Hope you enjoy the reveal of my balcony this year as much as I do. I love how all the rooms in my condo are now unified by the similar intensity of patterns, colors, and best of all, my refining/maturing taste in home decor. Here are a few extra shoots I am super excited to share with you all.
I am crazy about the faux grass on the floor from Southwest Greens. For those of you who are considering putting grass somewhere grass just wouldn't grow, consider this eco-friendly alternative. It is certainly pleasing to the eye and very comfortable on foot! I even got Chris' stamp of comfort approval on floor covering. Now that doesn't happen at DesignMaze headquarter everyday.
The black and white polka dot pillow I purchased from marimekko definitely adds an elegant touch and double as the subdued backdrop for a vibrant shot of kelly green from the little throw pillow.
Hope my balcony makeover inspired you to start re-thinking about your own outdoor entertainment possibility. Remember, late summer and early fall is a great time to get outdoor furniture with exceptional quality for less. Check out Andrew Richard Designs and Casualife (two of my favourite spots for outdoor furnishings), and start planning your next summer party!
