Room of the Week: Prize-Worthy Pergola
Peep our picks to create a pretty, pergola-covered patio you'll enjoy year-round.
We hate to be the ones to tell you, but from one friend to another: it’s high time that you elevate your outdoor living space. Like, yesterday. Follow the lead of interior designer extraordinaire, Katharine Webster, and perk up your patio with a dupe of her pergola design. Spend summer evenings beneath a classic, retractable pergola and bask in the glow of waterproof LED string lights galore. Sink into a sleek, wood frame all-weather sofa, layered with plush pillows in bright, seasonal hues. Snag a few ceramic stools and use them as makeshift end tables for craft beers and cocktails — and, yes, bonus points will be awarded if your garden stools add as much color and texture as the jaw-dropping one featured here. Our top takeaway? Make the cool, concrete fire pit your one must-buy from this space. Ignite the fire now to keep those pests and bugs at bay and, as the temps taper off, you'll have a prime spot to cozy-up and enjoy hot cider and s’mores with friends and family.
