Whether you have a spacious outdoor deck, or a barely room to turn around balcony, when the weather turns hot, those outdoor spaces become our sanctuaries. With a little bit of inspiration, you can turn any outdoor space into an escape.



Cohesive Colours
Picking a colour scheme will help make your patio look as pulled together as any room inside you  house. The casual feel of the outdoors makes playing with brights fun and easy, or try soft neutrals for a serene setting.



Summer nights spent on the patio with friends can make up some of the best summer memories. Organic table linens can help set the scene.



Lay down a Rug
If you have a covered porch or patio, a rug is a great way to pull the faux room together. Just make sure you find a durable one!





Pallet DIYs
We’ve all seen pallets used extensively but its a DIY that fails to grow old. Life on the Balcony takes a fresh approach and shows how to turn a pallet into a vertical garden.



Small Spaces
If your balcony is on the small side, a little clever decorating will help to maximize its potential. Round tables, hanging flower baskets, and bench seating all add function and design to these small balconies.
