With summer just around the corner, let's take it outside for a moment. Whether you're working with an entire yard, patio or a small entry way, it's easy to create a modern outdoor space you'll want to pass the time in.

Start with nature. For outdoor spots that are all hardscape, use potted plants and add a water feature. Where a pond is untenable, a fountain will more than do. There are dozens of contemporary outdoor fountains that combine modern design with easy plug in operation.

Now make this a place worth stopping in. The addition of one or two modern outdoor chairs makes your space relaxation-ready. 

Lastly, if you truly love your outdoor space, you may end up staying out into the night. So add a candle lantern and enjoy the starlight by candlelight. Below are some modern looks for our next outdoor space:

As you may have noticed in the spaces pictured above, it doesn't take much to create something comfortable outdoors. Simply add plants and something cool to sip on...and enjoy!
