10 Patios for Relaxing in Style this Summer

It’s funny how things change as you get older.

(I know because I’m, um, older today.)

While I still love to celebrate my birthday for, well, the entire month, like any normal person, with dinners and wine with friends and trips and presents and too much cake, after a fun, fun, fun summer of lots of events and tons of guests and just the right amount of sun and salt and sand (because there’s never enough, is there?) I think what I’d like most for my birthday is to sit on my front porch.

It’s a pretty boring and simple request, but if there’s any time to reflect on your front porch, a birthday is the time to do it.

I insisted the cake on Friday and present opening on Saturday also take place outside because even though it’s hard for presents to get better, they actually are even better with a sunset in the background and a perfect summer breeze.

I love my porch very much, but it could certainly take some pointers from these gorgeous patios!

So whether you’re catching up with friends or a good book, sipping coffee or cocktails, any time is a good time to savor summer on one of these fabulous patios.

Thanks so much for stopping by Design Chic today. We always love seeing you here!

Fresh Summer Showers

Architectural Digest

 

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you are having a great day. With Fourth of July right around the corner, it’s time for sandy feel, pool time and plenty of guests. All we know is that our showers are getting ready to work over time!

New England Home Magazine

 

We do some of our best thinking in the shower. We don’t know if it’s the warm water or the quiet or the lack of multi-tasking but we always get the best ideas in there. But that’s just the beginning.

The shower is one of those places where function is really important. But when it can be this beautiful too, then the shower can quickly become a favorite spot in the house!  Isn’t this shower door amazing?

A rain shower head is so calming and perfect for refreshing skin after a long day of fun in the sun. It can turn a simple shower into a spa-like experience! And who couldn’t use more of that?

New England Home

Handheld shower heads are our new go-to, simply because they make cleaning the shower and bathtub an absolute breeze. With showers getting bigger and tilework more intricate, an easier clean is a must! Nothing makes it easier to reach those far-off shower corners where grime can accumulate.

New England Home Magazine

 

This rustic bathroom ceiling juxtaposes beautifully with the marble tile to create a one-of-a-kind experience that is utterly chic.

From simple tile to luxurious marble, there’s the right shower for any decor and feel. And a garden seat is one of our favorite spots for stacking towels.

Terra Cotta Design

 

We love the chair in here and the extra storage under the sinks and basket for putting spare towels is a bonus! There never seem to be enough towels!

Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles

 

Marble tile in a herringbone pattern makes the shower fun and a little bit different, while a soaking tub is perfect for unwinding after a long day.

Design Chic

 

We used a simple subway tile in Little Will’s shower with a soft gray grout and love it! The color makes it easier to clean and in an old house it’s simple yet functional. The stool is his new favorite thing. Not only is it useful, but the teak is also beautiful and water resistant, which is a must in a bathroom.

But there’s no reason to stick to just one material. Mixing and matching for a totally custom look is so much fun.

Connecticut Cottages & Gardens

 

With so many beautiful choices, it’s hard to pick a favorite. All we need now is one of those waterproof shower pads for writing down all our great ideas!

Thank you so much for stopping by Design Chic.  We always love it when you do.  Happy Monday!
