Spring has finally arrived after what seems like the longest of winters. It's time to slowly start living outdoors as much as possible. For people who live in the cities and without a garden a balcony can be the haven needed to enjoy the seasons to the fullest extent. You don't need a lot of room to make an amazing space outside on a balcony. Lots of green plants, herbs and flowers and somewhere comfortable to sit and you are ready set go. Here are some photos that inspired me.
Plants! They are such a wonderful way to bring life and color into your home and an added bonus is that it’s really good for you. Most plants clean the air so what better reason do you need to buy some beautiful plants and place them wherever you like. I won’t pester you with lots of decorating rules about what is correct and not I will just say please people NO crawling plants that you can swirl around a bookcase or other furniture –keep them trimmed and neat looking. Also make sure to clean them. Plants need to be dusted off like the rest of your furniture both because it looks the best but also because plants can’t thrive with a layer of dust on them:) A little inspiration...
Summer, sunshine and warm weather means spending a lot of time outside. Just hanging out, eating, playing entertaining, sleeping whatever your pleasure. City life means that not very many people have the good fortune of a garden but if you have a balcony the opportunities are limitless in what you can do to create your own personal space and little piece of heaven.
