Shade a sunlit pathway with a pergola that extends all or part of the way along its length. Planters filled with flowering plants fastened between supports cross the walkway overhead adding color and fragrance as well as shade. Hanging baskets, small trees, and plants in tall planters shade the sides of the path.
The dark wood columns of this pergola suggest the dark wood entrance to a Victorian parlor. The blue and white tile flooring picks up the parlor idea and carries it into the outdoor living space, but the wicker furniture continues the garden feel. The blue and white pillows complete the setting, echoing the tile’s colors without repeating the pattern.
Relax in a country cottage garden under this thatch-roofed pergola. It offers seating to suit everyone. A bench sits on one side of a coffee table, balanced informally by a metal chair and an arrangement of potted plants. Someone could even take a nap in the hammock swinging between the pergola’s supports.
Though you can buy traditional pergolas in cedar, metal, and aluminum options, they all have the same general shape. Mediterranean-inspired with criss-cross beams and an earth-tone canopy is what you’d expect a pergola to look like. But if you’d categorize your style as modern and sleek, then traditional’s probably not the vibe you’re looking for in your backyard oasis. Modern pergolas have sharper angles, less decorative beams, and lend themselves to all sorts of decor.
