Beautiful rooftop patio design with a firepit

There is something about a beautiful rooftop patio design that just takes your breath away. But how do you transform an empty, colorless space into a modern patio design perfect for entertaining? This recent client decided to get started with an online interior design service and the result is a luxe Scandinavian escape. Read on to find out more!

The Challenge: A Rooftop Patio Design Online

The client wanted to create a rooftop patio design in time for his housewarming. However, the existing space was bare and exposed to the elements. Decorilla’s interior designers know what a patio needs, but had to overcome a few specific challenges in this project. The designer had to:

  • Include design elements that increase the rooftop patio’s privacy
  • Transform the bland, empty rooftop into an inviting and cozy outdoor area perfect for sunset gazing and socializing with friends
  • Ensure the online patio design contains durable and weatherproof outdoor furniture
  • Add hardy greenery that will survive all the seasons, like faux plants
  • Come up with a solution to shelter the patio from the wet Seattle weather

The Inspiration: Scandinavian & Moden Patio Designs

Warm, cozy, and modern patio designs caught the client’s attention. His inspiration gallery was nature-inspired, streamlined, and inviting. These interiors exude a welcoming, relaxed air – ideal for landowners.

With proposals from two interior designers, the client was spoilt for choice. In the end, he chose what suited him best. The client chose to work with Sarah M., the designer who previously completed his dining room design he thought was amazing. For this project, Sarah suggested a monochromatic color scheme in line with the client’s Pinterest board.

Her mood board consisted of elegant furniture and fun additions like string lights and Art Deco-inspired yard games. Two separate canopies would ensure the lounge and dining area are practical and comfortable throughout the year. And in addition to the client’s firepit, a heat lamp will keep guests warm in the coolest months.

At the heart of the design, a polished lounge set surrounds a modern firepit. The contemporary woven loungers, with their golden frames, are slightly turned towards the center of the rooftop. This positioning addresses a challenge the client was concerned about. Fortunately, the final design is cozy yet spacious. Thanks to a layout that encourages interaction, entertaining will be a breeze.

The unique checkered flooring was one thing that had to stay. Now the once quirky floor is what pulls the design together. And paired with contemporary furniture the rooftop becomes an elegant escape – perfect for sundowners.

Two black canopies not only act as a shelter from the rain but also help to create two distinct living areas. Dining and lounge areas may be separate, but the clever layout makes it feel much more like a shared space. The comfy contemporary lounge set faces the dining table as well as the open barbeque area. On rainy days the grill can easily move in next to the dining table. Underneath the canopies, the warm glow from string lights will also keep the party going.

Green privacy fencing makes the Scandinavian patio design feel tucked away and secluded. Although faux, it gives an air of whimsy, almost like it is part of a hidden garden. Enhancing that look, even more, is the potted greenery which also contrasts with the monochromatic color scheme. By adding terrace ideas, such as string lights and a wood dining table, the rooftop becomes warm and inviting. Lastly, final touches, like striped throw pillows, uplift the overall aesthetic.

Before The Change

Luckily, with the guidance of a professional interior designer and her online patio design, the rooftop turned into one of the dreamiest outdoor escapes.
