Above, warm wood tones and a pergola add an intimate feel to the rooftop patio of a Brooklyn brownstone.

A patio is a wonderful feature to have, giving you space to create an outdoor dining area or just a spot for lounge chairs. If you are looking to upgrade your current patio furniture set (or want a few new accessories) just in time for summer, we have just the inspiration you need. From boho-chic conversation nooks to gracious dining areas, these patio décor ideas will help you update your space with style to spare:

Mid-Century Mix

Mesh mid-century chairs add unexpected glamour to this romantic brick patio from Lonny. Though the space is small, the sheer metal preserves sight lines, making it look a little roomier.

Twice the Style

This larger patio space designed by Molly Wood Garden Design is composed of two “rooms”. There’s the conversation grouping in front of the outdoor fireplace, and then an informal dining space in the corner.

Graphic Modern

This tiny patio space by Dulcet Creative has a bold presence thanks to the incredible grey-and-white patterned tiles. The furniture is kept to the basics: A chair by the outdoor fireplace, a bench in a sunny spot, and an ottoman that can also be called into use as a table.

Vineyard Vibes

Sicilian tiles add even more color to the lush patio of Dedar fabric founders Nicola & Elda Fabrizio, as featured in Veranda. The dark wood of the folding chairs grounds the light and airy look.

Green and Serene

Soft green cushions and pillows create a restful feel in this South Carolina patio. The color also works harmoniously with the ivy panels which help to soften the look of the brick walls that enclose the backyard.
