4 Patio Ideas Inspired by Indoor Spaces

Four key decorating tricks to rejuvenate your patio with the warmth and comfort normally only found indoors.


Curtains offer both aesthetic appeal and functionality to your outdoor space. They create intimacy and coziness by creating the atmosphere of being indoors, since curtains are traditionally for interior spaces.

Beyond lending a charming aesthetic to your outdoor space, curtains allow for shade on sunny days, shelter on windy days, and privacy during dinner parties or other social gatherings.


Bid farewell to unwelcoming metal sofas with loose cushions. If you have a covered outdoor space, opt for upholstered couches and chairs.

There is nothing more comfortable than a squishy, upholstered piece of furniture with fabric all over it. Choose something you might also have in your library or bedroom. Cover your furniture when dew or rain is expected, and bring indoors during the colder months if you live in a seasonal climate.


Bring your indoor candles and candlesticks out. Littering your yard with candles and lanterns adds romance to the space. It creates an indoor atmosphere, where you feel like you’re in a living room.

Invest in glass cylinders or hurricane glass shades to place around candles to protect their flames from the wind.


Just as you meticulously choose textiles for your indoor pillows and chairs, be selective about what you place outside. You can recreate the warmth and comfort that you usually only have indoors with textiles.
