Outdoor Decor: Summertime Patio Ideas

For most of us, summertime brings nostalgic memories: time off from school, playing with friends, taking family trips, and, above all, spending lots of time outdoors. Carefree school days might feel like they’re a lifetime away. But there’s no reason adults can’t recapture summertime outdoor experiences.

At Old World Stoneworks, our main focus is on keeping the indoors cozy. But did you know that you can also take our cast stone mantels outdoors? Here are a few ways you can enjoy the outdoors with our mantels this summer:

Let the outdoors in

Love a roof over your head, and also love the outdoors? This room design lets you bring the outdoors in, while still retaining the comforts of big cushiony chairs, a rug, and ceiling fan. Here, our Fremont combines with an open wall plan reminiscent of a Caribbean villa. We can almost hear the calypso music.

What could be more charming than hosting dinner for friends and family outdoors, but shielded by the deep eaves of your house? If there’s an evening shower, you’re protected from raindrops. Chill in the air? Light a fire in our Stamford. This is outdoor dining at its chicest for you and seven of your nearest and dearest.

For those who wish to go daringly unprotected from the elements by a roof or eaves, we offer this freestanding style. We love how our Cambridge looks on this brick feature. Imagine sitting on your padded loveseat at twilight, lighting a fire in your Cambridge and watching the shadows lengthen over your private forest.

These are just a few ideas for your summertime lounging and entertaining. With our beautiful, versatile cast stone mantels, the possibilities are endless. Give us a call and we’ll brainstorm the best designs for your summertime indoor/outdoor living.
