A Cali-casual patio starts with a zen focal point. This one has a dreamy water garden, with Adirondack chairs—so hip in black!—grouped irresistibly around it. Accessories with fun geometric patterns and bright colors also bring a fab West Coast feel. Garden stools come in handy as side tables, footrests and even extra seating.

To give your porch seaside style, pair beachy materials such as jute and teak with navy blue and white. Bonus points for hanging chairs, which bring breeziness and bliss, and a shiplap-style ceiling. Nautical stripes are forever appealing, but with such a simple palette, it’s easy to drop in accessories in a variety of patterns.

A mix of modern and vintage-y pieces with one thing in common (white!) creates an eclectic escape that’s laid-back yet put together. Add in a blend of textures—fuzzy, nubby and woven—to make the space even more inviting. For a hit of global charm, think tie-dyed fabrics in jewel tones and Moroccan-inspired accessories.

As awesome as Caribbean turquoise and tangerine are, earthy browns and lush greens can look just as fresh and fun. The natural texture of the love seat, chairs and rug give this porch its resort ambience; the graphic lumbar pillow adds a contemporary touch. A sprinkling of pillows with a bold palm leaf pattern turns up the oasis factor in this aah-inspiring space.
