There is nothing like summer nights out on your back patio, wouldn’t you agree? There’s just something about a warm night, eating something delicious with your family and friends that makes us so happy! And of course, with all the backyard soirees you’re going to throw, a well decorated patio is a must. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with some must-haves to style the perfect patio.

Any inviting outdoor living space requires that oh-so comfortable couch to kick your feet up on after a long day of work. When you’re thinking about what color to pick, we suggest always going neutral. This option from West Elm is perfect for any outdoor space. Pick from a weathered grey color or a café beige. You really can’t go wrong.

There is no doubt that you have to have some sort of table to set down your coffee mug as you enjoy your morning brew. Always go with something durable and stable.

This is the perfect height for the couch chosen above.

Or… If you want a little more open space, go with an end table like this one to save on space, and cost!

Now… if you want to get really fancy, you can create an outdoor dining space with a table that comfortably fits eight chairs, and a super fun + flirty dining set that will be sure to leave your dinner guests with a lasting impression.

Start with this durable and beautiful wood table with matching benches. With bench seating you can squeeze in a few party crashers at your next dinner party.

Once you’ve got your anchor pieces, it is time to bring on the cute and cozy! Layer these beautiful blue pillows from Crate and Barrel with a fun print like this option we chose from West Elm. It’s always great to mix a pattern with a solid to create the best combination.

Add on this vibrant blue umbrella to block that hot daytime sun or let it down to enjoy the gorgeous starry night.

Last, but not least, it’s time to set the table. We suggest always using white dinner plates. They look sleek and clean and you can always pair them. Here’s a great option that won’t break the budget! Then we will add in some fun napkins and glasses to complete the perfect table setting. This clear glass is great with an added extra design element for a fun flare.

With your outdoor space decorated, it’s time to invite your friends over and enjoy! Make sure to check out West Elm and Crate and Barrel blogs for lots more design ideas to complete your summer outdoor look!
