Building a Dreamy Patio for Your California Home

Landing a patio or backyard with your California home purchase is a dream come true. The possibilities are endless—but putting together ideas to build a dreamy patio that matches your personal style and the aesthetic of your California home can be tricky. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of four top-rated patio designs to get your creative juices flowing.

#1 French-Style Patio

The first design we recommend is inspired by 18th century Perpignan houses. They are a beautiful blend of French and Spanish architecture characterized by light brown accents, dreamy landscapes, aromatic gardens, and an impressive orangery.

For a French-style patio that exudes a similar vibe, we recommend starting off with a Dutch door as your access point. Then, complement the entryway with lots of greenery and add grey wood furniture.

#2 Floral Veranda

If you prefer a shaded patio, then a veranda is the perfect option. You could go for a classic roofed open-air gallery or spice things up a bit with a wooden pergola. The gaps in the pergola can be filled with floral vines and hanging lamps. Add a chair and table set underneath it so your family can dine-out alfresco style.

Adding steel sliding doors to your California patio can help everyone get a view of the beautiful veranda even when you’re inside. They’re also great for catching some sun as the glass panes allow the sunshine to stream in and illuminate the room.  

#3 Moroccan Patio

When you think of the Moroccan aesthetic, bright colors and mosaic patterns are usually the first things that come to mind. So when you’re designing a patio inspired by the Mediterranean and Moroccan cultures, here a few things to keep in mind, starting with the color. Traditional Moroccan colors are very bright, like pink, red, fuchsia, teal, orange, purple, and green.

For the decor, adorn your patio with comfy seating, cushions, patterned rugs, and rattan lanterns. Furniture could include statement pieces, like wicker chairs, ottomans, and other low furniture. To complete the look, add an arched steel door for some dramatic flair.

#4 Modern Minimalist Patio

If your ideal patio involves a modern minimalist décor, here are some essential elements that should be on your mind. First, don’t go overboard with the colors. Stick with two or three neutrals such as black, white, or earthy tones.

Look for sleek but comfortable furniture to add to your patio. Opt for a bistro-style table set and a modern fireplace to enjoy cool evenings outside. Complement the look with sleek bi-fold accordion doors or steel sliding doors for an expansive view of your entire patio.
