When decorating a condo or apartment, oftentimes the balcony gets overlooked, but when decorated properly, it can be a charming oasis to enjoy the summer. Whether you have a small terrace or balcony, incorporating a table and some type of seating is integral to the design process. This way you can enjoy your views and have somewhere to place a drink and a book, or even potted plants and flowers. If your outdoor space is not sheltered, consider an umbrella to shade you from the hot sun in the warm summer months. Furnishings should be versatile, small but comfortable. Before purchasing, make sure you check the sizing of your space to make sure everything will fit properly. Consider even stackable or folding chairs if you don’t have a lot of space, that way they can be placed out of the way when not in use. If you select furnishings in bright hues, you will add a playful, vibrant feel to your outdoor space. Plants are a must to creating your little outdoor oasis, whether you create a vertical garden, place plants in pots on the ground or on a table, or hang them from the ceiling. Consider a small herb garden so that when you cook you will have some fresh herbs to add to your dinner! Enjoy romantic dining outside under the stars, on your balcony space, and even if you don’t have room for a table and chairs, you can always add a large floor pillow, they are lots of places that sell outdoor pillows, such as World Market and Pier 1 Imports. You could even affix a hammock on your balcony and enjoy an afternoon siesta. If you have enough space, you could also consider placing a love seat or small sofa and a throw to keep you cozy and comfortable while enjoying a good book.
