Jacksonville, Florida

Lush tropical style turns patios in the Southeast into resort-level escapes. Teak seating (by Summer Classics), palm-leaf fabric, and a lattice coffee table create a breezy ambience, with a bit of beachy boho from a white rug by Annie Selke’s Dash & Albert.

Kansas City, Kansas

Classic good looks rule in outdoor hangouts of the Midwest, and this patio does tradition proud with its twin wicker chaises, striped cushions and blue-and-white scheme. The rug’s formal pattern ups the fanciness; the fringe keeps it laid-back.

South Kingstown, Rhode Island

New England has a way of making nautical irresistibly glam — think weathered wood and rattan textures (the table and chairs are from Wayfair). A long cushioned bench provides plenty of seating for lobster bakes, and pillows in red, white and blue add serious style points.

Bozeman, Montana

A mix of woods, including reclaimed barn planks on the wall and metal-frame seating by Casamidy, rock modern-rustic vibes in the West. The saddle-leather ties on the canvas backs are so cowboy!

Sacramento, California

Since outdoor living is the norm in Northern California, it’s no wonder that patios often resemble living rooms. This one’s Cali-cool blend of eclectic pillows, a graphic rug from Joss & Main and a sleek propane-fueled firepit from Wayfair make it a chill thrill.

Lake Geneva, Wisconsin

Crisp lake air calls for a cozy setup — cushy seats, a soft throw and logs on the firepit. The minimal black, white and gray palette keeps the focus on the view. Flagstone pavers, which hold up well during Wisconsin’s harsh winters and busy summers, are naturally slip-resistant.

Quogue, New York

Casual posh is a thing in this part of the Northeast. While the driftwood-gray club chairs by RH were arranged with low-key chats in mind, chevron-stripe pillows luxe up the scene. The concrete composite table, from Walters, looks like a stone one straight out of a historic estate. A big lantern is always an impressive — but not pricey — centerpiece.
