“Natural beauty” is a well-known term for a reason: nature is full of beautiful things to look at. Whether you’re looking at a neighbor’s potted plants from your city apartment’s terrace, or a sprawling expanse of trees from the patio of your remote cabin, something about getting outside and taking in the wonders of nature just feels good. Here are a few downright stunning patios, terraces, verandas, or whatever you want to call them, to delight your eyes and inspire you to create your ideal outdoor space.

This outdoor space has all the comforts of a living room, with the added bonuses of fresh air and sunshine. The rug, frames on the wall, and space for dishware and knickknacks all help to create this fabulous indoor/outdoor vibe.

We love this home’s pared-down, modern landscape design with plenty of paths, simple shrubs, and multiple places to lounge. The super-cool curved lawn chairs are reflective of the house’s design, and who wouldn’t want to relax in that swinging chair with a book?

Small apartment decks and sunrooms that are stuck being used for storage make us sad. Even if you’re short on square footage, you can create an area to enjoy nature with a small patio table and chairs, potted plants, and – in this case – pinecones.

This sleek, modern pool and patio area begs for a glamorous party. Bright pops of color provide an energetic vibe and contrast the predominantly start white space. With plenty of lounge chairs and a large dining table, it would be a pleasure to spend the entire day outdoors here.

With an infinity pool, outdoor kitchen, nap-perfect outdoor furniture, and breathtaking views – not to mention the darling dog – we don’t even know why there’s an indoor portion of this Los Cabos home.
