How to upgrade your balcony
How I would love to have a balcony.
Many years ago when I was at Uni I had a teeny tiny one with old, worn, iron railings. I furnished it with a small iron chair and a little table. It led off my bedroom and I just adored it. I would sit outside early in the morning with a coffee and listen to the birds in the garden and take a deep breath before my day began. It was a wonderful time. I remember an old boyfriend serenading me from underneath it once too. Very Romeo and Juliet.
It was however concrete and a bit ugly and looking back I so wish I had taken a bit more effort to make it really beautiful and much more comfortable
We are currently on the lookout for a new home and I would absolutely love our new property to have a little balcony for my early morning coffees and maybe a late night glass of wine too, under the stars.
A roof window balcony is a wonderful concept and one I would adore in my new home.
Gosh isn’t this just gorgeous. All that lovely light and a chance to step out int0 the fresh air too. Oh I would just love this!
This style of balcony would be a serious upgrade on my old concrete one with rusted iron railings.
I would definably add a lantern, perhaps a few fairy lights and a lovely plant or two. You could even trail plants form the railings to save the ground space. If I had a large enough balcony i would but a little patio heater for it so I could maximize the time I spent out there.
If all I had room for though was a little chair I’d try and get a little rocker and I would buy a beautiful soft throw in baby blue to keep me cozy when I was out there. Finally, I came across some lovely ideas to make the most of your balcony and turn it in a tiny garden.
Wouldn’t it just be the perfect place to read too?
