While ancient in concept, the pergola has been experiencing a bit of a modern renaissance these days. A stylish outdoor shelter with no walls (or otherwise built as a singular addition to one’s house), a pergola is a breezy way to take some shade during warmer, sunnier seasons. There are a multitude of pergola ideas to choose from, depending on your tastes and lifestyle. Table settings, chaise lounges, and even wet bars can be implemented into a pergola, while many also opt to add latticework and planter boxes to encourage blooming flora & fauna.
This pergola provides comfortable bench seating for your garden while also supporting your garden by providing vertical space for staggered planters at each end of the bench. The colorful pillows tossed onto the bench’s white cushioned seat and back echo the colors of the garden flowers, adding to the cheerful look of the nook.
For this casual, summery look, you can use locally-sourced materials for an eco-friendly touch. The dual pergola-porch area is paved with gray stones. Stone steps add an intriguing, warm color contrast. The white, wooden roof of the pergola extends out from the house to two pillars that combine wood and gray stone to unify the look.
If you entertain outdoors in the summer, create an outdoor bar for your guests. Using rough stone blocks of various sizes and colors creates a natural feel while a marble countertop provides contrast. The pergola-awning attaches to the house, and the bar is built around its supports. Add casual stools for seating.
