If the summer heat had you beat, there’s no better time to head back outdoors than the shift in seasons accompanied by cooler temps. Trade in those vibrant summer shades for more harvest-inspired hues and ensure your patio décor enhances those cozy fireside gatherings. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite outdoor spaces decked in seasonal splendor that are sure to inspire you as you bring autumnal touches to your home—both inside and out!
Bring an added sense of welcome to your space with soft plaid blankets and comfortable throw pillows in warm hues of orange and red. A rustic brick fireplace makes a stunning focal point while surrounding trees offer plenty of shade.
A cozy fire, scented candles, miniature pumpkins, and orange plaid accents—what could be more fall? With autumn-inspired vignettes thoughtfully placed around the seating area, everyone’s view is guaranteed to be spectacular.
In lieu of bold accessories, turn to woven textures to bring visual interest to a neutral palette. No fireplace? No problem! The DIY coffee table plays double duty, emanating warmth to the surrounding gathering space.
Transitory seasons serve as the best time to test out new and creative schemes. Pink tasseled pillows impart traces of warmth at this alfresco table, while dusty blue napkins hint at the slight chill in the air.
Opt for striking contrast with the classic black-and-white combo, allowing the brilliant fall foliage to take the spotlight as the season progresses. Circled around the firepit, each chair sits ready to welcome guests with a pillow and blanket.
Let the garden serve as your muse for an alfresco gathering featuring hearty vegetation in deep green and violet hues. Add a chic touch to your setting by incorporating lush accessories, such as purple pillows and faux fur blankets.
Holding on to those relaxing days by the pool while you still can? This cabana celebrates the best of summer and fall with blue and yellow accents styled with a collection of white pumpkins and gourds.
