Dreaming of Summer - Part 1

I cannot wait for summer this year! This time of year the summer bug always kicks in for me, but this year I'm looking forward to it more than ever. For the first time I have my own yard, which means I have my own outdoor space to furnish. I'm so excited with dreams of my patio life, sipping cocktails with the girls, roasting marshmallows over the fire pit, reading a book while swinging on my hammock.

I definitely need to find a good deal on paving stones too, I'm planning on going all out! Here's some inspiration for the overall vibe I'm trying to decide on for my patio. In part 2 I'll delve into my furniture choices.

This rustic set-up from Soul Decor is really cute, and looks relaxed and casual. I also happen to have a bench that is very similar to this one, and haven't been able to find a spot for it inside.

This patio from Coastal Living is stunning! I love the color choices. It would be great to have such a fun, beach-y feel in my own backyard. 
This vintage patio image is from a 1959 advertisement, and is just perfect for my house!

This little patio from House Beautiful would look great in my backyard, and it would match my new metal roof!

I love the vintage look of this patio from an article I spotted on etsy. I also happen to have a cone chimney in yellow!

This low maintenance patio from Elle Decor would be perfect for low-key get togethers.

This space from This Old House is definitely more porch than patio, but I love the wicker furniture.

I think it's the color scheme that draws me to this relaxing retreat from Decor to Adore.

This picture looks like the perfect setting for an afternoon tea, or even a low key baby shower.

Finally this cute patio from House and Home would be easy to replicate with some patio chairs and a reclaimed wood table.
