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.
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!
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.
