a small space
I need your help!
The husband is away so I need your advice. Input. Opinion.
I am trying to figure out how to finish decorating/organizing our balcony. You may have recently noticed our new grill, herbs, and cleaning frenzy these past couple of weeks, and now I am looking too make the final touches.
You know…table and chairs, flower boxes, flower stand, etc.
Okay, here are some pictures of the balcony to help get your creative juices flowing.
Quick side story….when I was watering our herbs two weeks ago, one of our neighbors was outside grilling on his balcony and shouted hello to me. It startled me for a second because no one in our building talks to each other. Yeah, it’s weird. I said hello back, and he immediately asked if we got moved in okay. In my head I was like, what? We have lived here for almost four years silly. I uttered back, ” Well, we’ve actually lived in our loft for about four years now, and we finally decided to get off our tookus and use the balcony.” He looked puzzled by my response. But he happily replied. “Well…welcome!” Now I see him daily and we converse.
Alright, back to the creativity. I have done some research on what works best in small spaces and have ended up spending a majority of my time on the CB2
website. (I wonder if there is a support group for people who compulsively by CB2 products because their stuff is awesome!)
What do you think of this chair?
Table? It folds down for easy storing.
As far as flower boxes go, we don’t get a ton of sunlight. Do you have any recommendations on flowers that are pretty but don’t require a mega load of rays? I am stumped in this area. My green thumb is still in it’s infancy stage.
Oh yeah, just in case you were wondering, our herbs are still alive. Whooohoooo!
Anyways, off to raid the fridge. Not quite sure what’s for dinner tonight. I am thinking pizza.
Yeah, pizza fo sure.
