Fortunately enough, there are countless ideas on how to make this area inviting and cozy. We introduce you to ten brilliantly decorated designs, which you will surely fall for. Whether it is made of wood or stone, square or round arrangement, open or roofed, traditional or modern, it is something that can be enjoyed by everyone. Here we go!

Garden house reinterpreted

Normally a garden shed is only used to place the garden tools and other small things. But what if you say good-bye to two walls and use the rest of your house for cozy seating? Here, a wooden structure with roof and two side walls offers the ideal place for a seating area. Protected from wind and the harsh weather while still being in close contact with the garden.

Wow! This is pretty much the quintessence of cosiness. The rustic stone walls immerse everything in a traditional flair—thanks to the large opening, you can enjoy the view of the wonderful garden. On the extensive corner, the couch is filled with pillows where you can lie down and have wonderful dreams. Then in pleasant evenings, the room will be dipped in soft candle light, exuding the perfect ambience.

Fresh colors

Lightly lit with hanging lights and an airy garden space paired with colored seats and matching throw pillows for a fresh ambiance. Turquoise and yellow are the predominant tones that perfectly reflects the summer mood. A combination of benches and several Acapulco chairs offer comfortable seating and with outstretched sun sails to provide protection against weather conditions and make the entire seating area more hospitable while you are refreshingly surrounded with lush greens.

The classic pergola along the swimming pool provides that beach feel, with the wooden frame and white flowy curtains. The pebbled flooring, the wooden deck and the use of light fabric create that Ibiza feeling.

Mediterranean flair

Let us introduce you to these mediterranean garden along a renovated ruin. A rustic structure made of brick and stone provide the natural and quaint charm that also offers protection from the wind and the sun. It has a beaver tail roof which is frequently used in the southern regions of Europe. Terracotta pots and plants and an old bicycle are the ideal accessories for a filigree wood and metal garden set.

A playful twist is used for this unique pavilion. The color combinations of black, brown and gray as well as the linear design give it a timeless look.

You can also relax on the lounge along the deck surrounded by flowers.
