Forgive us for being literal, but a savanna-inspired patio for a Leo is a cool idea. A lawn-free landscape is a dramatic backdrop for natural materials like rattan, paper, and ceramic tile with a mossy green glaze. A chair with a high back is a fitting perch for the zodiac’s most notorious attention seekers. A long table with stools or benches and a throne at either end for the host leaves no question who’s the center of the action. Leos love luxury, and creating an outdoor den with luxe safari vibes—including a boho print rug and romantic lighting—wouldn’t be overkill.
