A small bench fits in so nicely and makes for a lovely breakfast nook (via apartment therapy)
This balcony was lined with fabric... it's charming!
Below... great ideas from Ikea:
Solar lights, colourful plant pots that hang off balcony railings, outdoor pillows, material potting bags, and wooden outdoor flooring to hide ugly cement.
Stone mat flooring from the Urban Balcony
And of course, a balcony would not be complete without a little veggie & herb garden! (These are the cherry tomatoes I grew last year).
Now enough dreaming and on to some actual doing!
