With Vancouver’s year round mild temperatures the balcony is a welcomed addition of square footage. It is important to create a cozy and inviting space to make sure the it is utilized to the full potential. My inspiration started with this picture on craigslist, I think they were giving away the rug.
My new balcony is pretty much exactly the same including a partition with a ledge that would work perfectly for a piece of art, maybe my Starry Starry Night. The rail is also half concrete half bars for a nice bit of privacy while still showing the view, unfortunately there isn’t a plug for a lamp.
I love these cozy patios on Apartment Therapy; the pillows, the drapes, hanging ornaments and slat floors. I have a bamboo mat and throw pillows that could begin the creation of this vibe.
The Parisian balcony with a set table and flower planters is lovely, and my balcony table is very similar. Perhaps with a garden statue and wild vines.
How did you decorate your backyard or balcony?
