Nothing beats unwinding outdoors during the summertime. The warm sunshine, blue skies and fresh air offer an invitation for ultimate relaxation.

The right design elements can make any exterior space feel effortlessly peaceful. Here are a few inspired ideas for creating a vacation-worthy summer porch:
Serene Porch Styling Tips
A luxurious and laid back patio space is ideal for all-day BBQs and late night celebrations. Modern and inviting, this backyard space is a winner all year long. Glitzy extras like a fireplace and ceiling fan keep this space comfortable for guests no matter what the temperature. Adding even more drama, overhead lighting and wall sconces illuminate this cozy and contemporary patio.
A traditional back porch is welcoming with wicker furnishings and tons of Southern-style décor. While this is a small area to entertain, there is still plenty of room for guests to relax and converse with a cold glass of lemonade or iced tea. Hanging curtains offer the option to create more privacy and shield guests from any weather elements or critters.
A fantasy tropical patio is bright and whimsical. From a large porch swing with rainbow colored pillows to string lights and palm plants, this patio is perfect for those with water views. A graphic lime colored rug adds charm, while wicker tables offer a spot for guests to stockpile cocktails and board games.
A chic porch space can be both a compromise between indoor and outdoor elements. A wicker dining table offers a spot for guests to chitchat over lunch and a swing chair is a sweet spot for mid-day naps or a quick evening snooze. Ceiling fans as well as curtains keep this space cool and breezy, while decorative extras like wall pendant sconces and a wicker accent table give this porch coastal vibes.
A fusion of Southwestern and modern, this inspired outdoor space is filled with color and brightness. A large patio umbrella with string lights makes terracotta tile flooring glow in the twilight. Plus, guests can lounge for hours swapping stories and chatting on wicker love-seats with long lasting light. For the final exclamation point, a large fire pit sets the stage for a friendly and warm patio atmosphere.
