Pretty Patios: Black and White Edition

Have you started pulling out all of your patio furniture? We can't believe it's that time of year, but summer is definitely here! We've been doing lots of research when it comes to patios and have saved some of our favorite designs along the way. The look we are loving this year: black and white. Everything about a black and white patio feels crisp, clean, and totally classic. Take a look at some of our favorites:

While there's no black in sight, we love the white! One of our favorite combinations for just about any space includes woods with whites. It always makes a space feel fresh and crisp!

This sweet spot combines black, white, and wood. It is beautiful and inviting, and the greenery and bright pink flowers just add another fun element of interest.

This outdoor patio is the perfect example of cozy and intimate. The furniture and throw pillows are simple and the black and white stripe rug pulls it all together. Not to mention, the flowers and greenery are just breathtaking!

We love how fun and playful this painted checkerboard patio turned out. The simple black furniture paired with pops of red make this spot the perfect place to spend summer evenings.

Another beautiful and cozy spot that features black and white as well as hints of gray and blue. It's a lovely combination that is totally timeless. We could relax here all night!

There are so many fun things to do with your patio space. We couldn't decide on a favorite, can you?
