These gorgeous patio designs will have you begging for sunny days.

Winter is gone, spring is upon us and summer is fast-approaching. And where there's warm weather, there are days spent on the patio. To kick off the days of frivolous lounging and endless refreshments, we're taking a look back at some of our fave patio designs from the WL archives. bh-reno-8.jpg (Photo: Ema Peter.)
