Get the Look!
Hi friends! I’m sharing our balcony makeover today as part of the Garden Tour I’m participating in this week. My balcony needed a bit of sprucing up, since we rarely use it and haven’t put much effort into making it a place that we’d want to be. It’s part of the front elevation on our home, so our neighbors get a good view of it from the street as they walk/drive by each day. I feel bad that it has been such a bland space to look at all these years, but no more! Today it’s a tropical oasis for my family to enjoy and hopefully my neighbors too.
Using many of my existing outdoor pieces I created a small sitting area surrounded by tropical plants, and summery decor pieces. I have to say, I’m surprised that it came together so easily and so nicely too! I was thinking of pouring a bit of money into the space, but I couldn’t really come up with a clear idea of what to do with it other than to just update the existing layout, which obviously wasn’t working for us. I ended up scratching that idea and started designing the space based on the outdoor furniture pieces we already owned but weren’t currently using.
A small folding table surrounded by two white wicker chairs with tropical pillows for added comfort, create a nice setup for my family to enjoy during the cooler hours of these summer days. Surrounded by tropical plants the space takes on a tropical ambiance which I had hoped for. Being as I had no real plan when I started, this space came together with much less effort that I had ever thought! Now when I wake up in the morning and look out to this space I’m no longer greeted with a rundown, boring and undesirable view, but rather with an invigorating, and inviting space that calls to me like a siren. I just know we will be enjoying this balcony space even more now! I hope y’all like it!
Now I’d like to invite you to view the rest of the outdoor spaces being shared for the Garden Tour. Enjoy!
