Use a neutral color palette
The patio floor is unpatterned concrete in pristine white.
The chairs and tables, from the 1966 Collection by Richard Schultz, are also white.
Why it works: Neutral colors are restful to look at, and here, they frame views rather than compete with them.
Adapt the idea: Try pewter-colored furniture with blue-gray cushions on bluestone pavers, or teak with sandy peach fabric on Arizona flagstone.
