(Editor’s Note: Fall’s a golden time almost everywhere. The fall patio on the right is in San Luis Obispo, on California’s Central Coast, and designed by Jeffrey Gordon Smith.)

The pace of life seems to accelerate in fall — vacations end, school’s in session, chores await. Yet fall has wonderful things to offer.

Here are some fall patio pictures. Hopefully, whatever outdoor space you have access to, you’ll feel inspired to enjoy the chill in the air, relax with friends, sit near a fire, sip some tea, or just unwind…

Fall Patios: Getting A Breather…

I love the fall elements of this patio, designed by Beautiful Bones & Purple Stones. The color of the maples (these are native to the Pacific Northwest). The wood-burning fireplace. Autumn leaves on hand-cut natural stone. The laid-back Adirondack chairs are just right…

Here’s the same patio at dusk. I love how the lanterns spring to life and create mood lighting that circles the seating area!

Further south, in San Francisco, is a patio basically made for fall in northern California. I’m thinking this fireplace, friends, and hot apple cider!

This patio, near Boston, also has a gorgeous wood-burning fireplace. A warm fire is perfect in the fall. I love this stone, a New England granite fieldstone, according to the architect, Timothy Lee Landscape Design. Ah, and the New England fall color!

Let’s head to this Toronto patio, where an autumn sunset catches the pergola, stone, and wicker chairs. I can almost hear that cascade of water from the fountain. What a gorgeous water feature…

Could this gorgeous patio and infinity pool look any better at another time of year? I doubt it. What colors…

Did I just say “What colors”? I think I’ll say it again. This is in Seattle, and the orange tree on the left is a Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum ‘Iijima sunago’), according to the designer, Bliss Garden Design.
