Styling the Private Balcony Oasis

Blog Post

Private balconies are a fashionable, on trend way of incorporating an intimate link between the house and a sanctuary that keeps the aesthetic of the home connected to the natural world. The green global movement is very pertinent right now and what better way to style your private balcony, than with hanging or large potted plants, fixture lighting and comfortable furniture to really make the most of your lazy Sunday afternoons, and weekends in general.

The Insider
Create your own private Idaho with hanging plants, (quirky) plant stands, vertical plants and terrariums to dress your balcony with living, green colour pop. A patio garden incorporated into your terrace extension, will be aesthetically soothing to the eye, and add an extra dimension to the space, giving you the benefits from the light force of plants.

Go with the Glow
The use of lighting on a private balcony, definitely heightens the allure of the area. Try using candles, hanging fairy lights or antique lanterns to achieve this look. This will be the perfect way to spend “date-night” in an intimate and romantic ambience.

Pillow Talk
To get that resort look on your private balcony, decorate with durable, but sumptuous outdoor day beds, love seats, pillows, throws and rugs. It can be a way to stamp your particular style on a space that is completely tailored to your sensibility.

Keep it cosy
If you are looking for ideas on how to make use of your balcony through all seasons it is worth a look at Tropical Louvres or Ziptrak blinds to create an all year ‘round outdoor room. Add an outdoor Heat Strip and you have a cosy winter retreat to escape to.
