Lucky enough to have a backyard to call your very own? Then you’ll definitely want to make the most of the space and keep it top of mind the next time you’re looking to scratch that design itch. We’re here to help you get started with some extra creative backyard decor ideas.

Bring on the Wicker

Wicker furniture and accents are perfect for the backyard, and the more of this material, the merrier, as seen in this space designed by Liz Williams Interiors. We love the addition of a wicker basket leaning above the outdoor fireplace as a festive finishing touch.

Try Dark Patio Walls

Don’t be afraid to go moody when picking a paint color for the patio walls, particularly if you plan to hang a TV out there. This dark gray shade, selected by Lindsie Davis at Blueberry Jones Design, looks sophisticated while helping to camouflage the black box.

Cover a Sofa With Fun Outdoor Fabric

Recover an outdoor sofa that needs a bit of a revamp using a fabric that inspires you. This peppy print that Ashley Macuga of Collected Interiors chose is welcoming and full of fun. Just be sure to select a performance fabric that can withstand the elements and not fade in the sun.

Hang a Pendant Light

Eye-catching light fixtures aren’t solely for indoor areas. Make a statement on the patio with a woven chandelier like this one, which Shelby and Kasey van Daley of Daley Home skillfully incorporated into this space.

Keep Throw Blankets Handy

Make like Meredith Owen of Meredith Owen Interiors and set out some throw blankets so guests can cozy up and still enjoy spending time outdoors when the temps drop at night. As a bonus, stylish blankets will add color and texture to your patio, making them a no-brainer!

Opt for an Antiqued Look

For a storied look in the backyard, weave in some antiqued-looking plant pots in the yard for that perfect vintage touch. Anastasia Casey of The Interior Collective scattered together a group of vessels on the ground and incorporated some smaller pieces onto her tablescape.

Display a Succulent Centerpiece

Draw inspiration from Amy Peltier, the founder of Peltier Interiors, and display a centerpiece full of succulents on your outdoor table if you’re going for a timeless, non-season specific look. Succulents are easy to maintain, but you can even go the faux plant route if you prefer!

Opt for Stylish Storage
