Spending a gorgeous day under the sun or stars while enjoying the comforts of home is the ultimate luxury, and these 20 beautiful outdoor rooms allow you to do exactly that. From cooking up a feast to relaxing with friends, these exterior rooms expand your living area while allowing you to breathe in a little more of that fresh summer air.
Spruce up your outdoor space with patterned throw pillows, a perfectly organized coffee table and a floral arrangement that looks like it was plucked straight from the property.
If there’s one thing this space doesn’t skimp on, it’s accessories. The designers recommend opting for a matching set when you’re decorating an outdoor space, and looking for stylish additions, like an area rug, lanterns, pillows, and trays.
Just like most indoor spaces, lighting can make a world of difference outside, too. Hang some string lights to get more use out of your deck.
Adding a bit of brights to an otherwise colorless space is a great way to make your outdoor area more inviting. Even an uncovered patio can be brightened up with a sleek light fixture.

This expansive backyard retreat is a great space to entertain, elevated only by the color coordination of its stylish decor.

This lounge area proves that decorating is essential even in the outdoors. Look for weatherproof accent pieces that are as stylish as they are functional.

This city escape has everything you could ever need to spend your entire summer outside: a kitchen to cook all your meals, a sleek dining area to eat them, and a comfortable sofa set to lounge on in between.

Tiles can do just as much for an outdoor entertaining area as they can for an indoor one. Look for a style that pulls inspiration from nature — think a bold blue or gorgeous green pattern like the ones on stylist Emily Henderson’s patio.
With the right accessories, an outdoor dining area can be just as stylish as the one inside your home. The designer spruced up this space with a natural runner and rustic light fixture.
