Just like indoor rooms, an outdoor room’s story is told in the decorative details. In this Los Angeles-inspired veranda, a table and chairs set add a rustic sense of luxury. What are your favorite ways to bring the style?

Nothing says summer more than porch swing or some rocking chairs. If you have the former, hang it from a porch, pergola or even from a hefty tree branch, and get ready to swing the days away, cold drink in hand. No swing? Just invest in some classic wicker furniture with cozy, welcoming cushions.

Don’t forget the lighting. Whether you use in-ground solar lights, suspend candelabras from the trees or string party lights as in this backyard party area, the proper illumination will keep the party going all night long.

So ring in summer your favorite way — with a backyard bash for 20 or on the porch swing solo, book at your side. No matter how you like it, this is the year to create the outdoor room you’ve always wanted.
