found a handful of patios from bloggers who nailed the modern exterior look through a variety of styles.
