As the weather continues to warm up, all of our parties, dinners, and activities head more and more into the lovely outdoors. If you’re getting ready to stock up on some new porch, deck, or patio decor, why not start with a bit of inspiration? Here are 16 decks that are just begging to be lounged on.

1. Pretty Cozy Patio: We love the cozy vibe of this deck, complete with lots of potted plants, gorgeous pillows, and a couple teeny tiny coffee tables. (via Better Home and Garden)

2. Eclectic Textiles: The boho style of this look is definitely made even better with that pooch! (via Apartment Therapy)

3. Painted Checkerboard Deck: Such a fun way to refinish a worn out deck. (via Sweet Parrish Place)

4. Picnic Bench: This beautiful scene is the classiest take on picnic bench style seating we’ve ever seen. (via iVillage)

5. Bring the Indoors Out: If you’ve got a kitchen, dining, or living room that opens up to the outdoors, bring chairs and tables from the indoors out! (via iVillage)

6. Minimal: Or you can always go for the extremely minimal look. Our favorite part about this? The robe hanging in the window of the bedroom ;) (via In A Luxe)

7. Outdoor Living Room: Now that’s a solid before and after! Love the warm party lights (see 10 ways to trick out your own!) and variety of seating. (via Apartment Therapy)

8. Large Low Deck: Okay, everything about this is kind of a dream. The gigantic deck? The mountains? You don’t even need furniture to make this deck an instant win. (via Sunset)

9. Cozy Gazebo: Create your own take on a secret garden by covering a gazebo or a few screens in ivy and other plants. (via Landscaping Network)

10. Tree Branch Furniture: This scene makes us think of faraway lands and exotic destinations. (via Better Home and Garden)

11. Small Rooftop Deck: Digging the all American palette of this small rooftop deck in Brooklyn. (via Apartment Therapy)

12. Carnations on the Deck: Turn your patio or deck into an outdoor dining room. (via One Wed)

13. Garden Wall: Even though it’s definitely a smaller deck, this might be our favorite one of the bunch. (via Homesthetics)

14. Party Time: We love the idea of turning a whole deck into a summertime party space. (via Life in Bridgetown)

15. Crazy Colorful Flora: So. Many. Flowers!! And we love the basket of lemons :) (via Better Home and Garden)

16. Outdoor Daybed: Can we please live in this outdoor scene? We’re loving the use of pipes as the edges of the daybed. (via Prudent Baby)
