So I have been looking at pictures, designing things in my head, constantly thinking about how I can make my balcony into an extension of my living room. I love reading outside, laying in the sun and enjoying the peace and quiet that the outdoors brings. But also, while living in a condo it’s important to take advantage of all possible space and not waste any.
While I was away at work yesterday (celebrating the best birthday party ever with a group of amazing kids), a fairy princess came and decorated my balcony!! (Also known as my amazing mother.) I came home after a delicious birthday dinner at the Chop House, to what I thought was just cake and ice cream with the family, until I realized my balcony had been done.
I absolutely love it. My biggest thing when talking about decorating out there, was I wanted a lounger. I want to be comfortable and I want to be able to relax. Which is exactly now what I have. I can go out there and read a book, or take a nap or just lay and relax in the sun. The colour scheme is an extension of the inside of my condo, so the balcony doesn’t seem separate but instead apart of the inside layout.
Don’t ever think you’re done designing, there’s always something more you can do! Like an outdoor living space. Open your mind, expand your thoughts and make a deck into a part of your home.
