Take a tour of this small but stylish balcony space
Be inspired by this gorgeous balcony and make the most out of your outdoor space during lockdown.
During the summer, turn to decor that conjures up a relaxed boho look, such as wall hangings and outdoor rugs in all colours and shapes.
Try layering rugs in different patterns and colours to create a striking look and add depth to a balcony with limited square footage.
Don’t forget to take advantage of vertical space. A decorative wooden ladder offers a spot for hanging succulents, small lanterns or woollen blankets for cooler evenings, while ceiling-mounted hanging chairs leave the floor free and convey a feeling of lightness
Colourful, sweeping or delicate – there are plants for every balcony. When making your choice, make sure to consider whether your green roommates need sun, shade or a mix. If you want a Mediterranean look, use plants such as lavender and eucalyptus. These are not only evergreen, but also have an enchanting scent. For those who want a practical green oasis, herbs are the perfect pick. Thyme, sage, mint, basil – the choice is huge. They look fab and smell wonderful and are ideal for adding something extra to lockdown meals.
A small lounge corner is essential for a ‘staycation’ feeling at home. Choose a lounge set in light cream shades and complement it with colourful, textured cushions and blankets, to give that Ibizan flavour.
Pouffes and stools in all shapes and colours are perfect for a small balcony and have a relaxed feel.
Light it up
If you want to make the most of the time on your gorgeous new balcony space, thankfully you don’t need much in the way of lighting to create the right ambience. Lanterns, votives and fairy lights can be artistically draped around a railing or scattered on an accent table, bathing your open-air oasis in an atmospheric glow.
