Outdoor Decor: 15 Backyard Gazebos That Are Perfect For Summer Entertaining (PHOTOS)

When it comes to relaxing outside, we like to think of a gazebo as the perfect backyard getaway. Whether you're looking for a sunny spot to entertain or just want to sit back and take in a beautiful day, a gazebo is all about creating a comfortable place where you can enjoy the outdoors. And, with a few simple touches -- like adding a wind chime or flower pot -- you can turn an ordinary gazebo into a calming space that's all your own.

From sweeping patio canopies to smaller wooden alcoves tucked into scenic backyard corners, we've rounded up 15 gazebos that are currently inspiring us. Looking for ideas to get your own gazebo ready for spring? Just flip through our slideshow below.
