Summer is still going strong, and for many, the heat will continue for the next month or two. Once the cool temperatures do arrive, it will be hard to resist the appeal of sitting on the poolside deck or terrace with a cocktail in hand. Make sure your outdoors look as good as the indoors. Searching for ideas? Today we present some amazing images that will stir the design imagination.
Don’t have a pool? Don’t worry! You can still spruce up the exterior of your home. Add some outdoor seating, liven up your landscaping and entertain in your backyard haven. Let the poolside decks and terraces below be a source of inspiration!
We begin by featuring some modern decks and patios, like the vibrant space below. In fact, this deck has two undeniable advantages: privacy and color. The tall walls create a cozy feel without being claustrophobic. Bright seating in the form of cushions and poufs makes this outdoor area stand out. [from Linea Italia via Trendir]
Below we see a Cypress villa that is covered yet open thanks to a slatted ceiling. Modern seating with pops of orange and violet sets the vivid yet tranquil tone. [from Koutsoftides Architects via Unique Home Interior]
The next featured home is hardly modern, yet the pool area is contemporary. Linear motifs in pool design, hedge and seating help contribute to the updated vibe. Manicured plants complete the crisp, uncluttered feel. [from Harold Leidner Landscape Architects]
