Balcony/patio inspiration: beautiful outside spaces

Spread the love

Our balconies and patios are our connection to the outside world right now. If you’re itching to decorate your space as hard as I am, here is some inspiration before you go out and drop some cash on decorations.

This past year and a half has shown me the intense luxury of having a great outdoor space. Whether it’s a small stoop or a full-on balcony.

But before the pandemic forced us into appreciating these spaces, I think that this is the area where design is most often neglected. But these outdoor spaces are such amazing opportunities for fun, functional, and beautiful design.

I’m living proof of what happens when you neglect these spaces. This is what my balcony is looking like now. So it’s time for a massive overhaul.

So for now, for your benefit and for mine, let’s take a look at some amazing outdoor balcony/patio spaces. Some are admittedly out of my tax bracket, but let’s live vicariously through these pictures and hopefully find some inspiration for ways to spice our outside space up a little bit.

Okay, now I’m about to go fuck up my bank account and do a little shopping to pimp my balcony. I really feel like I need a hanging chair. See you on the other side.

keep it homey, homies
