So you're blessed with an apartment balcony, but there's just one problem — it's tiny. Fret not, you can still style it like you've got an entire backyard. (OK, maybe not really, but you can try.)
Before getting lost on Pinterest for hours (or let's be real, days), check out the nine design inspiration ideas below. Happy decorating, and may your balcony be the best in the building.
1. Table and chair set
Choose a table and chair set with a vibrant hue for a refreshing pop of color on an otherwise neutral balcony.
2. Plants and pillows
Potted plants next to pillows make for an earthy and relaxing vibe.
3. Lighted Mason Jar
Strategically place a lighted Mason jar (or three) on a side table for a romantic feel.
4. String lights
These aren't just for the holidays — wrap a set of string lights around your space to add a certain je ne sais quoi.
5. Hanging plants
Because no one ever tires of looking at plants that defy gravity.
6. Mini palms
California dreamin' just became a reality.
7. Mosaic candles
Upgrade your candle game with a mosaic votive holder (or any other stylish centerpiece).
8. A little fountain
Make your own waterfront property. These small fountains are elegant and peaceful to watch.
What better way to wind down at the end of a long day? The best part is they take up no floor space so you can add a carpet, candles, or other design elements.
